News-Antique.com - Oct 01,2008 - Besides credit constraints, the two factors that will take the world of ski and snowboard by storm in the year 2009 are:
The first problem that hits the ski scenario is the ascending oil cost leading to lowering the capacity of the flights. The second factor is the whopping increase in the value of the Euro.
Worried airlines are hiking flight prices as with the mounting dollar cost of a barrel of oil, whereas the decreasing flight capacity is taking a toll on the prices as well.
If you are lucky enough to get yourself a well priced flight or ski holiday package this season, your next problem is that you are going to have to pay 20-25% (with inflation) more this year for your resort costs such as ski pass, ski lessons and ski hire. This could add £60 a head or £250 - £300 more to the cost of a family ski holiday, based on a party of 4.
This is why Alpine Elements is encouraging skiers to plan and book their holidays now. This shall help vacationers to capitalize on the existing reasonable ski holiday prices before extra charges are levied on oil and currency related issues.
Alpine Elements gives an assurance to the clients who have already booked that they will not be charged extra because of the increase in the airfuel or currency price on the base holiday packages. Also, if the customers book their Ski Extras in advance, then the price can also be fixed accordingly.
Those who will complete their bookings before October will benefit tremendously. They can get one of the best group discounts along with one of those flights of the season that are better priced. Not only this, they would surely get the chalet of their desire if bookings are made early.
Our advice is to simply book now, as we will no doubt see the last minute market squeezed by rising costs of airfuel, lessening flights availability and increasing costs of the euro. We are seeing demand especially high from keen skiers wanting high altitude snow this winter.
