As we hit half term we are now half way through the season. With hot deals hitting the shelves left, right and centre and with said deals selling like hot cakes, I had a word with AJ, Iglu's Head of Sales, for his tips on making the most of the deals.

With snow aplenty and great deals to be had, if you are ready to move quickly and have a little bit of flexibility, there are some amazing holidays to be had.

So, with the phones being busy, let's keep this short and sweet:

#1 — Join the rest of the savvy crowd and call Igluski.

#2 — Check the website at 9am or earlier. Once the deals hit the site they will go go go. By afternoon the best deals are already gone.

#3 — Sign-up to the Iglu email newsflashes (see sidebar) and read them as soon as they arrive, as these are usually the best deals around and the most popular.

#4 — Keep an eye on our ski deals page, for up-to-date last minute deals and offers.

#5 — Don’t expect to get a regional flight. Manchester or Gatwick will be your main gateways to the slopes.

#6 — Follow the snow. Read about snow predictions and be prepared to compromise on accommodation standard to get the right resort.

#7 — If you want a particular resort then don’t wait too long. The premier resorts like Val d’Isére, Verbier, and Courchevel will sell out completely up to three weeks prior to departure.

#8 — Have an even number of friends. Odd numbers and late deals don’t mix!

#9 — There is no such thing as a late deal on a short break.

And the most important one of all:

#10 — Do not go away to ask friends, because your deal was just sold to someone more switched on and ready to go.

So, with our fantastic ski deals, the great snow reports data on our site and regular weather & resort updates in our ski news, you should be armed with everything you need.
