Tour Overview

Value for Money:

Skiing is an expensive sport, particularly in Switzerland. We do as much as possible to reduce costs and are confident that we have obtained good value for money for flight, hotel accommodation and coach hire. Given the context of rising prices generally and the very disadvantageous exchange rate between the pound and the Swiss franc, we believe that this year’s trip is competitively priced given the world class resort and peak travelling time.

Booking: Booking is open until each trip is full. No minimum numbers are required. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Late bookings will incur a surcharge.

DBS: Please note that a DBS check will be required by the school for any parent staying in the hotel (Disclosure and Barring Service)

Deposits: A deposit of £500 is required for each ski trip on booking. The balance is payable before December 3rd 2017.

Delays: Should there be a delay in the outbound or inbound flights beyond the control of Smaug Abroad, recompense will be available only through your travel insurance.

Prices: Prices are subject to availability at the time of confirmation

Exchange rates: We reserve our right to apply a surcharge to cover a significant change in the exchange rate Sterling/Swiss Franc. Please see our Terms and Conditions.
