Alps2Alps offers excellent value transfers to all ski resorts in the Alps. We like to take a transparent approach to our pricing structure. We take a number of factors into consideration when calculating our quotes. These 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.
By travelling midweek you'll lower your costs up to 60%, avoid the crowds and, most importantly, will have more time for skiing. We highly recommend you to travel in the middle of the week. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak – that also means cheaper flights and cheaper hotels. Take a look at our website!
