SALE UPDATE: Classic Collection Holidays is running a special weekend sale where bookings made between February 3-6 can benefit from an exclusive £100 discount per couple.

The discount is applicable on all Austria and Switzerland holidays meaning agents can pass on the very best price available if booked before 22:00 Monday.

In addition agents can also be in with the chance to win a Lakes & Mountains educational place with the operator when booking an Austria or Switzerland holiday.

The operator has introduced a luxury Lakes and Mountains programme which is showcased in a 140-page brochure and includes a variety of resorts in Austria, Italy, Slovenia and Switzerland.

All resorts offer luxury four- and five-star hotels plus, in Switzerland, there are three seven-day itineraries featuring famous rail journeys: the Gotthard Panorama Express (formerly William Tell Express), Golden Pass and Glacier Express; the latter often referred to as the world’s slowest express train.

A selection of sightseeing and activity ideas are also available in every resort and many hotels feature a ‘We highly recommend’ section promoting must-do outings including cable car rides to the revolving Schilthorn restaurant famed by Bond’s On her Majesty’s Secret Service, plus walks down from Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald or Wengen. A family section is also featured and child-friendly hotels are highlighted throughout the brochure.

In Switzerland, children aged up to (and including) 15 years of age can travel free when travelling with parents with the relevant travel cards. There is also a variety of outdoor activities with emphasis on walking and hiking, plus cycling and mountain biking, with a selection of alpine resorts offering complimentary guided hikes and free cycling maps.

The operator's trips are individually tailor-made so multi-centre trips are easy to book and within the brochure there are numerous holiday ideas including ‘A Tale of Two Lakes’ which includes stays at Lakes Lucerne and Lugano with a transfer on the Gotthard Panorama Express in between.

Prices lead in at £814 per person for seven nights in Gutshof Zillertal in Mayrhofen, Austria, based on two adults sharing a romantic classic mountain view room with balcony. The price includes private transfers and flights from Gatwick to Innsbruck.
