There are still plenty of offers for summer in the Alps – which makes a lovely alternative to a beach holiday for active people who fancy some hiking or mountain biking, golf, tennis or swimming in a crystal clear lake. And if you are thinking ahead to next winter, then have a look at our early booking deals, which include lift passes for as little as £1.
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.
