*10% off for Kids in All Chalets (Shared chalets only)

Skiworld is one of the very few tour operators to offer your children aged 2 - 11 years (who are not already enjoying a half-price place) an automatic 10% discount (except peak dates when the discount is 5%) when you stay in ANY of our shared chalets.

*Half Price Places for Children and Discounts for Extra Adults (Shared chalets only)

Discounts for children - We offer 50% off for children aged between 2 and 11 years, when they share with their parent(s) in many of our shared chalets across Europe. This offer is valid all season including school holidays, except for sales and late availability offers as these are already heavily discounted. Places are based on a first come first served basis so early booking is highly recommended.
See our chalets that offer 50% off for children.

Discounts for adults - If a third adult stays in a room that has an extra bed then this bed would be discounted in a shared chalet.
See our chalets that offer discounts on extra beds for adults.

* NB These discounts do not apply to chalets only available as Whole Chalet Bookings for the 21/22 season.

Discount Example 

Here is an example of a half-priced bed where the room would be filled with two adults, and then the final bed would be filled with a child, priced at half the price of an adult. You'll find chalets below where we have this offer, and if you'd like some more help understanding how it works, or help with booking, then please give us a call on 0330 102 8004.

Example of a half price bed for children


Our all-inclusive ski deals offer maximum value for money with minimum hassle. You pay one amount for your entire ski holiday. This includes lift passes, ski hire and ski carriage. As well as being easier, it’s also cheaper than buying all the components separately too. We offer big discounts with up to £261pp OFF when you buy Ski-All-In. See below for more info.

*Early Booking Group Discounts 

If you're travelling in a group of 6 or more then you might qualify for our group discount. This is currently a saving of £50pp or more which quickly adds up if there are a few of you (i.e. a group of 6 booking an entire chalet provides a saving of £300). To get this group discount you need to book an entire chalet, and with our chalets starting from as small as 6 people we have a good range to suit different family sizes.

What to Consider for a Family Ski Holiday

When looking to book your family ski trip, finding the right option can seem daunting with so many options available. However, with the help of our knowledgeable Ski Specialists, you can have peace of mind, as they’ll be on hand to help you every step of the way. They can help recommend the best ski resort for you, what accommodation will suit your needs and even what level ski lessons you may want.

Here are some of the main things to think about when planning your family ski holiday:

  • Travel Time – Early morning flights and resorts with long transfer times may not be best for little ones. But there are lots of resorts that offer short transfer times which may be the best for your family.
  • Choice of Resort – You should think about the skiing abilities in your family, and go somewhere that also has the right mix of activities off the slopes.
  • Choice of AccommodationSelf-catered apartments give greater flexibility for your family, but our catered chalets mean you'll get 6 days of meals included. So which is best for you? Also being really close to the piste or lift, ski school, or ski hire shop may be top of your priorities.
  • Self Drive Ski Holidays - If you prefer to drive from the UK to the ski resort this is also possible. Our packages include Eurostar crossings as well as accommodation.
  • Childcare – Will you need childcare or ski school during your trip?
  • Room Configurations – Will you need family rooms, or are the kids older and require their own?
  • Non-Ski Activities - As well as skiing it's nice to visit a resort that also has a great selection of non-ski activities too. This might include tobogganing, snowshoeing, fat biking, you name it.

Best Time to Go on a Family Ski Holiday


Christmas in the snow is what every kid dreams of and we pull out the stops to make sure that the whole family has a magical time. A Christmas chalet holiday comes with a huge bundle of complimentary festive extras, and added to the fact that all the cooking and washing up will be done for you... it really is a holiday for the whole family. For more details of what's included see our Christmas Ski Deals page.

New Year 

Get away from all the craziness of New Year and spend some quality time with the family in a wintery alpine retreat. Like Christmas, there are many additional extras to help make this ski holiday a special experience. You'll also have all the home comforts but without all the household chores, as they'll be a team on hand to cook and clean for you. Find out more about seeing in the new year and what is on offer on our New Year Ski Deals page.

Half Term
February half term is historically one of the most popular times to take the whole family skiing. We can't think of a better way to keep the kids entertained and it's a great way to give everyone a break. Historically snow conditions are great and the resorts are in full swing at this time of year. To discover the best elements view our Half Term Ski Deals.


Easter is often a popular choice for family ski holidays, as it typically offers warmer weather which can provide a more pleasant environment for young children and new skiers alike. An Easter ski trip is often blessed by late snowfalls too, so you can enjoy fresh snow and warm afternoons. For kids, we also throw an Easter egg hunt... just to make sure they don't feel like they are missing out on any chocolate. If you're interested to know more about a fair-weather ski trip, view our Easter Ski Deals page.

Childcare and Private Nanny Service

You are never too young to enjoy a ski holiday! Many of our resorts have local crèche facilities and most have pre-ski school kindergartens (which usually require a vaccination certificate).

We are delighted to offer a private nanny service in partnership with T4 Nannies in Val d’Isère, Tignes, La Plagne, La Rosiere, Courchevel and Meribel.

Ski resorts are magical places for children and T4 nannies offer fun, flexible and top-notch childcare. Unlike other nanny services, they hand-pick their nannies and hire them for the full season, so they personally know and trust the people who will be looking after your children. All their nannies are CRB checked, first aid trained and come with glowing references. Find out more about T4 Nannies.
