Top 5 reasons to book your winter ski holiday early

Get the best winter ski deals, flights and accommodation by booking early

Plenty of people are already looking forward to next year’s winter ski holiday, with many taking advantage of the benefits of early booking. With a wider choice of flights, dates and accommodation – especially during school holidays – and the ability to spread the cost of your holiday, it’s well worth booking before everyone else. Here are our top five reasons to get in there early.

1. The early bird catches the best deals

The sooner you book your winter ski holiday, the more chances you have of bagging a fantastic deal. Whether it’s early booking discounts, free group places or special deals on equipment hire, there’s a great range of deals to be enjoyed if you get in there quickly.

When choosing a Club Med Snow Holiday, you can enjoy early bird deals if you book early, plus enjoy discounts for your kids: little ones under 4 stay free in all ski resorts.

2. Low deposit

Booking early means that you’re able to spread the cost of your holiday over a number of months, helping you to budget for your next winter ski holiday. Club Med only requires a low deposit per person to reserve your holiday with the balance due 90 days before departure.

So, booking now means there’s plenty of time for you to stagger your payments or put aside a little each month so you don’t have to pay the full amount in one go. It’s also useful when booking for a large group, as you’ll have the time to collect the money from everyone before making the final payment.

3. Get the right accommodation for you

Do you want your own accommodation in a prime position on the mountain? Do you want it to be ski-in, ski-out? Do you want a hot tub to relax in after a hard day on the slopes? Make sure you get exactly the accommodation you want by booking early, especially if there’s a large group of you going. Give you, your family and your friends the best chance of a fantastic stay in Sahoro Hokkaido, Tomamu Hokkaido, Kiroro Peak, Les Arcs Panorama, Grand Massif Samoëns, Val Thorens or Valmorel by getting in before everyone else.

4. Peak season on the peaks

If you have children or can only go skiing during peak times of the year, you’ll want to make sure that you book early to get your favourite destination and have the best choice of accommodation and flights. Also, families travelling with kids will prefer to book interconnecting rooms which are generally sold-out if they leave it too late. Remember to book as early as possible!

5. And relax…

There’s nothing better than the feeling of everything being sorted out in advance for your winter ski adventure. It gives you plenty of time to dream about powder-white slopes. Plus, it gives you the chance to plan every aspect of your trip to ensure you have the best time ever. Runs, restaurants, bars, shops – the more you know about your resort and its ski domain, the better your trip will be. And if you’re celebrating a special occasion, why not book that exclusive restaurant early too?

The more you have sorted out in advance, the sooner you can sit back and look forward to your holiday.
