How to Lower the Cost of Ski Equipment Hire

Posted by snowpackplus on October 21st, 2014

Ski equipment can be very expensive and that’s why most choose to rent rather than buy the gear when going for a ski holiday. The main reason why you are seeking ski equipment hire is to save on costs so there’s no point of spending more than you expect when getting this gear. With so many options to hire ski equipment, you need to be smart and take advantage of every opportunity in order to save. Here are some tips to get discount ski hire.

  1. Book your ski equipment in advance

Booking ski equipment in advance is important because other than the savings, it will eliminate the hassle of finding this gear on the first day of your holiday. If you will be travelling in a peak season then we’d suggest to you book the equipment months prior to your day of travel. You are more likely to get discount ski hire of you make early bookings.

  1. Choose a shop that close to your accommodation

How close is the rental shop to your accommodation? Most people don’t think about this when booking ski equipment but it is really important. Carrying the ski equipment is not easy. These are heavy items that you don’t want to struggle carrying from the shop to your accommodation and returning them back on the last day. When choosing ski equipment hire, always consider the proximity of the rental shop to the place where you’ll be staying while on your ski holiday.

  1. Book through a tour company

Good thing about using your tour operator to find a ski rental company is that, you are more likely to get a good deal because they already have good relations with the people doing this business in that area. You may not have the knowledge to go for the best ski rental shop that offers high quality equipment. However, your tour operator has more experience dealing with ski rental companies on behalf of their clients. They can negotiate a better deal on behalf of their clients.

  1. Book online

Online ski hire companies usually offer very affordable equipment. If you can find a reliable rental company and make bookings in advance online, you are likely to spend less. But be careful when booking ski equipment online. Make sure the company offers quality gear and read reviews from different customers to be confident that they will not disappoint you.
