We all like having something to look forward to, but there are certainly advantages of booking a last minute ski holiday. At some point, we have all wondered if last minute holidays are worth the hype. It doesn’t have to mean that you book today and leave tomorrow. Sunweb, Ski Club’s flagship partner for Winter 2018/19 considers all holidays departing within 4 weeks a last minute deal. That leaves plenty of time to plan yet still remain spontaneous.

Sunweb, who has been voted the World’s Best Tour Operator, is offering a staggering -30% off on their last minute deals. Pack your skis and go! 


5 Tips for the most out of your last-minute skiing holiday

1. Let the snow decide

Look at the weather forecast & snow reports and let the snowfall decide. With Sunweb Snowdeals, you will get the best snow for the lowest price. If you are looking for a really good deal, you might find that a smaller resort has fantastic conditions. This means that you can try something new, avoid the crowds and enjoy a holiday of a lifetime while perfecting your technique.

2. The spontaneous friend.
Remember that friend who was bragging about their fantastic “flex-schedule” at the office? Give them a call and get them involved, because this is their moment to shine. Booking last minute holidays can be tricky to plan with family and work commitments. Sometimes, it may be easier to leave the family at home and take a friend instead.

3. Challenge your expectations
Getting the best deal may mean trying something different. If you are used to chalet-style holidays in France, the best deal may be an Austrian B&B. Thinking outside of the box and broadening your horizons is the best thing you can do when researching last-minute holiday deals. Once you have decided on your basic requirements such as departure airport and half board or self-catering, let the prices decide. By sorting by price, you will find the best deal for the lowest price. 

4. Think…. again! 
Last-minute deals can be so good – you may be able to afford that second or third trip that you never thought possible. Who says you only get to go skiing once a year?

5. Read the small print
Avoid unexpected extra costs and go for an all-inclusive package and this time we are not referring to food and drinks. Book a package including a lift pass and all travel arrangements. This is probably one of the best ways to keep the costs down on a last-minute holiday. For example, you can book a package holiday with Sunweb, including everything. If you book a flights package to France, they will even throw in free ski material for free.

Leave the rain behind and enjoy the buzz you will get from doing something spontaneous for a change. There is nothing better than getting a group together and heading to the mountains. Take advantage of the discounts of up to 30% and escape to the mountains for less. Lift passes are always included. Use your Ski Club discount and save an additional 5%.
