Earn Free Places: Group Leaders Can Travel for Free!

UCPA trips are perfect for large groups seeking fun in the snow. The shared rooms, large dining halls, group lessons and on-site kit rooms makes travelling as a large group much easier than you might expect. Action Outdoors’ booking system is also specially designed with groups in mind, so it’s easy for each individual group member to book and pay for their own trip – saving the organiser a massive headache!

Even though booking a group is easy peasy, at Action Outdoors we still like to reward the group leader for their hard work and organisation skills - groups of 10+ people will receive one place half price and groups of 20+ will get a place completely free! The cost of the lowest priced holiday will be refunded to the group leader once the group size reaches the target. If the group continues to grow to 30 and beyond, more free and half price places will be offered. The group leader is responsible for deciding who earns the free places or whether to share the saving among the group. So if you’re part of a big group of mates, a sports club or uni society why not plan a low cost winter trip and you can travel for free as a reward?! See below how to book and claim your reward:


How to Build a Group Holiday

 01_34x34pxUse our resort finder to choose the perfect resort and date for your group - remember everyone in the group can select the course most suited to their level, so everyone can join. If you are a very large group contact the office to check availability.

02_34x34pxBook yourself and pay your deposit to confirm your place. You can now share the trip on Facebook or e-mail the holiday link to the group members. If you know the group's personal details and wish to pay altogether - no problem! Just select 'add a friend' and you can register all your friends at the same time. 

03_34x34pxMost groups prefer to book and pay separately and that's very easy - each individual simply follows the 'holiday link' you shared and follows the instructions to add their details and pay their own deposit. They can choose different activities, travel options, room options - but obviously have to be at the same resort on the same week.

04_34x34pxYou can review your holiday booking at any time, see who's booked, who has paid and send out links to other friends. Booking confirmations, payment reminders and holiday details emails go directly to each member of the group so the group leader doesn't have to do all the chasing.

05_34x34pxOnce 10 people have booked and fully paid let us know and we will refund the group leader 50% of the lowest priced holiday. Once the group expands to 20 people or more get back in touch and we will refund the remaining 50%. Please be aware the refunds won't happen automatically so you will have to keep an eye on your group totals and remind us. 

06_34x34pxOnce all payments are made and the group leader has received a refund for the free holiday place we will send 'holiday details' to each individual group member, so everyone knows where they are going, what they have to pack and what to expect. Then it's holiday time!


One fixed price per person, no hassle, no stress of collecting money, no problems if someone cancels - relax - this is supposed to be your holiday too!

Please note that the group discount is only available on full week courses and is not applicable to short breaks, student deals, under 25 deals, family weeks and special offers (including discount codes).

Why not start your holiday together in London Victoria? The coach is just about the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to get to the Alps and so much easier to organise than last minute flights. 

Just click on 'Coach' in the travel option tab when you make your group booking!

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc. We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • No matter how hard you try, when you book everything separately (especially with the Euro and price of food at the moment), you will never beat UCPA.
