How to book a catered chalet holiday

September 13th, 2008

Useful tips from ehow.com:

When you book your ski chalet holiday, if you follow these steps, you are more likely to choose the best chalet in the best location…

Step1

Research where you want to go based on the ability/experience of your group. If you are all beginners, choose an area renowned for beginners. If you are all experts, go somewhere which offers extensive steep off piste opportunities.

Step2

Take time to talk to your group in order to understand everyone’s requirements. There is nothing more frustrating than booking a chalet for a group of 10, only to discover that the other nine members of your group aren’t happy with your efforts. Being the group leader can be a thankless task!

Step3

Once you’ve researched area and group requirements, visit some of the ski chalet property portals to locate a chalet which fit the bill. By booking direct with the owner, you cut out the middle man and save money.

Step4

Once you find a suitable looking property, make sure you get the full picture with regards to layout. Find out exactly how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, are the bathrooms private/en suite, are the bedrooms all of equal quality/size? It can be tricky if you turn up with your group who have all paid the same amount, and someone has to go in the small room under the eaves with no private bathroom!

Step5

Make sure you feedback your holiday requirements to your chalet hosts/owners, especially with regards to dietry requirements.

Step6

Finally, double check what is involved in the price. Especially look out for extra costs such as airport transfers, lift passes, ski hire etc.
