VIP SKI Offers Covid Guide For Getting To and From France

The specialist operator has produced what it calls an ‘Easy Guide’ to help its guests steer a path through the rules while taking a ski holiday in France.

“As we know rules and interpretations have tended to evolve rather frequently of late but the information is based on our current experience of travelling to and from France and of being in resort and on the pistes this week,” VIP SKI says in a statement.

“There is a bit of paperwork before flying in both directions, an Antigen or PCR test in the 48 hours before you travel in both directions and a Day 2 PCR test on your return, but the airlines explain the paperwork required and provide links to help everyone through this.”

One complexity is for some teenagers on a family ski holiday, as 12-15 year olds have not been double jabbed in the UK.

For those that are not fully vaccinated (including all UK children under 16 currently) but have proof of Covid infection within six months and proof of one vaccination, then VIP SKI has arranged for guests to apply before travel for a certificate and QR code for the duration of their stay.

“This gives holidaymakers a hassle-free experience when it comes to collecting a ski pass and entering bars and restaurants,” said VIP SKI.

If not, it’s testing every 24 hours.

Guests need to provide an example of evidence deemed acceptable by the chemist, including a screen shot of text from the NHS confirming infection and the card received on vaccination.

This is collected on arrival and costs €36.

This is available to prebook if booking with VIP SKI in Val d’Isere, Les Arcs and Avoriaz.

“There is some mask wearing in airports, aircraft, coach transfers, taxis, bars, restaurants, shops, ski lifts and queues but nothing that will spoil any enjoyment of your holiday, and we’ve all kind of got used to it now,” said VIP SKI.

The company will also have printers in resort ‘for those that prefer paper and ink to digital finger swiping.’
