Do you dislike flying, or find it way too expensive? For the 2018-2019 ski season why not drive from the UK to a resort with our self-drive ski holidays. This allows you to save hundreds on the cost per person vs flying. It also allows you to take as much luggage as you want which is perfect for families and groups.

 

Below you'll find prices for our self-drive packages which start from only £166 per person. This includes your accommodation for a week as well as tickets for the Eurotunnel. Once you've crossed the English Channel your drive to a ski resort in France will take roughly 8-10 hours from Calais.
