Keep in mind that your journey from Geneva Airport to Les Contamines Montjoie will take you to a higher altitude. If you’re not used to it, you could be susceptible to altitude sickness.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while Les Contamines Montjoie sits at an altitude of 1164m. Some passengers can experience discomfort, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are often the ones especially prone to feeling unwell.
When you combine such air pressure change with steep, serpentine roads, 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.
Of course, it is not the best feeling in the world when you are not feeling well, but the stunning views of the mountains can be the perfect medicine for you.

At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer the best value transfers to all ski resorts in the Alps. We tend to take a transparent approach to our price structure. We take a number of factors into consideration when calculating our quotes. These important 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.
