“Proven over many years”

Written on: 09/12/2014

I have booked 6 ski holidays with Direct Ski over the last 8 years. I must say I have never had a problem with them. Booking via the website is quick and easy. Flights have always been on time and with recognised, albeit, budget carriers. Once due to bad weather we could not fly out of our nominated airport. Direct Ski arranged an alternative departure airport with no fuss. Reps in resorts have been knowledgable and helpful. Hotels have been as described. Finally, I have never been able to find… Read Full Review

“DirectSki are not a good Ski company!”

Written on: 06/02/2014 by helicopterpilot001 (1 review written)

My wife and i travelled to Salzburg with Directski on the 25th February 2014. We had problems in that their brochure states that our hotel is only 80 meters to the ski lifts when in actual fact you have to get a bus daily to the lifts which are 1.4 kms away from Bad Hofgastein. We had a lovely holiday though but i emailed a complaint to DirectSki when we returned and have heard nothing from them. I am in business myself and would not even think to run my company this way. Their website states… Read Full Review

“Buyers Beware!”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by BigBruv (4 reviews written)

I was always worried about booking with Direct Ski, it all seemed too good to be true. Why oh why didn't I take note of the other reviews? So we book our holiday nice and early (Aug2013), all flights look good, hotel looks good, price looks good. Today I receive the email (nov2013): 'Dear Skier We are writing to you to advise that due to low early bookings across the season we have had to cancel our flights from Manchester to Austria. We do apologise for the inconvenience this causes to… Read Full Review

“Really dreadful company”

Written on: 27/10/2013

They were so shocking that I'm surprised they are still in business. Totally dishonest and weazeled out of any responsibility for their actions. As another reviewer has pointed out, they are registered in Ireland so you can't go through English courts - which I wanted to do… Read Full Review

“Andorra Skiing with Directski.com”

Written on: 04/02/2013 by guitar121 (1 review written)

I traveled with Directski.com to Arinsal in Andorra for a week of falling over. Total beginners we went with the full package including equipment, lessons and lift passes. The reps we're fantastic and i'd certainly recommend the bar crawl. I went with my partner but ended up hanging with about 14 others that we met on the first night or two. From the time we got off the plane to the time we got back on the plane we were looked after by directksi reps. The ski instructors we're so patient and… Read Full Review

“TTT”

Written on: 15/03/2012 by spartan99 (1 review written)

Be aware they are registered in Ireland so complaints and court procedure are more difficult. I used them once and trying to get my money to be refund. Very bad and low standard of service. Complaints are not accepted. … Read Full Review

“DON'T THINK THAT YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU BOOKED AND PAID...”

Written on: 29/12/2011

I have just returned from my second ski holiday with Direct Ski. The first time they changed the flight times from a noon flight to an early morning one from Gatwick which meant the additional cost of overnight accommodation as one could not get an early enough train from Milton Keynes. I decided to give them a second chance and they did something similar - only worse. Once again they changed the flight times but went a step further and instead of using the usual airports for Andorra… Read Full Review

“Misleading offers”

Written on: 23/10/2011

"Save £70 book by 2pm" said Directski's misleading advert. If I'd waited till 2pm I could have saved more, not less as the price went down at 2 pm not up! Days later it was even lower and two weeks later is lower still and we aren't even in the skiing season! Will never book a holiday with them again. They aren't to be trusted.It's one thing to discount holidays nearer the departure date but to keep changing the price so far in advance and giving the impression the holiday is going to cost… Read Full Review

“Having not yet been on this holiday I can't comment on...”

Written on: 07/04/2011

Having not yet been on this holiday I can't comment on the accommodation but we have booked specifically with this company for the 6.25 am flight so that we can arrive, unpack, sort out skis, get kids fed etc. Twice now we have had the flight time changed, the second time only this morning, 2 days before due to travel. We will now arrive at resort at 9.30 pm (7 hours later htan scheduled) with 2 young kids having not eaten an evening meal which we have paid for. We are infuriated with this… Read Full Review

Guest's Comment

Written on: 02/03/2012

Something similar happened to me. We had booked a 1 week skiing holiday to Austria for February 2012. The flight times were changed from 6.00 to 16.40 - ten hours later! We arrived at the resort in Tyrol, Austria, after midnight, as we were the very last guests to be dropped off. My daughter became sick from exhaustion the next day and we missed 1.5 days of skiing. I will never book with Directski again.

“Having not actually been on the holiday yet this...”

Written on: 03/03/2011 by Laurenceogrady (1 review written)

Having not actually been on the holiday yet this review can only count towards the company's ability to book a holiday. I will write a review on my return next week to encompass the holiday as a whole.

However they have left me nothing short of infuriated that I had to do something. Three days before we are due to leave they contact us and say your two bed apartment was over booked and there are no other similar apartments available so the best we can offer is a studio.

Bearing in mind… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2010

First time we'd used directski.com and they were absolutely great. Got a great deal for a self catering apartment with flights and transfers for two of us with ski carriage for under £950. All contact with them before leaving was excellent - very helpful and relaxed staff (with great Irish accents of course) that get the job done. Same thing during travel and in resort - did everything we needed without being too in your face. Would recommend to anyone - easily as good as others we've used… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2009 by robert strutt (1 review written)

Direct Ski are super value for money..coming from someone that has been skiing for 20 years.
good staff on phone and in the resort.. They have good hotels and a good range of resorts to go to..
I have tried to go on my own and i can not beat them on price, may not suit first time skiers.
very hard to pass up… Read Full Review
