Ski season may have just finished but plenty of people are already looking ahead and booking their spot in the mountains for next winter. The UK ski travel industry is reporting increases in early bookings for ski holidays for winter 2014/15. With plenty of early booking offers available for all group sizes, it’s never too early to start dreaming of next winter’s ski trip.

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should start thinking about securing your ski holiday sooner rather than later.

5. Getting your place on peak dates

With recent legislation prohibiting parents from taking children out of school in term time, there is even more demand for holidays during peak dates. The festive period is popular for groups and families alike as the mountains create the perfect backdrop for the best Christmas and New Year getaway – is there anything better than waking up to fresh snow on Christmas Day?

Most schools in England and Wales begin half term on February 14th, which also conflicts with school holidays in Paris, ‘Zone A’ regions of France, and Belgium. Any families that take their ski holiday in half term knows how busy this week can be at airports and in the larger resorts so it is even more important to book early to get the best choice of flights and accommodations to make your week as squabble-free as possible. With hiking flight prices around these dates, the best offers are through package deals. Early bird Half Term Deals

Next year Easter falls on a more suitable date to take advantage of the last of the ski season, on April 5th. After the incredible snowfall at the end of this winter we are expecting Easter to be a very popular date for keen skiers and snowboarders that want an end of season fix. Fantastic Easter Savings

4. Low deposits


As well as securing the best accommodation in your favourite resort, if you book now you can pay a low deposit from just £99 pp and pay off the rest over the summer.


3. Peace of mind

Put your deposit down and look forward to your next adventure in the mountains. We all love a countdown, so you can start getting excited and begin counting down the weeks till ski season (we’ve started ours already!)

If you love planning, you can now start to think about other ways to make the most of your ski holiday and start thinking about the best ski areas, top restaurants and the greatest après to make your week away the best ski trip ever.

2. Extra offers

Booking early means getting the best choice of accommodation in the finest locations in resort. This is extremely important for families who are looking for their own chalet for the week, or a group of friends desiring a hot tub, or if you are like me and have to have a ski in – ski out accommodation so you can make the most of your time on the mountain.
