On average, a transfer from Geneva Airport to Abondance will take around 1 hour and 30 minutes, though this may see significant changes depending on the time of your travel. Abondance is a very popular ski resort in the French Alps, which often results in long traffic jams for a considerable part of the journey.
Alps2Alps will always do whatever possible to make sure that you are comfortable during your airport transfer. We strongly advise you to travel in the middle of the week to cut down on your journey time and maximise time on the slopes.
The direct route from Geneva Airport to Abondance (98,7km) will usually take you via route A40. On A1 and A40/E25 move towards Route de Bons en Chablais/D903 (Saint-Cergues, France).

It’s important to remember that your journey from Geneva to Abondance will take you to a very high altitude. This can present its own potential complications.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while Abondance sits at an altitude of 1,000m. Nausea, headaches and dizziness, can be the symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are especially prone to feeling unwell.
When you combine such air pressure change with steep and serpentine roads, the journey may be difficult for some people. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.

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.

Travelling during the off-peak season always means better deals, cheaper flights and hotels. Take a look at our website for more great offers!
