   TUI / Crystal        done turns into a free holiday (very complicated).

Unless otherwise stated, all above jobs are assumed to include the 'standard package' offered by Tour Operators.
The package should include: travel from a UK departure point to resort, accommodation, lift pass for the local area, medical insurance,
rental ski equipment*, and meals.

Unless otherwise stated, wages are assumed to be paid into UK bank accounts and the payroll processed in the UK.
Bonuses can sometimes include retainers (an amount of your weekly wage withheld by the employer until you complete the season) and
holiday pay, or they may entirely be a performance-related reward.

Some Tour Operators appear to pay a larger wage but then reclaim an amount for 'the package' a few days later via Direct Debit. For
clarity, all figures quoted above are the net amount, i.e. £wages - £deduction = £cash in pocket.
