Pierre & Vacances has launched new packages, with flights and transfers, to a selection of its most popular destinations in Spain, Croatia, Andorra and France, including the Alps. Holidaymakers can now book their accommodation, transport, meals and extra packages all in one go and make the most of Pierre & Vacances’ flexible package options.
Skiers heading to the Alps can choose to fly from London, Birmingham or Manchester, to Lyon, Chambéry, Geneva or Grenoble. From there, they can access the best resorts in the French Alps with the transfer services provided by Pierre & Vacances.
Over the past few years, Pierre & Vacances – the leading provider of self-catered accommodation in the French Alps – has strived to make holidays more adaptable for its guests. Already offering flexible arrival dates and durations to varying catering packages, the new transport options will make it even easier for skiers to work their holiday around their schedules and budgets.
The booking process is simple: the residences that are available with flights are clearly marked with an aeroplane icon and, after selecting the desired dates and departure city, a flight option will be displayed, followed by a list of other package extras, from lift passes to catering options. Skiers have the flexibility to book as much or as little as they want in advance, including meals, ski hire, lift passes and spa treatments that are available at a range of residences.
