DIY ski package holiday makes sense if you plan ahead

17th July 2017

There are several benefits in choosing a ski resort with the shortest transfer time, the obvious one being that you get there quicker!

If you plan ahead and book a DIY ski package holiday you can make great savings.

A DIY ski package holiday can, in certain situations, be cheaper than booking a package holiday. The transfer costs are the fly in the ointment, so if you are considering a DIY package, choose a ski resort within easy reach of the local airport so you can keep the costs of the transfer to a minimum.

Budget airlines, such as Easyjet, have 11 flights a day from Gatwick to Geneva alone, that’s on top of the flights from 14 other regional airports in the UK.

Book the flights early enough and you could be paying as little as £25 each way for your flights (plus luggage costs).

Many of the independently run catered ski chalets tend to be located in ski resorts closer to the airports in resorts such as Morzine for example.

The cost of a DIY package holiday vs a tour operators package is about £200 per person cheaper.
