Why Book with Scout?
  1. 1.

    Personalised service from experts.

    Why book a trip with someone that hasn't been there? We've checked out nearly 700 ski properties at 84 resorts in 8 countries. All our customers have the support of an assigned agent (we are not a call center).

  2. 2.

    Greater Variety

    We seek out a range of properties, beyond the usual travel agent fare. Get the right resort, property and room for your needs, desires and budget.

  3. 3.

    Competitive rates and no hidden charges.

    We work with suppliers to bring you competitive rates. We have special promotions that can’t be purchased directly from a resort or hotel. Our quotes and invoices lay out all charges clearly. 

  4. 4.

    Our Exchange Rate Advantage

    We have negotiated some of the best exchange rates possible and pass that on to you. (Read our article about booking direct or using a major online booking site).

  5. 5.

    Detailed Itineraries

    Receive a comprehensive itinerary with everything you need to know (and more), giving you the confidence to travel independently and stress-free.

  6. 6.

    Scout Field Guide

    Every booking for one of our major resorts receives a cute Scout Field Guide with our insider & local tips.

  7. 7.

    Independent & Unbiased

    No resort or hotel pays to be listed on Scout. We don't allow resorts or hotels to control our content or direct where we send our customers.

  8. 8.

    Emergency Support

    Problems can happen when you're travelling. We're there to help you when it does.

We have our tried and trusted sources for booking Japanese travel as accommodation in some towns is sometimes not accessible to the western web surfer. This year we gave Scout a go as we were struggling with accommodation in Shiga Kogen. Service and result was outstanding. They've been to all of these places and have extremely detailed knowledge.

“We had an amazing trip. All your recommendations were spot on. Thank you for making our honeymoon so much fun”

Jill, New York

“Everything was so easy with all of your guides and instructions and you really made our trip very stress free. We would definitely book with Scout again.”

Stephanie, Yowie Bay, Australia

“Last year we booked a house in Aspen through Scout. This year we're taking the family to Niseko. I don't have time to do research myself and each time you have found exactly the right accommodation for our needs and budget. Thanks Scout for making it easy!”
