It's only August, and many people are yet to jet off on their summer holidays - But interest in ski trips for the 2018/19 season is already on the increase. So when is the best time of year to book a ski holiday?
As with almost all travel, the sooner you get things booked, the better! Whilst the demand is still relatively low, prices are yet to be increased so you're far more likely to get the best possible availability and prices. Ski destinations are always extremely busy throughout the season, so booking something too last minute can leave you disappointed - as well as prices being much higher due to the high demand.
Private jets are very popular for ski holidays, and you can read more about why Here. When travelling to the Alps for a skiing trip, the most popular airports for private jet charter include Chambery, Samedan, Courchevel, Sion and Geneva, several of which are also used for commercial flights - so it's easy to imagine how busy these airports become during the winter months.
Whilst private jets are far more flexible than commercial flights, and you are able to book these at much shorter notice, getting your travel sorted early still has its benefits! When flying by private jet into or out of a busy airport, your private jet requires a slot to take off or land, as well as space on the ground for the aircraft to park. As the ski season gets closer, operators of private jets may also start to increase their pricing due to higher demand for their aircraft.
