It’s important to understand that your journey from Geneva Airport to Flumet will take you to a higher altitude. This presents its own potential problems and complications.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while Flumet sits at an altitude of 1,000m. This journey can present some passengers with mild discomfort. Nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are the ones especially prone to feeling unwell.
As a result of the combination between steep, serpentine roads and this air pressure, the journey can be difficult for some people. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
If you are feeling unwell, the stunning mountain scenery can work as the perfect medicine for you.

At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer safe and affordable 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
All of the above will only ever result in our base-rate for ski transfers going down – 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.
Pricing 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 and avoid the crowds, we strongly recommend you to travel in the middle of the week. A midweek transfer can cut your costs by up to 60%. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak. Travelling during the off-peak season always means better deals, cheaper flights and hotels. For more information, see our website.
