At Alps2Alps we offer two different types of transfers; private and shared.
Our private transfers are perfect for individuals, groups up to 8 people and families with children. With a private transfer, there is zero waiting time as your driver will meet & greet you at arrivals and escort you to your transfer vehicle.

If you’re looking for the cheapest route to the Alps, a shared transfer is a great alternative.
