Ski hire prices compared
Our SKISET prices compared to other holiday companies
To illustrate just how good our online prices with SKISET are we have compared prices (November 2018). We have chosen as an example the price for our top level of adult skis & boots from the 'Excellence' category with Skiset for a 6 day hire in Val d’Isere during high season 2019.
Ski Total, Inghams and Ski Esprit all refer to their top level of equipment hire as their 'Black' category. Each of these holiday companies also uses SKISET as their ski hire provider and the equivalent SKISET category is actually the 'Performance' category, which offers inferior equipment compared to our top level.
High season prices for adult skis + boots for 6 days in Val d'Isere (February 2019):
- Alpine Answers (Excellence category): £139
- Ski Total 'Black' (Performance category): £156 (our price for the same level of equipment: £90)
- Inghams 'Black' (Performance category): £156 (our price for the same level of equipment: £90)
- Skiworld 'Platinum' (Excellence category): £166
- Mark Warner 'Superior' (Excellence category): £185
- Snowberry (new Advanced/Expert skis): £187
- SKISET website using our promo link: £193
- VIP Ski 'Gold' (Performance category): £201 (our price for the same equipment: £90)
- SKISET website without our promo link: £205
- SKISET 'walk-in' price - paying in resort: £241
- VIP Ski 'Platinum' (Excellence category): £256
Why the Alpine Answers prices are so good
Tour operators and holiday companies are offered very good special trade prices by SKISET (and other ski hire providers). They then choose their own prices to sell at, thereby making a profit margin. The higher the price they charge the greater that profit margin becomes. Making a large margin is how some ski holiday companies afford 2-4-1 deals on their ski hire.
As a 'thank you' to our clients for booking through us we pass on nearly all of the savings that our great trade prices give us. Our clients get the same great ski hire equipment as any other holiday company provides but enjoy very low prices. There is no catch.
