Saalbach is located in the beautiful Kitzbuhler Alps, in the glorious Glemmtal valley. No doubt you will enjoy its breathtaking mountain scenery during your airport transfer. Get your camera ready for some nice shots.
It’s important to remember that your journey from Salzburg to Saalbach will take you to a higher altitude. This can present its own potential complications.
Salzburg airport sits at 430m, while Saalbach ski resort sits at an altitude of 1000m. Some passengers can experience mild discomfort, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness can be the symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are often the ones at risk to feel unwell.
When you combine this 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.
If you are feeling particularly unwell, the beautiful mountain scenery can be the perfect medicine for you.

At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer the best value transfers to all resorts 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.
Pricing is also affected by vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
By travelling midweek you'll enjoy lower prices, spend less time stuck in traffic and see your dream ski destination at a less frenetic time. We strongly recommend travelling midweek; this can cut your costs by up to 60%. More discounts are available for the travelling off-season and off-peak.
