Inghams, Ski Total and Flexiski have cancelled the rest of the ski season just days after Crystal announced it had written it off too.
Skiworld has also stopped selling holidays for this winter, although it says it will keep a few properties open just in case travel restrictions are lifted before the resorts close.
Hotelplan, which owns Inghams, Ski Total and Flexiski said it decided to throw in the towel when more resorts announced they’d stay closed for the rest of the season. It had already cancelled all holidays up to 2 April but had been hoping to see some late-season action.
If your package holiday is cancelled you’re entitled to a refund within 14 days. Hotelplan said customers will be offered their money back or the chance to postpone their holiday until a later date.
Boss Joe Ponte said: “We would like to thank our customers and partners for their patience and understanding, and as always, they can be reassured that we will continue to look to do the right thing by them.
“With many skiers and snowboarders eager to get back to the slopes this season, while there was still a possibility that ski holidays would go ahead, we continued to monitor the situation closely. As there has been little change to ongoing travel restrictions, and with further ski resorts announcing that they will remain closed, now is the time to suspend ski trips for this season and focus on making next winter one of the best yet.”
There’s some good news…
Inghams, Ski Total and Flexiski are all looking at adding more holidays for next winter. Joe Ponte said demand was already so high that it’s looking like its going to be a ‘record-breaking’ winter.
