If you have your own equipment you will need to pre-book ski carriage. We strongly recommend pre-booking ski carriage as early as possible to ensure your space is reserved. With a limited allocation on each flight, ski carriage is available on a first-come, first-served basis. To avoid disappointment, it’s best to confirm your ski carriage at the time of booking your holiday.
How to book
Your ski and snowboard carriage can be added onto your holiday at the time of booking:
- When booking online, the option of ski carriage, if available, will be shown in the ‘Transport’ section of the booking menu. If ski carriage is already included in the price of the flight, this will be shown on the flight selection.
- When booking by phone simply ask our reservations team to see if ski carriage is available to book. You can call our reservations team on 01483 79 11 11.
If ski carriage is no longer available for your chosen flight, we have a solution for you. Inghams recommends Bagsahead who provide a door-to-door luggage delivery service for your convenience.
Ski Inclusive Bundles
Our Ski Inclusive Bundles are a great way to save on your ski holiday essentials. Standard bundles include a lift pass, and ski/board and boot hire, but you can still save if you’re taking your own skis too! Swap out equipment hire for ski carriage, and you’ll save money on the overall cost of your ski extras.
Ski carriage on charter flights
Inghams have chartered airlines to fly several routes to the mountains this winter. On our chartered flights we offer a standard charge of £40 per set of skis/snowboard for return ski carriage.

Ski carriage on low cost and scheduled flights
In addition to our chartered flights, we can also offer seats on selected low cost and scheduled flights using airlines such as EasyJet and British Airways. Low cost and scheduled airlines charge separately for outbound and inbound ski carriage, and prices vary depending on the airline.

We advise you make sure your ski/travel insurance policy covers your ski carriage arrangements. Neither Inghams nor the airline can accept liability for non-delivery or damage to any item transported as a part of your ski carriage.
Inghams will provide free ski hire in the event of your skis not arriving at the destination airport when you have pre-booked ski carriage on an Inghams charter flight. Free ski hire will be provided for the duration of your holiday or until your skis are delivered to you in resort –whichever happens sooner.
