Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Heads up re booking.

My flight with EJ fm Bristol to Salzburg 10/12 has been cancelled. This isnt looking good already for next winter.


@jafa

I was looking at that flight a few weeks ago and it was showing as "sold out" so can't see the logic in cancelling it. Seems to me that all airlines are advertising cheaper flights to tempt folk to book, only then to cancel & try to get them to re-book onto a more expensive / less convenient flight

FFS, Airlines at the moment are certainly not covering themselves with glory.

my daughters squeezyjet return flight from tenerife in a couple of weeks time has just been moved from departing friday 10pm to gatwick (where she flies out from) to friday 11am to luton, so not only does she lose a day on the beach/pool for her short break, she also has to get home from luton instead of gatwick.
i had just been looking into sorting out her airport parking for her, but now she is going to have to get a train from Bath-Gatwick then Luton-Bath. i know it is not the end of the world, but if i had booked the parking "free cancellation" normally means a voucher for another time.

me and my daughters have a short break coming soon and are due to fly with squeezy, ski flights carried over from the last couple of years, from Gatwick to Rome in august, and am getting concerned that there will be some kind of cancellation/change of flight as i have airport parking booked already.

it certainly backs up my view that self driving to ski resorts with families is still the easiest way to go, though that obviously depends on the resort location!!!

When an EJ flight is showing as sold out it generally means there’s something wrong
It looks like they are starting the Bristol flight a week later
Friends of ours only booked the 10/12 flight a couple of weeks ago and it was cheap as chips so I suspect they chopped it due to lack of seats being filled

Looks like they are at it again, this time with a new Bristol - Innsbruck return flight just posted

https://www.easyjet.com/en/buy/flights?isOneWay=off&pid=www.easyjet.com

Massive difference in the cost of the new flight outbound on Wednesday 14/12 & return Wednesday 21/12 in comparison with the existing flight costs outbound on Friday 16 Dec & return on Friday 23 Dec.

The cynic in me says that they will cancel the cheaper flights and load everyone onto the more expensive flight once they receive sufficient bookings

Well boys and girls, good news for a change.

I got an e mail from EJ on the 17th June informing me that my flight was cancelled. This was a flight that I had already moved three times. Twice I paid extra, once there was no charge.

I just happened to look at my credit card statement this morning, not expecting to see anything, but within 24 hours, re credited, the initial charge, plus the two extra ones. 24hrs FFS. Thats fantastic response.

Big chuck up to EJ

Credit where credits due. Yes I have to re arrange travel, but honestly atm we are happier driving, so no complains re this actual cancellation personally. I know not everyone has the flexibility we have but well happy.

I've just got a request through from the rental agency we use to let out our apartment asking what weeks we want to make it available next season. The interesting thing is that the weekly price for letting out including the Christmas week is much higher than the New Year price and higher than 2 of the 4 weeks of half term. From this I deduce that they are expecting the Christmas week to be very busy this year and New Year quiet.

Just booked Easyjet LGW/GVA for Jan 2023. I noticed that Swiss were also operating a daily flight LGW/GVA, outbound was £46 but inbound was £146 so not sure how that pricing came about for a flight seven months away.

Woohoo! I can add to this thread! A cheeky 5 day pre-Christmas break booked to Flaine via Sunweb for £359 pp inc lift pass, once I spotted it I couldn't not book it. Sideways_Jnr will either be really annoyed or really excited he's going to be sitting in a car for hours on his turning into a teenager birthday but am sure he'll get over it.

Is there some reason you name the two extreme ends of the Tarrentaise ski area? To get to Val Thorens you actually have to drive through St Martin de Belleville and Les Menuires. TBH if I was driving to the 3 valleys from Bourg st Maurice I'd park up in Courchevel 1300. Or if I was really keen all the way up the valley to Pralognan en Vanoise

Not really ..I was in Moutiers last season and we went there ..at the end of March S M d B was a bit low and Courcheval was waterskiing so you are probably right we could park at S M d B ..I like Val Thorens though ..who knows where we will get to!

Booked flights to Munich for Easter, with a view to heading into Austria. Lufthansa wanted £900 per person! Had to use easyJet, who were considerably cheaper.

Yes saw that we booked shortly after they released them and they were really cheap then, guess they have sold a lot of seats!

On the book early front. Book car hire now. Expedia, through Quidco. I have paid £184 for days for standard estate. That was Alamo.

I am watching Sunweb waiting for the accommodation I am hoping to book, as it hasnt been released yet

if you were going to drive and park, then you would probably be better off parking in les menuires, loads of free parking close to lifts and more options to return to your car from the slopes.
i would recommend the preyerand area (other areas are available Toofy Grin Toofy Grin ) easy to jump straight on to the slopes from there.

Yep, 3 trips booked and all DIY: big family gathering booked over Christmas (Les Menuires); Feb half term with just my daughter (La Plagne - nostalgic trip); 1st week Easter hols with daughter (and possibly husband, dog and son) in Val Thorens. And - if I can swing it - a week by myself at short notice anywhere the snow is good, but suspect this may lead to a revolt in the family Very Happy
