EARLY BOOKING – IS IT WORTH IT ?
At this time of year you’re more likely to be making the most of what’s left of the summer than planning your next ski holiday – but its’ well worth thinking of booking your winter break now.
Here are a few reasons why booking early is a good idea:
+ GET THE ACCOMMODATION YOU WANT
You guarantee getting your accommodation of choice in your resort of choice if you book early. Leave it too late and the best hotels and chalets in the best resorts will almost certainly be booked up.
This is especially important if you want something a little specialised such as a large chalet for a group of friends or are restricted to travelling at the peak periods of Christmas/New Year, February half-term or Easter
+ GET DISCOUNTS
You can pick up early booking discounts on everything from accommodation to lift passes and ski and board rental. This can make a significant saving on the cost of your holiday, especially for families and groups.
+ GET THE BEST RENTAL EQUIPMENT
Talking of ski rental, by booking your skis or board early you guarantee getting the model you want. As always, Ski Republic have carefully selected new equipment to add to their adult, children’s and teenage ranges; ensuring that everyone (from beginners through to experienced skiers) can ski on the latest and most sought after skis.
+ KEEP YOUR MONEY (SORT OF)
If you book early you’ll often find that you only need pay a low deposit and can pay off the rest at over the coming months
+ SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO
A large part of the fun and excitement of a ski holiday is looking forward to and planning it – book now and you have plenty of time to make those plans, research and buy your new ski gear and decide which runs you’re going to ski and which restaurants and bars you’ll be checking out.
+ BE PREPARED
What better incentive to get fit for the ski season than booking your holiday? With several weeks (if not months) to go until you hit the mountains you’ve got plenty of time to get in shape. You can even plan a ski-specific training plan.
By being ski fit when you get to the slopes you’ll have a much more enjoyable (and safer) ski holiday – check our next posting for tips on how to get fit for the ski season.
