What is Scout?

What is Scout?

Scout is part travel agency, part guidebook and part magazine. We have toured the world's best ski resorts and hotels with the sole purpose of helping you find and book the perfect ski trip. Scout is a small company offering highly personalised service.


The Booking Process

Every ski trip by Scout is custom made based on your dreams, needs and budget. Whether you know exactly where you want to go or need help narrowing down the options we’re here to help. You will be assigned an agent that has been to that destination who will build your ski package including hotels, lift passes, rentals, transfers, lessons and more. If you just want to book accommodation only that’s fine too! There are no fees for our services and you’ll pay exactly the same as if you book direct, or often times even better. Contact us to get started.


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 1,000 ski properties at 94 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.

“Have used Scout twice for family ski trips this past year, one in Japan and one in France; outstanding in both cases, attention to detail and service quality were fantastic, recommended accomodation was perfect for our needs which is far from easy given we have four young kids.

Billy, Sydney

“We worked with Sarah on a 3 week ski trip to the Alps - Les Trois Vallees and Zermatt. She was very knowledgeable and informed about the ski areas, lodging options, restaurants, and logistics at these resorts. We wanted ski-in, ski-out lodging and Sarah provided us with choices that were ideally located for extremely easy and close access to both the ski slopes and the towns. Sarah also helped us by arranging transportation to/from the Geneva airport at the last minute, as the French rail strike caused my train arrangements to be cancelled. She provided excellent and timely customer service and the arrangements could not have been better. She nailed it.

Ron, South Carolina

“Personalised, caring service from true professionals at Scout. We've booked two holidays - one for family and one for just the adults - and Scout has excelled on delivery at every turn.

Margot, Sydney

Our trip was really awesome. The hotel was perfect for us and the skiing was great.  It was one of the best ski trips I have done. Thanks for making it all work out so smoothly.

Hamilton, Massachusetts

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.

David, Sydney

“The trip couldn't have been better. Thanks for your organization.”

Husan, Beijing

“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!”

Anthony, Sydney
