Self-Drive Ski Holidays

Self-Drive Ski Holidays 2020/2021

Have you ever considered packing up the car and setting off to the Alps on the road? This budget-friendly option is perfect for this season, enabling you to travel in your own personal space and not have to worry about luggage allowances or busy airport queues. A firm-favourite amongst families and groups, you could enjoy great value compared to the cost per person of booking a flight. What's more, once you arrive you can take advantage of the freedom granted by having your car with you - why not drive over into a neighbouring resort for a day's skiing or an evening meal?

Our self-drive ski holiday packages are usually paired with self-catered accommodation, making for one easy cost that can be split up between your party. Speak to our experts today to find out more about self-drive ski holiday packages.

Our handy guide covers some of the best ski resorts to consider when driving to the Alps. We have detailed the approximate distances of the journey from Calais, where your Eurotunnel or Ferry will drop you.

Self-catered chalets and apartments

We offer a wide selection of self-catered chalets and apartments that range from simple mountain bases in prime ski-in ski-out locations to luxurious pads with swimming pool and spa facilities.

Taking the Eurotunnel


Taking the Eurotunnel for your crossing into France means that you can enjoy motorway to motorway access and a choice of up to four departures per hour. As the fastest way to cross the channel by car, the Eurotunnel takes just 35 minutes, and passengers can remain within the comfort and privacy of their vehicle.

Our self-drive packages include a return Eurotunnel fare for four people in one standard sized car.
