Calling skiers and fussy eaters

As the exchange rate dipped towards €1.08 at the end of September after the new Chancellor’s poorly received budget, booking a Club Med all-inclusive skiing holiday, is probably about 10% more appealing this year, than last year, when £1 still got €1.21.

It’s not the fluctuating exchange rates thats behind Club Meds skiing success. In the past 5 years, Club Med have opened new and upgraded ski resorts in Val Thorens, Tignes, La Rosiere, Samoens, Alpe d’Huez and Les Arcs. Each new opening is raising the bar just that little bit higher.

Why is Club Med so popular?

Apart from the spectacular hotels and locations on the piste, value for money is key to Club Meds success, the extras that are included with a Club Med package holiday add real value, we think about €1,000 per person of added value. When you hear that the average price paid by Ski Line’s clients is around £1,800pp, you are probably not deducting the added value to come with up £800. But that’s always what first-time visitors to Club Med say, when they call us to rebook another Club Med ski holiday.

With Club Med, it’s the bits the other ski package tour operators don’t do, that skiers love.

They all include accommodation flights and transfers, occasionally you might get a deal on free ski pass, or discounted ski equipment rental. But the likes of Skiworld, Crystal and Inghams, don’t include all your après ski rounds at the bar or 3-course lunches with wine and cheese.

Club Med included lots of extras

  • Ski pass – Included, it is worth around €300
  • 3-course lunch with unlimited wine – Included, worth at least €50 a day in any mountain restaurant
  • Ski lessons for all levels – Included ESF group lessons start at €240
  • Interconnecting rooms – Included, some tour operators charge up to €200 room supp
  • Off-piste ski guide – Included ESF off piste starts at €395 for 5 days
  • Free bar even cocktails – Included – How much was the last round you bought in a ski resort? Now imagine that over a week. We are modest drinkers at Ski Line, well Elaine likes a glass of wine!!! But we can see at least €200 of added value in a free bar.

We estimate our clients will see the added value of around €1,000 if they choose Club Med rather than a package ski holiday with Skiworld, for example. The savings are even greater for advanced skiers wanting an off-piste.

The food at Club Med

Enough has been written about the food at Club Med already, if you are a regular Club Medder, who has the 45 t-shirt, you will know what I mean… If you haven’t been, you’re in for a surprise and you too will probably be seen in your 45.

Oh, if you have a fussy eater in your family/group, you should definitely book a Club Med ski holiday. Club Med’s choices are plentiful, Our PM Liz Truss, would find the cheeseboard a disgrace!
