As we see every year, the chalets representing the best value get snapped up early. The end of August is when we see a steep increase in bookings, so this is when the most in-demand properties start selling out for the peak weeks of the upcoming season.
By getting your booking in ahead of the crowds, you will always find more to choose from, and as such are much more likely to get a perfect match for your specific group make-up and unique needs.
Rupert Longsdon, our Founding Director tells us:
"Last minute booking means more compromises will need to be made across the board on the standard and service levels. From our many years of experience we often find those clients who booked last minute tell us on return they wish they had booked earlier.
Got a long list of items on your To Do List? Well, this is one less thing to worry about!
Whether you’re booking your next trip to the mountains from a deckchair in a sunny destination (booked through our summery sister, Oxford Private Travel), or just looking to clear your Inbox, you can get ahead of the game and sort your ski trip now, while availability is good, then all you need worry about come winter, is having a chat with our uber-efficient concierge team to book in the finer arrangements of your trip. All the while, you are safe in the knowledge that your accommodation and travel are sorted and confirmed.
Furthermore, with a consistently good rate on your Sterling to Euro exchange, you will see the economic benefit immediately on the accommodation cost."
