What’s Been Happening at Snowcompare
It’s been a little while since our last blog post, and we apologise about that. The truth is that we’ve just not been that sure what to write. The world has changed and the world of travel has certainly changed. We missed a whole ski season, and while there are certainly more important things going on right now – the ski travel industry supports a lot of full and part-time staff who have needed assistance during this time.
We’ve also been making sure that anyone who booked their ski transfers through Snowcompare.com for the 2020/21 season has been kept fully informed of what is happening, and has been refunded or rebooked for their journeys. It’s was incredibly disappointing to not be able to transport any of our amazing customers last winter but we still did the best we could considering the circumstances and the constantly moving goalposts.
It’s not all doom and gloom these days though – it looks very likely that the UK will be able to return to its ‘new normal’ on 19th July, and that is good news for travellers – even though we are still waiting on the confirmation of how this will affect international travel. It certainly seems as if those people with double vaccinations will be able to travel – and that by December all adults who want to be vaccinated will have been.
For us this is a real positive situation and we are preparing as we normally would for a full winter ski season in 2021/22. Some of our smaller partners have made the difficult decision to stop trading, but we still have plenty of great companies working with us this year. Transfer services are available to book right now. You can secure bookings with a deposit, and each partner’s T&Cs regarding changes and cancellations are available to view on their profile pages at anytime before, during or after booking.
We genuinely believe that this is the winter where all us skiers and snowboarders will be able to enjoy a holiday again. Everyone in the industry needs for this to be a bumper year for bookings, and we definitely hope it will live up to that. Certainly, if you are planning to travel on a busy week this year it is recommended to book your airport to ski transfer nice and early in order to avoid disappointment. Luckily, Snowcompare.com is here to help you find and book the cheapest airport to ski resort transfers available from reliable and reputable partners.
