It’s important to be aware that your journey from Chambery to Les Gets will take you to a very high altitude. This may present its own potential complications such as altitude sickness.
Chambery airport sits at around 235m, while Les Gets is nestled at 1170m. Some of the passengers can experience mild discomfort, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are especially at risk to feeling unwell.
At high altitudes, when you combine this air pressure change with a steep, serpentine and challenging road, the transfer journey can be a little more difficult. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
If you are feeling particularly unwell, stunning views over the surrounding mountains can act as the perfect medicine.

At Alps2Alps, our main aim is to offer the best value airport transfers to the slopes. We tend to take a transparent approach to pricing structure. We take a number of factors into consideration when calculating our prices. Those factors include:
The number of people travelling
The day and time you travel
Any discounts available
When calculating fares, we start with our standard price and then reduce this based on the factors mentioned above. This dynamic approach means we only ever decrease our prices – never increase them.
Pricing is also affected by vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
If you want to lower your costs up to 60%, spend less time stuck in traffic and travel with ease, we highly recommend travelling midweek. More discounts are available for the travelling off-season and off-peak. Travelling during the off-peak season can mean also cheaper flights and cheaper hotels. Check available discounts on our website.
