Cosmos launches first-ever ski packages
With over fifty years of experience in family holidays, Cosmos Holidays has launched its first ever ski package programme. It has initially introduced packages to Germany, Austria and Switzerland on the back of new Monarch flights to Munich, Friedrichshafen and Innsbruck.
Featured resorts include the popular Austrian favourites of Zell Am See, Kaprun and Mayrhofen in Austria, together with some lesser-known resorts such as Schliersee and Oberstdorf in Germany, which are small and ideal for first-timers or those with young families. Accommodation on offer ranges from B&Bs to all-inclusive hotel packages.
Neil Garner of Cosmos said: “By packaging the recently launched Monarch flights from key UK airports with a good selection of ski accommodation in popular ski areas, we are building an exciting new programme.
“With short transfer times from the key gateway airports into this ski region, we will offer a variety of durations from two-night stays upwards to suit individuals. With the high volume of flights to Austria and Germany, we have put this product on sale first and it will be our core programme.”
They are also introducing ski holidays to resorts in France, Italy and Spain later this month, to take advantage of the Monarch flights to Grenoble, Venice,Verona and Barcelona, including packages to the little-known Pyrenean resort of Formigal, which has 137km of slopes, many of which are easy pistes for beginners or gentle cruising for intermediates; a snow garden (for kids aged 4 months -2 ½ years); toboganning, and dog-sledding and terrain parks for boarders.
Cosmos is also offering free ski carriage on return flights with a saving of up to £50 per person for bookings made before December 31 for travel until April 30 on selected routes.
Current offers (subject to change and availability) include a four-night package is priced from £319pp based on a departure from Manchester on December 3 at the three diamond rated JUFA Kempten to include return flights and half-board accommodation. A seven-night stay at the three diamond Harmony Harfenwirt Hotel in Niederau costs from £565pp.
