Skiing on a shoestring can be luxury in Europe
By Allan Halsall
There was a time when only students were open to the idea of travelling on a shoestring, but with the recession showing no signs of disappearing anytime soon, many people who refuse to give up on their skiing holiday are instead embracing the idea of travelling on a shoestring. Now this is often quite easy to achieve for summer holidays – book a cheap flight then book a cheap hotel. But for skiing holidays you’ve got expensive ski passes and ski hire costs which cannot be avoided.
So what exactly do people do when they want to travel on a shoestring for a ski holiday? There are no sites out there which truly compare ski holidays like for like, however there are some real bargains for skiers when buying from well known online tour operators as opposed to the usual high street names. For example, some of these real bargains for customers wanting to travel on a shoestring can be found at online tour operator ActivityBreaks who offers a line of budget friendly ski offers such as their ski deal in the Italian Alps including ski passes and ski hire at just £107.
Another deal to the Dolomites is from £163 which is 4* and also includes passes and ski hire or try France in their ski apartments in Termignon from less than £8 per person per night! For a few pounds more you can get the luxury of a ski and spa package in some other great resorts they serve.
With prices like these available on the internet, it goes to prove that arranging a great skiing holiday on a shoestring really is possible, as when you match one of these deals with a budget flight, then you can realistically get away on a ski break for well under £200!
