Thinking about your next ski vacation? Early birds really do get the worm here. Here’s how you can save money, stress less and get the best by booking early.

Thanks to the early bird, you can save money by booking your ski resort at the best price! All that remains is to choose the destination!
2. Best accommodation options: take your pick
Booking early means getting what you want. The sooner you book, more choice you’ll get: Residences near the slopes, apartments with view… Or you can wait last minute and take what’s left. It doesn’t sound like the best option, as all the best places for location, facilities and specials rates tend to be booked out early !
3. Nursery or ski school places
We know very well that you love your children, but you also need time to browse all the slopes of your ski resort by yourself. That’s why, if you want to fulfill this guilty pleasure, you should book as soon as possible and get places for your children. Especially around Christmas and school holidays as this can be on a request bases.
4. Less stress
Booking early (and trough a travel company!) will secured your plan and reduce your stress. Everything will be planned upstream, and you don’t need to worry about last minute issues, because the whole trip is planned from A to Z for months.

7. Maximise your travel buddy recruitment time
The sooner you book, the more time you have to convince your friends to join the squad. There’s nothing worse than missing an adventure with your mates simply because it was too last minute for things to fall into place. It’ll also give them more time to accommodate to the initial plan (finding their accommodation, etc.).
