The idea is great. The website is good.
We rented for a week for 6 people snowboards, shoes, helmets in total for around EUR 500. Then we had to change our booking. As a result we rented for around 400 EUR but we did not receive any refunds. The local provider told us to deal with skidiscount to get a refund. But they reject the refund and point to the local provider.
Both also insist that we returned the equipment later - which is not true. Nobody offered any compensation.
I can not recommend skidiscount AND I can not recommend Hervis in Mayrhofen/Zillertal/Austria.

I booked a set of skis, and boots through ski discount for my brother for our ski holiday in St Anton last week at the Sport 2000 shop which is located at the bottom of the Nasserein ski lift.
The staff were very helpfull, they did not question the voucher we printed off from ski discount (which seems to be the case in some of these reviews).
Even though I booked the basic boots and skis for my brother because he is a novice skier, sport 2000 offered him the complete range of skis at no extra cost. they just wanted him to have the best skis for his ability,
Sport 2000 is a very reputably ski hire company in the St Anton area with a shop at the Nasserien, and both the top and bottom of the Gatzig ski lift. I can not see a shop like this being associated with some fly by night company that some reviewers say about ski discount.
The price was cheaper than what was being offered by our ski holiday company.

Have several websites but same company.
Unlawful terms and conditions
No customer service
And I suspect the majority of their positive reviews are fake.

Booked 8 days hire but when we arrived and after waiting 40 minutes the shop closed for lunch until 2pm. unheard of on change over days. Shop agreed not to charge the supplier but they charged me and refused to reply to emails. proper con merchants.
They own several domains so beware. Hes also decided now to spam me despite unsubscribing. now getting emails from several domains.

I also have serious doubts about their positive reviews on trustpilot. doesnt take a genius to see the majority of positive reviews have never reviewed anything else. I wonder if trust pilot look into these?

I booked skis and cancelled my booking within 24 hours. Ski Discount wold not give me my money back. They have a very uncustomer friendly cancellation policy which is much more draconian than the shops that fulfil the booking. If you cancel they keep all the money and the shop gets nothing. I did get my money back in the end via a PayPal complaint. Just as well that I did not book using my bank card. They are also awful to communicate with.

Worked very well - cheaper to go through ski discount than book directly with the shop. Would use again.

I booked skis and boots for a trip to Gressoney La Trinite in Italy with Ski Discount. The cost was taken from my account. On presenting the Ski Discount voucher at the designated ski hire shop they said that they had no business relationship with Ski Discount and would not honour the voucher - leaving me no alternative but to rent at full local price (and to pay again) for the ski hire. Despite emails to repeatedly emails to Ski Discount I have had no response and no refund as yet. The practices of this organisation seem fraudulent.
In addition the full local price charged to me was only about 10% more than the price Ski Discount claimed was a 30% reduction on local prices - again misleading and fraudulent practice.

I was a little distrusting of the service at first but when I turned up at the shop it just went as normal but quicker , no registering no payment, just show the voucher and get the skis , they weren't set aside and ready and waiting but that was a bonus as I could choose what i wanted

Easy to use, efficient website and good value ski hire for my recent trip to Morzine in France. Would recommend to friends & family!
Review by BalticTrvler4 years ago
My wife and I had to wait over an hour in getting skis and again giving them back. Did not save money when compared with what French visitors paid.
However I also had my skis stolen on the last day and took out the insurance with Skidiscount rather than Precision Ski in resort. As a consequence I had to pay for them and claim back on Ski Discounts Frence insurers. 3 weeks later I am still waiting for the money.
Going skiing again in April and will get skis in resort as it is cheaper and will take out local insurance

Saved a fortune compared to going direct. Added benefit of being invoiced in Euro's helped as the exchange rate was so favourable. Great service at Ski Resort - no issues with vouchers etc. Thanks !!

Review by Sullen Lords4 years ago
On arrival at the ski shop, we found that we had paid much more through "ski discount" than we would have had to pay at the shop itself.
The shop - online and in store - give free hire for a child under 10 with each adult renting equipment.
I have emailed ski discount twice setting this out. They have not replied.

They were far cheaper than other sites and the process of booking was quick and simple
Review by Taus Mutchell4 years ago
We rented skis online through Ski Discount two days before going out to the Alps as we had been a little disorganised as a result of Christmas. We came across this website that offered us the cheapest equipment than any other website. The ski shop was efficient and extremely helpful, listening to your every requirement. Will definitely be using this website again and would recommend to anyone.

very helpful and quick ski fitting, consideration for our young children taken and good skis at a bargain price. no quibbles on the return just smiles!
Review by Sibongile4 years ago
I have managed to save more than half price compared with ski hires at the shop. I have even made the booking the evening before so no need for early booking to keep my options open. The only inconvenice was the obligation to print the confirmation which can be difficult if you need to find a place to print. My hotel was kind enough to print a copy for me but I would expect in this day and age of e-tickets we should be given the option of just showing the e-ticket to the shop to scan the bar code or QR code from an email confirmation or the app of skidiscount.
