It might seem early to start talking about Christmas, and in certain contexts, we agree. For example… shops should not be selling mince pies just yet. In fact any Christmas foods that are sold with a pre-Christmas expiry date, are a total NO-NO. But when it comes to booking your Christmas holiday, the time could not be better.
The reason for our view on this matter (which you might think is bias!) is that there are a million and one benefits to booking your ski chalet or hotel early and not many reasons to delay it. The key reasons might seem obvious but are always worth a reminder:
- Much more availability & choice of properties, hotel rooms & resorts
- Increased travel options and lower prices
- MUCH less risk of ski schools, instructors, nannies & drivers being booked up
- One less weight off you mind in the run up to Christmas – always helpful!
- And because it’s Christmas, many chalet owners and operators offer wonderful complimentary services!
That last one might have piqued your interest in particular. And if so, we would love to talk through the many options at your fingertips at this time of year. But below is a taster of a few fantastically generous offers just waiting to be taken advantage of.
