Ski Holiday in Austria – Budget Planner

ski holiday austria

EN  Hello again, dear friends! I have just come back from a perfect ski holiday in Austria and thought to myself – why not give you a small guide on how to replicate my perfect holiday, in case you’re a ski fan. So here it goes, some tips and some information about how much money you need to spend:

I always rented an apartment with family and friends. We believe it’s easier to have an apartment and cook your own food. Being on the ski slopes all day, you usually have 2 main meals and you never know what time you’ll be back. This way you don’t depend on anyone and you make your own schedule. Renting an apartment varies, but you can find good places with €150-€200 per couple, per week. Best place to book a place is Interchalet.

RO  Saluut! Am lipsit putin ce-i drept, insa am avut motive serioase: am petrecut un concediu tare placut in Austria la ski. Si cum imi place mie de obicei, am ales sa va fac un mic rezumat cu ce trebuie sa stiti daca va organizati si voi sa mergeti si cam cat va costa un astfel de concediu. 

In primul rand, cazarea: noi mereu am mers pe principiul de a inchiria un apartament pe familie/prieteni. Asa nu ne constrange nimic, ne gatim noi singuri si e mai usor. Fiind toata ziua la ski, organizam de obicei doua mese mari si la ore total diferite. Uneori suntem mai obositi, alteori mai matinali…asa ca e mai bine sa nu depinzi de vreun program la hotel. E si cel mai avantajos din punct de vedere financiar: in medie e undeva pe la €150 – €200 de cuplu pe o saptamana. Cel mai bun site de cazare, din punctul nostru de vedere, e Interchalet.

EN  Food there is similar with UK prices so you can buy there all your stuff. If you decide to eat on top of the mountains, you’ll pay around €15-€20 per person. They serve good quality food in those cottages with superb views, they also have great beer and mulled wine at very good prices.

The ski passes can be a bit pricey, but the more days you buy them for, the cheaper they get. It’s around €200 per person for a 5 day season. But you can pay slightly less or more, depending on the area you’re going to. All ski areas are beautiful and worth visiting, in my opinion. However, because it’s quite warm these days, choose something at a higher altitude just to make sure the snow is plenty. Details about prices, ski slopes and everything around Kitzbuhel – are all here.

RO  Mancarea e significant mai scumpa decat in Romania. Din Romania e usor, te urci in masina si incarci bagajele cu cateva cumparaturi. Asa e cel mai bine, macar alimente de baza pentru primele mese. Daca alegi sa mananci in oras, e plin de cabane in varful muntilor cu peisaje deosebite. O masa e in jur de €15-€20 de persoana, iar calitatea mancarii e foarte buna. Berea si vinul fiert se gasesc la orice loc la preturi okay. 

Cel mai mare cost e accesul la partii. Un bilet pe un sezon de 5 zile e undeva la €200, depinde de zona pe care o alegeti, adica numarul de partii. Toate partiile pe care le-am vazut m-au impresionat. Insa pentru ca e tot mai cald iernile, va sugerez undeva la altitudini mai mari. Asa va asigurati ca partia e okay, altfel skiati mai mult pe zapada artificiala sau moale. De data asta noi am fost in zona Kitzbuhel, o zona foarte intinsa. Detalii cu partii, preturi, altitudini etc – le aflati aici

EN  You’ll find loads of buses that offer free transportation to different ski areas. So look for this when booking your accommodation, if you don’t have a car. You’ll need some sort of transportation, unless you live just next to a base.

Bring some FastumGel or any other type of pain killer remover for your muscles. If you are not in the greatest shape, you can pull your muscles easily – depending on how much you ski. Don’t overdo it from the first day! It’s a holiday, but it is an intense work out.

ski holiday austriaRO  Transportul la partii e foarte important. De cele mai multe ori aveti de mers si cel mai comod e sa aveti o masina. Insa daca nu aveti, e plin de autobuze care va transporta gratuit doar cu ski pass-ul pe care oricum l-ati luat. La casa de bilete va pot oferi informatii cu statii, orar, tot ce trebuie.

Desi e un concediu, poate fi obositor mai ales daca nu sunteti in cea mai buna conditie fizica. Nu exagerati din prima zi si va recomand sa luati cu voi creme de tip Fastum Gel pentru musculatura. Pentru mine cel putin a fost destul de obositor, dar poate si pentru ca am incercat sa ma tin dupa Dan – n-am cazut decat zilnic.

EN   And last but not least, go at least one day to a spa! You need it, and there are some beautiful ones. You can go to local ones for about €15/person. You’ll get some warm water and saunas. But if you’re after those fancy places with hot jacuzzis outside, you’ll have to pay €30 or more. Overall, a ski trip can cost you minimum €500 per person, with all reduced to the bone. If you want to relax a bit, €700 is more of a real number.

RO   Si cel mai important, nu uitati de spa! Mergeti cel putin o zi (sau o dupa masa) la un spa, sa va relaxati si sa va bucurati de un tratament. Sunt multe bazine in diverse localitati la preturi in jur de €15 de persoana cu sauna inclusa. Iar daca vreti ceva in stilul pozelor faimoase cu jacuzzi in aer liber, printre munti va costa aproximativ dublu. Iar per total o vacanta la ski in Austria va poate costa minim €500 de persoana, cu economii la sange. Insa vreo €700 e un numar mai real zic eu.

Santorini: Budget Planner

Santorini on a budgetEN    Budget is very important when planning a holiday. That’s why we don’t always choose to go to Australia or New York, because our budget is often limited. It’s easy when choosing an all inclusive package – this way you know how much it will cost you so you can decide straight away. However, I am a fan of the bed and breakfast. If I go somewhere I want to see as much as possible. This means I want to travel around, so I will miss all those all inclusive drinks (and meals). And Santorini is definitely a place where you do not want to go on a all inclusive package. It’s a place with small islands, various beaches hidden in the cliffs, with something different to do and see every single day. To make it easier for you, I made a table with average prices for basic things. We bought our own flight tickets and found the accommodation on booking.com based on the feedback and the view. I also want to say that we went there in June. If you want to go there in July or August it might cost you slightly more. Another thing that we heard is that by August it gets very busy, a bit too annoying busy, so we recommend to avoid that period. Overall Santorini was to die for and I totally recommend it to you!

RO   Bugetul e foarte important atunci cand ne planificam o vacanta. Poate am alege mereu locuri gen Australia si New York, insa din pacate bugetul ne e limitat. Cel mai usor e atunci cand alegem un pachet all inclusive. Stim de la inceput cat ne costa si putem hotari imediat. Insa eu personal prefer excursiile cu doar mic dejun. Imi place sa calatoresc prin zona pe care o vizitez si asta inseamna ca as rata toate mesele si bauturile platite la hotel. Si mai ales Santorini e o locatie care nu prea merge pe principiul all inclusive. Plajele sunt departe, localitatile sunt multe si e pacat sa tot fugi la cazare la masa. Si e plin de restaurante faine, cu mese la pret avantajos si cu privelisti de vis. Asa ca, sa va fie mai usor, am facut un mic tabel cu preturile de baza. Noi am luat biletele de avion individual si am ales cazarea de pe Booking.com in functie de feedback si priveliste. Vreau sa mai mentionez faptul ca noi am fost in Iunie. In lunile Iulie-August preturile mai cresc usor. Am aflat ca in August e cel mai aglomerat, insa prea aglomerat si nu se recomanda sa mergeti atunci. Per total, insula Santorini a fost fenomenala si va recomand cu caldura sa mergeti!
