Bulgaria This Winter The Up-and-Coming Ski Destination

Share Article

Many people thinking about skiing for the first are often shocked at the overall price of a week on the slopes. It all adds up – accommodation, food, ski pass, not to mention the equipment hire and the price of a few drinks in the evening.

Traditional ski resorts in Europe can be very expensive. France, Switzerland and Austria certainly offer very few bargains for winter sport holidaymakers. People who love their skiing and enjoy a bargain are heading for Bulgaria.

Bulgaria becomes a fully fledged member of the EU in 2007 and Sofia is actively bidding for the winter Olympics in 2014. This has led to increased investment in ski developments and property as the infrastructure is improved dramatically to attract winter as well as summer tourists. Ski resorts such as Borovets and Bansko are now among Europe’s top ski resorts and offer excellent value for money.

Another advantage of Bulgaria as a ski destination is the fact that ski travel insurance costs no more than the equivalent package in any other European country. Ski travel insurance from Complete Ski costs from just £13.94 for a week’s skiing in Bulgaria.

James Berry, Marketing Manager for ski and snowboarding travel insurance specialists Complete Ski (http://www.complete-ski.com), explains: “The investment in Bulgaria over recent years has been significant and it’s really taking off as a major ski resort. This season it really seems to be competing with the more traditional resorts such as those in France, Italy, Austria or Switzerland.”

“Many people seem to think that travel insurance costs more because you’re travelling to Eastern Europe. But that’s not the case. We charge the same tariff wherever you go skiing in Europe so, with the relative bargains available in Bulgaria, we expect it to continue to rise in popularity as a ski destination.”
