WHY CHOOSE AMPED?

When dealing with AMPED Ski & Dive Ltd, you are dealing with a company who prides themselves on being ‘the’ SKI and SNOWBOARDING Adventure Travel Specialists. After all, how possibly can you sell something if you don’t know it first hand? So, this is the point of difference when you deal with AMPED, as we have travelled to your dream ‘on snow’ destination, and have tried and tested out all of our recommended products and services before we endorse them to our clients for selection.

Whilst you can search on the Internet and make holiday purchases that way, we wouldn’t recommend this approach on such a high risk, high value item such as a ski holiday. Reason being is that every resort and ski destination has their own unique qualities, some of which may not be entirely suited to your own individual needs.

At AMPED we hereby offer our services, which all derive from personal experiences, with you ‘our valued customer’ to ensure you are selecting the perfect ski resort/s, the very best accommodation and location, acquiring the most competitive prices, and will of course be skiing the best powder and trail option available to you, every time!

TRUST US, WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING!

‘AMPED’ TRUSTED TRAVEL PROFESSIONALS – WE WILL SAVE YOU TIME, MONEY, AND FRUSTRATION!

SHORTFALLS OF BOOKING OVER THE INTERNET !?!?…

UNEXPECTED FEES – When booking over the Internet, clients often purchase products in a foreign currency. Remember: your credit card or direct debit card provider will use a lesser rate of exchange, so the end cost will be more than you possibly expected. Also, you will most likely incur some fairly hefty fees on those purchases as well as the inferior bank rate.

PRODUCT SELECTION RISK – There is no guarantee that you are booking the right product for your needs. It has never been truer than the quote ‘you get what you pay for’, and unfortunately, booking your ski and snowboarding holiday over the Internet is no exception to that rule.

LACK OF SUPPORT – When booking over the Internet, remember you are then left on your own without anyone to provide you with support or advice should you require it at any stage. The Internet can be an all care, no responsibility attitude, and once they have your money, their service stops there.

ITS NOT GOING TO BE ANY CHEAPER – At AMPED, we deal directly with the suppliers and have heavily reduced, negotiated deals for this part of the world. Combined with our service levels, and professional advice and after sales support, you will not pay anymore when you book with us here at AMPED.

INFERIOR OFFERINGS AIR – An issue with booking your flights over the Internet can be that the search engines can often come up with flights that are not necessarily the most direct options, or sometimes have you sitting in transit for hours without realizing what it is that you have booked. Sometimes spending an extra $20-50 is well worth it when you consider the pain of sitting in an airport for 3-6 hours, all just to save a few small dollars.

INFERIOR OFFERINGS LAND – Booking a hotel on the Internet is very risky. After all, you are relying on a write up of offerings, and often it is the suppliers bias advise that you are taking. Booking with AMPED takes this risk away, as we have sampled the products, and know which ones first hand are actually offering what it is that they say they are.

LACK OF COHESION – When you book on line, you are often booking with various different suppliers, and none of whom are aware of what other plans are on your itinerary. Booking with AMPED, we offer a cohesive travel itinerary assuring our customers that all the components of your holiday are arranged in unison to ensure that your travel itinerary runs smoothly.
