However, being fully catered during your break away might be worth the extra expense. Here are our reasons why spending more can actually save you money and time too!

No need to shop for food

When you’re on holiday, you will want to make every moment count, and it can be frustrating when you need to take time away from your chosen activities to do things such as food shopping. If you choose a fully catered chalet, however, you won’t have to do this – because all of your food will be provided for you. This leaves you with as much time as possible free to do exactly what you like, and this way you really will be able to make the most of your ski holiday.

Your budget is set

If you have to think about buying food while you’re in Chamonix, then you will have to take more spending money while you’re over there. If, however, you are catered, you will find that your spending money goes much further, as you will only need to spend it on activities rather than meals. If you pre-book activities then this is even better, as you will have more money left over for souvenirs from your trip.

Get ready for the slopes

In Chamonix, you need to be fit and healthy or you won’t be able to cope with all of the physical demands of a skiing break. It helps if you eat a balanced diet both before you set off and while you’re there, as this can help your body to get the energy that it needs to do all of the exercise and activities that you have planned. If you are in catered accommodation then your meals are much more likely to be balanced than they would if you were either grabbing food on the go, or making quick meals for yourself. The caterers know all about the demands of the slopes, and this puts them in the best possible position to provide you with all of the nutrition that you need to make sure that you have brilliant break.

In general, although you may not be enthusiastic about paying the extra money for a fully catered break when you book it initially, you should find that there are many benefits from doing so, so it is something to consider carefully. You may have saved up for your break for a long time, and this means that you need to enjoy every single second of it while you’re there, and if you don’t have to think about your food and what you’re cooking for meals, you have the best chance of being able to do this, and making memories that will last a lifetime.
