Skiing enthusiasts heading for European slopes are being advised to book their breaks now for the coming season according to HomeAway.co.uk
The UK’s leading holiday rentals website predicts many people will be planning early winter or Christmas skiing breaks due to 2014’s very late Easter
To make it easier than ever before for early birds to book their skiing holiday, HomeAway.co.uk has thousands of properties in European ski resorts that can now be booked safely online with just one click. With over 42,800 ski chalets in Europe to choose from, skiers can find and secure their ideal accommodation within 24 hours without the need for enquiry.
Whilst resorts in Eastern Europe are still popular for good value and quieter slopes, destinations such as Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland also offer plenty of choice for a cost-effective break for all age groups budgets, skiing abilities and parties. The tiny principality of Andorra with its excellent nursery slopes and family friendly facilities is also increasing in popularity among those looking for good value skiing for all ages and abilities.
From five star chalets on the snow-covered Swiss and French Alps to chic apartments overlooking Austrian lakes, HomeAway.co.uk lists a fantastic range of flexible properties that are bookable online across the price range and close to first class ski and snowboarding facilities. Many also offer an excellent variety of off-piste activities for the less dedicated winter sports enthusiast.
Erica Chang, Regional Director of HomeAway.co.uk, says, “Easter is traditionally a busy time for families to hit the slopes but in 2014 Easter Sunday falls on April 20th - too late for snow in all but the highest European ski resorts. This means many families will be planning early winter, Christmas or February half term ski breaks instead so now is a great time to book before the rush really starts.”
“With our online booking facility booking a skiing holiday has never been easier. People can check out the resorts, find the accommodation that will work for them, then simply click and secure their booking in minutes.” she added.
