Dedicated Tour Coordinators
Once you have confirmed your booking with us, you will be assigned a dedicated tour coordinator who will handle all the pre-tour administration of your school ski trip. Your personal tour coordinator will be your main point of contact and is on hand to discuss, or answer, any queries regarding the finer details of your trip; such as flights, coaches, rooming, ski lessons, evening entertainment options.
They will be able to provide your group with all the ‘added extras’ that will make your school ski trip that extra bit special – from pre-booking evening entertainments to organising tour hoodies. Detail is key and the role of your tour coordinator is to ensure that everything is addressed before you depart the UK, ensuring that you have a stress-free experience whilst in resort.
