Here’s everything you need to know about your journey, from plane to resort, and some important reasons why you can rely on Alps2Alps for your airport transfer.
Usually, transfers from Chambery to Meribel take around 2 hours, depending on road conditions, the weather and your time of travel. Heavy traffic or adverse weather conditions can change this journey time and potentially cause delays.
We strongly recommend travelling midweek to cut down on your journey time, as during weekends, the roads are much busier. .
Chambery is the nearest airport to Meribel (102 km). The standard route will take you via the A43 (E70) motorway to Albertville. Continue on the N90 to Moutiers and take the D90 mountain road up to Meribel. This journey offers you amazing mountain views. But, always ask your driver about the best possible route.
You don’t need to go straight to the resort. If you want to stop off at any stage during the transfer to stretch your legs or have a cup of coffee, we’ll happily accommodate this.

It’s important to remember that your journey from Chambery to Meribel will take you to a very high altitude. This can present its own potential complications and problems.
Chambery airport sits at around 235m above sea level, and the main village of Meribel at 1700m. The journey may cause some passengers mild discomfort such as nausea, headaches and dizziness, all symptoms associated with a sudden change in altitude. Young children are especially prone to feeling unwell.
This altitude change, combined with steep and winding roads, means the journey can be challenging. If necessary, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
If you do feel unwell, the beautiful mountain scenery can be the perfect medicine!
Meribel ski resort is nestled in the heart of the largest ski area in the world: the 3 Valleys. Your ski pass gives you access to around 150km of pistes, served by 61 ski lifts.

Any available discounts
When calculating fares, we start with our standard price and then make reductions based on the factors listed above. This dynamic approach means we only ever decrease our prices – never increase them.
Your quote is also affected by vehicle availability, the transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
Midweek transfers are cheaper – you can cut your costs by up to 60%. Nobody likes to spend time stuck in traffic, so if you want to avoid the crowds, we strongly recommend that you travel in the middle of the week.
