At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer a higher level of service and comfortable airport transfers to all ski destinations in the Alps. We like to take a transparent approach to price 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.
The airport transfer price is also affected by vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
We strongly advise you to travel in the middle of the week. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak. Travelling during off-peak season always means better deals, cheaper flights and hotels. We highly recommend it if you want to lower the costs, spend less time stuck in traffic and avoid crowds.
