How to Book Your Ski or Snowboard Holiday

Booking a UCPA ski or snowboard holiday through Action Outdoors is very easy. Follow the below steps to pick the right package for you and make the booking online.

Is the UCPA right for you?

If this is the first time you have booked with Action Outdoors and you are new to the UCPA experience, the first thing to do is to read about the UCPA and what to expect from a UCPA holiday. The UCPA all inclusive packages are like no others on the market and can often seem too good to be true

Find the right holiday for you

To find the holiday package which best suits your needs you can use our advanced search function. Here you can search availability by date, resort, course and other important factors. To read more about each of the course options just click on the hyperlinked price in the search results.

Not sure which resorts are good for you? No problem, try our resort advisor. It takes just a few minutes to complete and will provide you a list of the resorts which best suits your needs. You can read more information about each of the resorts here.

Not sure which course to pick? No problem, read more about the courses here. If you are unsure what level you are, compare your experience against the UCPA levels. Remember to read the full course description before booking.

Make a booking

All Action Outdoors bookings and payments are made online. The booking process is very easy:

  1. Open the holiday package you wish to book. Double check the resort, date and course is correct.
  2. On the right hand side of the screen you will see ‘Room Options’ & ‘Travel Options’. If you wish to book a special room type or add travel options to your booking, you do so here.  Click ‘Book Now’ to proceed.
  3. Continue to follow the booking instructions, reviewing the holiday details at each step. Enter your contact details when prompted. We use the email address, date of birth and phone number provided to create a booking ID, so make sure you provide the correct details. This will generate you a booking 'Quote'. If you exit the screen now, you can log in at any time and continue with the booking process, no reservation is made until a payment has been received.
  4. The next screen gives those who are travelling with others the option to ‘add a friend’ to their booking. If you know your friend’s course preference and all their contact details you can go ahead and add them to your booking. Note; you will automatically be sent a link to your holiday cart which friends can use to book themselves. The latter is often an easier option.
  5. You must make payment to proceed with the booking. If you are booking more than 8 weeks before travel you can make a reservation with a £100 non-refundable deposit (per person). The remaining balance is due 45 days before travel. If you are booking within 8 weeks of travel you must pay the full balance. Note; you can pay for all members of the group or just your own holiday.

Confirmation

Your booking is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from us. It may take up to 24 hours to confirm your booking with the UCPA, don’t book travel until you have received confirmation.

At any time you can log into your booking to make further payments, add flight details, add a new person to your group or simply view your group’s booking. Either follow the link provided on the confirmation email we have sent you or use the Log In button on the homepage menu bar.

Extend Stay

If you are hoping to spend 2 or more consecutive weeks at the UCPA, whether it be at the same resort or at different resorts, you should book the holidays as if they were separate holidays. There is no way of paying for the holidays together unfortunately, except by making payment over the phone. You should email us once you have made the bookings as we may be able to apply a small discount. For further information about booking an extended stay or which resorts to pick click here
