What does 'Half Board' mean? Half Board packages include breakfasts and dinners with the price of your room. Meals are generally served in the same hotel you are staying in, but now and again you might dine in a neighbouring hotel or restaurant. Our best half board deals also include return flights and transfers.
This is the most popular board basis for ski hotels: Wake up to a hearty breakfast to fuel you up for the day ahead, sort out your own lunch on the mountains, then have supper cooked for you when you're back from the slopes – moments from your room.
Benefits of booking half board include not having to prepare breakfasts or dinners for the duration of your stay, or budget for them separately. Your hotel's chefs will do the hard work, and the cost is covered with your room. Lunches are left out, giving you the chance to check out restaurants on the mountainside and in resort, as well as any farmers markets and delicatessens.
What kind of food you get with half board packages will depend on the hotel you stay in. Breakfast might be a continental spread laid out for you to help yourself to, a buffet of hot and cold options prepared there and then or a breakfast menu to order from. Dinner could be a set menu or a buffet, with two courses or more. If you have your eye on a particular property and want more info on what's offered, drop us a line and we'll find out the details.
If you'd prefer to have lunches included in your trip too, have a look at our full board holidays. For a package with drinks – soft and alcoholic – included too, see what we have available on an all-inclusive basis. Some people prefer a bit more flexibility when it comes to dining in resort, in which case a B&B or room-only option might be more suitable.
For the chance to discover some magnificent mountain restaurants, or if squeezing in a sandwich on the chairlift during an intense day’s skiing is more your style, the popular half board option may be the one for you. A half board package includes breakfast and dinner with your accommodation.
