we've decided that we can't afford to pay the £2700 balance for our holiday over new year. this wouldve included all food, lessons, lift passes etc for a family of 4. we're losing our £400 deposit.
wanted to ask if any one was watching the last minute deals last NY...is there any chance of getting a ridiculously cheap hol if we book a couple of days before we go, dyou think?? (ie under a grand for a family of 4)
Think it is pretty unlikely depending unless you can be very flexible, perhaps drive down and book sc independently. You are looking at probably £250 for lift passes for a week alone plus lessons etc since the euro is strong against the £. Sympathies, we too have no firm plans to ski this season . We had planned to go to Florida but have decided against that and no ski booking made yet.
I can't see that you'll get a ski holiday for 4 for much less than £2k once you've included ski passes, equipment hire, lessons, insurance etc, etc. to be honest. But it's always worth a look - you just might get lucky.
could you postpone the skiing holiday to the Easter hols - same accommodation, same company? (or holiday might be much cheaper if you can go week before Christmas). It would be awful for you to spend £400 and not have the holiday.
I'm feeling worried about the rate of £ to Euro for our holiday as we are self catering and will be buying everything there...we are going at New Year. I can't wait to go skiing though.
