Lunch is not included in the trip cost. We recommend approx €10-12 for lunch and drinks each day = €60-€75.
There is very limited opportunity for shopping. Suggestion is €40-50 pocket money max for the week.
Lunch and pocket money must be put together in an envelope with your child’s name and the amount enclosed written clearly on it. Please avoid high value notes - €10 and €5 notes are perfect. No coins please in the envelope.
You are welcome to bring your phone/media device but please consider the following:
We advise strongly that mobile internet access and the ability to call/text is disabled on all devices during the entire trip, preferably by removing the SIM card. If this is not done, done incorrectly or re-enabled whilst abroad, you may be liable for an extremely large bill from your phone company. Please remember that there is really no need to have such mobile services active as the hotel offers free Wi-Fi access in the communal area. Although we would advise against students taking their phones during the day, there is also free Wi-Fi in most of the cafés on the slopes.
Students are entirely responsible for any devices brought on the trip and for any bills incurred through their use.
You must bring headphones or you will not be allowed to use your device on the coach.
