Awesome, easy to use service

This is the first time I have used Snowcompare, but it definitely won’t be the last. The website was very easy to use and I was very happy with the price and variety of options presented to me. It was then really straightforward to select my preferred option and book my transfer. Perfect!

100% recommended

Brilliant service from Dave at Snowcompare. I had an issue while booking online which I emailed about and got an immediate reply to totally resolve the issue very quickly and efficiently. I really liked the fact that there’s a specific person to contact rather than just a general email address, and so impressed with Dave’s communication and quick response. Not to mention, it was the cheapest price I could find online for the transfer I was looking for. Would certainly use again.
