FAQ's for single ski holidays & beachclubs
ski holiday for beginners
skivo2 holidays in Courchevel will be specially suitable as the very best English BASI tuition is included in the price, I cannot recommend this highly enough. If you choose a holiday with another tour operator lessons will normally be extra and booked at the local ski school.
Will there be an opportunity to meet the rest of the group before we travel?
Sometimes we organise social weekends in the UK which make an ideal introduction for new members & a reunion for those who have travelled before. You can also visit me in Reading or chat on the phone any time. We put you in touch with other guests in your area before you travel to share airport parking and travel together if you wish.
No single supplent
The holiday price is for shared rooms and i am happy to find someone for you to share with. If you prefer a single room we try to find them without supplement or at least for a reasonable amount.
Large group ski holidays
One of the reasons that we hope to have a large group is to make sure everyone has good company within their own ski ability. When you book I can tell you more about other members of the group & their ski experience.
What does Singlesport get out of the holiday?
Very good company to ski with! Usually the tour operator gives the tour leader a free place which helps me to cover the cost of running the Singlesport web site, advertising etc In return for this I have to undertake to deal with all the enquiries & administration for the group.
What age group will the party be?
This varies but usually 20s to 60+. Please ask me to advise further on any particular holiday
Is Singlesport a dating agency?
No it isn't. We are simply a social group bringing together single skiers who enjoy good company and want to be part of a group. The majority of members will be single but some will be married people whose partner doesn't ski. Lots of friendships have been formed & members have gone on to book additional trips privately with friends they have met through Singlesport. If its important to you at the time of booking I will be able to tell you how many men & ladies have booked but this will obviously vary as the bookings come in & hopefully you will help by inviting your friends to join us.
How can we help invite more skiers?
Please invite anyone you know or put a note on your local notice board at the gym or dry ski slope. It is much appreciated if you would also mention singlesport on the various ski forums
Can children come?
One day when Singlesport is much bigger perhaps we might organise a chalet for single parents with their children but currently it is not viable, . Many members do however bring their grown up children in their 20s particularly at Christmas
Can couples come as part of the party?
Yes. Couples are by far the minority but some have met on our holidays & continue to travel with us. If you often travel with a group that includes couples please invite them. If you book as a single & between now & then meet a new partner you wish to include that's fine too.
What if something goes wrong?
Please remember that Singlesport is not a travel agent. I am simply inviting you to join a party but your contract will be with the tour operator & so please familiarise yourself with all their terms & conditions .
Will there be golf/tennis/sailing/beach holidays?
Yes. We are now offering Neilson Beach clubs in the summer which include a huge variety of land and water sports. As our membership grows it may be possible to organise more specialised holidays in a variety of other sports
