London, UK (PRWeb UK) February 12, 2010
UK skiers headed to the US may be in for a pleasant surprise if the price cuts seen in Post Office Family Ski Report for Vail in Colorado are reflected in elsewhere - the Post Office report revealed a year-on-year 11 per cent price drop for UK winter holidaymakers' spending their travel money in the resort.
The report, which considers the price of lift passes, equipment hire, lessons and living costs for UK skiers' travel money, found that Vail in Colorado, may be a good choice for UK travellers seeking a trans-Atlantic skiing holiday that won't break the bank.
At current foreign currency exchange rates, skiers visiting in Vail will require travel money of around £372.83 per person to cover skiing costs and food and drink, compared to another trans-Atlantic ski resort in Banff, Canada, which will set UK skiers back at £429.06 .
The report also revealed that Vail can be more cost-effective for UK holidaymakers' foreign currency spend than some European destinations. Verbier in Switzerland, for example, was the most expensive European destination being priced at £422.21 based on current foreign currency exchange rates.
The Post Office Head of Travel Services, Sarah Munro said:"It is worth comparing the prices of ski equipment hire and lift passes in different resorts as these can make a big difference to your travel money budget and the overall amount of foreign currency you will have to spend on a skiing holiday."
