The most "frequently asked questions" are about choosing the "Best Resort" for .......?
You can see our personal recommendations on the BEST RESORTS page.
amongst other most frequent questions are
Q. How do I get from airport to/from the resort?
A. For a short break many customers chose to collect a hire car at the airport. Even if you only use it for travel to/from the resort it gives you more freedom and flexibility. It's often the best value for 2-4 persons and there's no waiting on other travellers at the airport. For arrivals at Geneva, Zurich, and Basel cars come with free snow tyres, free snow chains and Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance. For arrival at other airports we book snow chains for you to pay for locally and at most airports snow tyres will also be provided - although in some countries there will also be a charge to pay locally. CDW insurance is always included.
Q. I don't want a rental car, what other options are there?
A. From Geneva you can have a shared shuttle to most French resorts within 2 hours of the airport. Private transfers are possible to all resorts from any airport (although they are the most expensive option - especially for 2-4 persons)
Rail tickets are available to all Swiss resorts and some Austrian resorts, direct from the airport at Geneva, Zurich & Basel .
Q. Can I book equipment in advance?
A. Yes - and you'll get a discount of up to 40% if you use this link http://www.skiset.co.uk/partner/whiteroc
Q. Can I book ski passes in advance?
A. Some resorts have a facility for booking ski passes online in advance - but generally there's no advantage for small numbers as you still need to collect them when you arrive and it's just as quick to organise at the lift pass office when you are there. However, in some Swiss resorts and Austrian resorts the hotels have the facility to print your ski pass in the hotel.
For large groups of 10 or more we can help book skis passes in advance.
Please consult us for more information about ski passes.
Q. Do I need winter sports insurance and do you sell it?
A. Yes - you need it and No we don't sell it - because you have to be trained and registered to sell insurance. But, we have an arrangement for a 10% discount for our customers with the Ski Club of Great Britain when you buy their insurance.
See skiclubinsurance.co.uk or call them on 0300 303 2610 and use promo code WHRC10 for your 10% discount
