BANSKO in #Bulgaria offers the best value #ski break for British families this season, according to TripAdvisor’s cost comparison study of 42 destinations.
A week on the slopes of Bansko, including hotel, ski passes, ski hire, ski lessons, evening meals, and drinks for a family of four will cost £1,279, nearly four times less than the price of a comparable break in the most expensive destination, Switzerland’s Zermatt, which costs £4,809.
Not only has Bansko retained its position as Europe’s least expensive ski since last year’s TripIndex Ski study, overall costs for a break there have fallen by £352 since last year. By contrast, Zermatt has jumped three places from last year to knock Austria’s St. Anton off the top of the most expensive list.
Bansko and Eastern Europe in general are revealed as offering the best value for ski travellers this year. The region has three of the top six cheapest destinations: Bansko, Bulgaria; Sochi, Russia; and Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. Looking at a country level, Andorra has the most entries in the top ten best value list, laying claim to three resorts. Switzerland is the costliest country in which to ski; it has half of the ten most expensive resorts.
Sochi in Russia is revealed as the cheapest place to grab a bite to eat in this year’s study, with dinner for four over seven days costing just £105, compared with £762 in Verbier.
Swiss ski resorts have been some of the most expensive for the past four ski seasons, but the 2015/2016 season looks set to be pricier still for Brits, thanks largely to the increased strength of the Swiss Franc.
