BOOKING INFORMATION

BOOKING INFORMATION

To discuss dates and availability, please contact our office by phone (0800 689 4135), e-mail (skimajor@aol.com), or fill in the enquiry form on the Contact Us page. We will then confirm availability, send appropriate accommodation details and give you a quote.

Booking is simple;

Step one:

A non-refundable deposit will be paid, representing 30% of the total price, excluding travel and insurance costs.

Step two:

MGS will confirm your booking and give you a confirmation number to be used in future correspondence.

Step three:

The final payment must be paid at least 8 weeks before departure, except in the case of late bookings.

Cancellation charges

These are based on how many days before departure MGS SKI receives written cancellation. These are a percentage of client costs to MGS for accommodation, equipment and lift passes.Insurance and travel payments would involve other companies.

Number of days Charge
More than 42 days Deposit
29 to 42 days 50%
7 to 28 days 90%
0 to 6 days 100%

Damage deposit

A breakage and cleaning deposit of £150 is required in the form of a separate cheque sent with the final payment. This cheque will not be cashed, but held until after your departure and assuming the apartment is left acceptably clean and there is no damage, it will be returned in full.

Insurance

Specialist ski insurance is important since not all policies cover piste rescue and repatriation, or indeed skiing off piste. Please contact us for help and advice.

Protection of your money

MGS SKI has been in business for 30 years, received positive coverage in the national press, and we recognise legal protection of client payments is a must. After discussion with the Department of Trade and Industry when we started, bonding or insurance were deemed inappropriate because of the size and specialist nature of MGS SKI.
Following DTI advice and like many other tour operators, we operate the Trust Fund system, into which money is placed in respect of accommodation, equipment and lift passes. Apart from the initial non-refundable deposit, MGS SKI cannot access this money until completion of your holiday, which gives financial security against insolvency and repatriation. In the extremely unlikely event of problems, clients would contact one of the trustees, Mr. K. Moll, 1 Market Square, Saffron Walden, Essex.
In accordance with the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours regulations 1992, in addition to operating a Trust Fund to protect client money, MGS SKI is required to remind customers of the following:
1) Clients must hold and carry a valid passport to facilitate easy movement, including re-entry into the UK.
2) The self-catering accommodation described is of the highest standard available for normal rent.
3) To comply with Civil Aviation (ATOL) regulations, we do not book flights, but will gladly assist in finding the best available prices.
