Best Package Holidays for Solo and Single Skiers

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

What ski specialists can you use to book a package solo ski holiday?


Right now the UK Ski holiday market sits around 50:50 to book a package or self-build ski holiday, with Solo’s tending to choose self-build more often.


Why is that?

It's a no-brainer, an all inclusive package is the quickest and easiest way to book, and a lot of people would pay for this convenience if they could. However, not all operators have thought through the individual skier experience, making it just as much of a pain to book through them as it is to self build.

However, if you're set on booking your own holiday, read on...


Here we’ve looked at some of the top online ski-tour operators and rated them on how easy it is to buy an off-the-shelf ski holiday (ideally without having to interact with another human, as the trend is now days)


The key things I am thinking about are

  • Can you search for 1 person holidays in the first place?

  • Are you shown the full price for 1 person straight away (True per person pricing)

  • How many options are there?


Ski Packages for Singles

(Travel + Accommodation + Extras)

Ranked Highest -> Lowest


WeSki

Online only non-traditional tour operator

Good all-in pricing options (can include Passes, equipment, Transfer etc)

Flexible departures & duration

1 person search

Lots of choice & UX that gives you resort information to inform choice within search

Cons: Have to choose a resort to browse


Sunweb

Online only non-traditional tour operator

Lift pass often included in price

Flexible departures & duration

1 person search

True per person pricing in search

Lots of choice


Heidi

Lots of choice


Iglu Ski

Travel + Accommodation

True per person pricing in search

Lots of choice

Solos page doesn’t do it justice

Suggest Club Med first of all

Then list some accommodation options with no further context

Select one of them - all based on pp sharing

We recommend you search via the home page


Crystal Ski

Travel + Accommodation

Solos page give suggestions and also options with true single person pricing

True per person pricing in search


Inghams

Travel + Accommodation

Shows one person pricing for hotels / B&Bs

For apartments it displays per person in search, so you have to click through to booking to see the under-occupancy charges add up to.


Ski World

Suggests shared catered ski chalets

Clicking through to their suggested accommodation still sends you to a page with a search that has 2 people sharing as default

But does do actual 1 person pricing when you use the search


Sno

Travel + Accommodation

Lists single person pricing holidays on the page

Able to filter

Major con: Can’t book online


Ski Line

Travel + Accommodation

No single person pricing on the search - all holidays pp based on full occupancy and you have to enquire.


Neilson

Travel + Accommodation

Gives you one suggestion

Search does give you true single person pricing

Options only seem to be limited - 4 results


Mark Warner Holidays

Suggests their chalet hotels (2 options)

Very limited suggestions

Chalet hotels do offer a slightly more intimate experience depending on their size


Ski Solutions

Doesn’t even have a 1 person search function

All options at the bottom of the page are based on 2 people sharing? Have to enquire for anything


Snow finders

Quite bizarre set up - can’t search by number of people

Then shows pricing pp based on sharing


Club Med

Dedicated page talks about solo skiing but doesn't give options

Very confusing site

Can’t just search for skiing holiday packages?

Seem to have to go on each resort / property in turn?

Does give true pp pricing when you look at an individual property



 

Are there any we missed? Can we just not use a website? Have things changed? Let us know in the comments below.
