Term Time Travel.

There are several clear reasons for considering travel during term time if possible:

  • Wider choice of bigger resorts - the large resorts are keen to attract groups during low season and offer attractive packages.
  • The resorts are quieter - fewer lift queues and so more skiing!  It is also easier to supervise.
  • Peak times are always the same as European holidays with higher prices to match.  There are some great low season deals.
  • By taking a low season holiday we can build in staff cover - about £40 to £50 per head - just ask!!
