It’s not always easy to afford great getaways when you’ve got a family to feed, but it’s certainly not impossible. Skiing has to be up there as one of the best holiday experiences you can have, and whether you go as a group or a family, it’s something you have to do at least once.
Skiing might sound expensive, but if you’re a savvy money-saver, you can consider it booked. As one of Europe’s best-kept skiing secrets, Andorra is the perfect destination to enjoy an affordable skiing holiday.Take a look at some useful tips to plan an affordable ski trip to Andorra.
Book early to get the best deals
Booking early is a must for securing the best skiing deals. If you leave it until the ski season itself, you’ll get stung for higher flight prices and pricier accommodation versus booking now. Bag yourself a good deal on getting to Andorra with some essential flight-booking hacks and get the ball rolling.
Travel with a group for cheaper accommodation
Chalets and large apartments are a fantastic option for groups looking to get away together. Booking group accommodation can work out to be much more affordable than hotel bookings, and can be a better way to spend your time on the slopes. Group travel is ideal if you have children, as you can all take it in turns to babysit while other parents hit the slopes. Enjoy luxury Airbnb options right on the slopes, with all the comforts you need for the perfect getaway.
Make the most of lift pass offers
Andorra is known for having some of the most affordable lift passes in Europe. A Grandvalira lift pass can be around €50 a day, and even cheaper if you book in advance. Many lift passes will include equipment hire and other extras such as lunch, giving you a great value option to enjoy a day on the snow. Booking online will give you peace of mind, so make sure you book before you go instead of leaving it until the last minute. Remember to book skiing lessons too if you need them, and these will be more affordable if you book a block of several lessons.
