Here's a heads up for those wanting to travel by Eurostar + TGV: Indirect trains to ski resorts early this winter are now on sale. UPDATED



What's news?

OUI.sncf has out its TGV trains on sale.

That means we can now book ski travel for holidays to the Alps from 9th December up until 7th January 2019, travelling by Eurostar + TGV from the UK.

High speed train journeys can be a far more enjoyable way to travel than flying.

A man in the know, founder of Snowcarbon, Daniel Elkan has come to us with the first question answered for those thinking of travelling to the Alps by train this winter.

What kind of prices can you expect for these journeys?

Well, if your holiday is at Xmas or New Year, expect to pay around £225 - £350 return per adult from London to the Alps.

If your journey is on an offpeak date, then probably £120 - £150 return per adult.

Children aged 4-11 get about 30% off these prices.

Here is Daniel's advice on how to save money by skiing in the best place and booking the best transport:
Train travel is PlanetSKI's favourite way to travel to the ski slopes:
  • It's less stress
  • You can take more luggage
  • Avoid tedious (and expensive) transfers
  • Avoid long drives
  • No airport queues or extra charges
  • It makes for an all round better travel day
You are en route to skiing and on holiday after all.
