How to avoid extortionate holiday travel costs!

La Source has just come up with a way of avoiding all the extortionate holiday flight, transfer and train costs! The cheapest way to travel to your ski resort is to link  up with 3 or 4 other families and to hire a mini bus. If you are 15-17 people, the total cost of travel will be around £85 per person return each. It is sustainable, communal and fun and we will put you in touch with the other families!
