Avoid the potential hassles of public transport, take an extra day, and drive to the Alps this winter?
Ski drive may see a significant increase this season, what with the extra hassles associated with airline travel, and the Eurostar ski train service cancelled.
If you’re an enthusiastic and confident driver, with a car you can rely on and, even better, with a confident second driver, then you should at least think about driving to the Alps. It can and should be a fun and relaxing way to travel, especially if you give yourself an extra day to get to your resort, and it also often works out to be a lot cheaper than flying, depending on when you’re travelling, and whether you’ve booked your flight early or late.
Many families travel by car so they can take advantage of significantly cheaper accommodation in towns or villages outside the main resort. Others might use their car to ski at neighbouring resorts with better snow.
