First Choice, one of Britain's five leading ski tour operators and part of the country's largest ski company - TUI, has announced significant savings on all-inclusive ski holiday packages to Andorra on selected dates.
The special deals, branded as First Choice Winter Savers, are available at three- or four-star properties on all departures commencing in January as well as departures from the UK on Mar. 13-14 or Mar. 20-21.
The deal includes a local lift pass, rental of skis and ski boots (or board and snowboarding boots) or ski carriage on the plane if you have your own equipment, as well as the usual flights, transfers, and accommodation.
In Andorra the offer is available at the Poblado Apartments in Arinsal, part of the VallNord ski area shared with Pal and Arcalis. Although the apartments are self-catering, the deal includes breakfast in this case.
The deal is based on flights from Gatwick, but First Choice fly from 17 UK airports in total, including Belfast City, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Doncaster/Sheffield, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Heathrow, Leeds/Bradford, Luton, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted.
The company is offering similar deals to selected properties in Bulgaria, France, Italy and Slovenia, but the Andorran property is the cheapest of all.
First Choice is also offering its most expensive all-inclusive package to Andorra too; the deal features half-board accommodation at the slope-side Sport Hotel in Soldeu for £759. The Sport Hotel is linked to Andorra's most prestigious hotel, the five-star Hermitage, next door with its popular spa.
