There are still good bargains to be found over the Christmas and New Year period (in fact, half of our deals are for this period). If you’re flying then don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak holiday periods whether in the summer or winter. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski viewers.
But you could also take the train instead of flying, which is relatively stress-free and certainly eco-friendly. Bookings for trains in France open on October 12 so we recommend taking a look at Snowcarbon’s Live Train Prices section, which accesses fares from rail-booking website Loco2.com, which in turn is a partner of Eurostar and SNCF. Fares shown on Live Train Prices – bookable on Loco2 – are the same as if going directly to Eurostar or SNCF websites.
