Morzine and Les Gets top poll for most popular resorts this year
Released by the Daily Mail last week, figures from Caxton FX, a specialist currency provider, reveal that 87% of Brits are planning on heading to France for their Winter holiday this season.
Morzine tops the list of French resorts, with 24% of enquiries, up 16% on last year and Les Gets coming in second with 7% of enquiries.
‘France is the clear winner among British skiers this season,’ says Erica Chang, Senior Regional Director, Owners Direct.
‘Demand for ski accommodation in France has risen year-on-year and our top ten ski resorts are all French.’
The reasons suggested for this shift in popularity is mainly due to the rising prices in Switzerland and Austria.
Its figures have also revealed that December is the most popular month for travellers to take a ski holiday, accounting for almost half of the total enquiries for the 2014/15 season, followed by February, with many opting to take their ski break during the school holidays. Holiday homes are particularly appealing for families, whose travel dates are often restricted to the Christmas and February half-term school holidays, because they offer a more affordable way to enjoy a ski holiday than a hotel or catered chalet and allow the whole family to stay together.
