At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer amazing value transfers to all ski resorts in the Alps. We like to take a transparent approach to price structure. We take a number of factors into consideration when calculating our prices. These 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 and never increase them.
The transfer price 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 an impressive 60% and see your ski destination at a less frenetic time, we highly recommend travelling midweek. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak. Travelling during the off-peak season can mean also cheaper flights and cheaper hotels. See more information on our website!
