Ski holidays for students – cost-effective and flexible

17/04/2019 - SnowTrex

Sometimes it is not so easy for students to have access to the snow. When you’re raring to go, it’s usually the exams or the account balance that spoil your fun – often both – but you don’t have to submit to your destiny that easily. The following tips show how students can spend a few action-packed days on the mountain despite small budgets and exams.

Semester break at last? Off to your skiing holiday!

Be flexibile

Even if as a student you are not one of the top earners, you should not be deterred from going on a ski holiday. Yes, ski holidays are not always cheap, but clever students have an ace up their sleeve: They are flexible in terms of time. Ski trips for students have the decisive advantage that they can also be booked at short notice. This way, you can often benefit from Last-Minute offers with great discounts! Although, even students who like to plan long-term have time on their side. The semester break offers enough time for ski trips outside the high season. Not only does this save money, but the ski areas are not as crowded as during peak season. The selection is also not too slim – with SnowTrex, you can choose from over 2,000 accommodations!

Travel as a group and share costs

There are also many other ways for a student to keep the cost of a skiing holiday as low as possible. With groups of five to ten people, many apartments and chalets can usually be booked at reasonable prices. Probably the best and most money-saving aspect of apartments and chalets is self-catering. A small kitchenette is usually part of the standard furnishings, so that everything you need can be bought comfortably and cheaply from the discount store around the corner and brought with you. This way, the costs can be calculated in advance and you can even enjoy your favourite brew in resort. Those who treat themselves to something extra at the hut do so “because they can”.

Clever students also makes sure that the car is used effectively down to the last cubic centimetre. Shared fuel costs are low fuel costs and therefore desirable! The train also regularly offers cheap tickets within Germany.

Chalets and apartments are a sociable place to live.

Saving made easy

With SnowTrex, you will also regularly find worthwhile deals and promotions. For example, the Crazy Booking Nights take place particularly before the start and at the end of the season. During this time, select offers are highly discounted. They do not have fixed dates and when they do take place, it is always decided on short notice. Therefore, it is recommended to stay up-to-date through social media or with the SnowTrex newsletter. A one-week ski holiday including lift pass for less than 100 Euros is impossible? Not at all! With a little luck, you can score a real bargain here! Also, on the Last-Minute page, you can find real value for money, so it’s well worth stopping by!

If you recommend SnowTrex to your friends, you will also benefit from the SnowTrex Refer a Friend Programme, and if you are particularly good at recommending SnowTrex to your friends, you should also consider becoming an active SnowTrex promoter and earning additional benefits.

When the price goes down, the mood goes up among students.

Action-packed events await

Students who are looking for fun not only on the mountain, but also off the slopes, there are some great events to discover! Winter is the festival season at lofty heights and the party strongholds are full of fun, especially at the beginning and end of the season. Be it the “Top of the Mountain Concert” in Ischgl, the “WOW! Glacier Love Festival” in Zell am See-Kaprun or the “PowderWeek” of SnowTrex in Les 2 Alpes, France: the list of events is growing from year to year. Boredom is guaranteed to be a thing of the past!
