Why Ski Accommodation Only?


During the 2008/2009 season over a million of us had so called DIY ski holidays and short ski breaks. Organising your own DIY ski holiday requires booking flight, ski transfer, car hire and ski accommodation. Many ski holiday maker believe going DIY makes the ski holiday much cheaper. Booking flights, ski transfer or car hire online is easy. Finding the ski accommodation only (not packaged in a ski holiday deal) can often be a bigger challenge and a lot more time consuming. Why take the time and search for ski accommodation only if you can book a package ski holiday that includes all components?

Ski accommodation only is better?

There is an argument to be had, given that many low and mid market skiing package deals often come with poorly maintained and small ski apartment. It is common place to share a one bed apartment with small kitchen and pull out bed in living room between four people. Booking ski accommodation only from independent apartment and chalet owners gives you better control over what you get. Independent landlords are normally very keen on repeat bookings. As a result ski accommodation tend to be better maintained with more space and better features. However there are also a lot of quality ski packages out there, you just need to check ski accommodation standard at the point of sale.

Ski accommodation only works out cheaper?

Many ski holiday makers believe that ski package deals are more expensive than booking a cheap flight and your own accommodation. This is certainly not the case. When you book ski accommodation only you have to look at the total cost including flights, transfers, meals and extras such as ski passes, resort transfers and insurance. You will find package deals are often cheaper. However you can bargain with independent ski accommodation landlords and drive prices down especially during mid and low season.

Easy to find ski accommodation only?

Well, try to book your own ski accommodation for peak season! It is certainly true that there are hundreds of websites and portals offering ski accommodation. However looking through all the ski apartments and chalets advertised can be very time consuming. And once you found something you like and contact the agency or owner, the accommodation is no longer available. Don't underestimate the time investment required to find your own ski accommodation, especially when you try to book last minute.
