Here are some commonly asked questions about your journey:
Your transfer from Geneva Airport can take longer due to adverse weather conditions. Bear in mind your driver will always choose the best possible route in any situation, never compromising on safety.
Also, remember that traffic can result in delays also. During peak ski season, such as school holidays, this is more likely to occur.
With our Alps2Alps app, you can track your driver’s live location - straight from your phone. With a few clicks of a button, you can see exactly where they are and how long the journey is.
This app also allows you to contact your driver directly, or our 24/7 help service.
Travelling midweek not only means quieter slopes, but also quieter roads! This means it’s more likely you’ll get to your resort in the best time possible, allowing you to spend more time skiing.
For the cheapest ski transfers, avoid weekends and school holidays. You can save as much as 60% by opting to travel midweek.
This will usually take you via Annecy. This route starts on the motorway, heading towards Annecy/Albertville.
This is quicker than continuing down the motorway towards Chambery.
Should you need to, your transfer driver can make a stop to pick up some last minute holiday supplies.
Also, if you or your children feel unwell at the high altitude, simply ask your driver to pull over.
It’s always handy to know alternative airports. Others located close to Geneva include Grenoble Airport (GNB) and Lyon Airport (LYS).

With a ski transfer, you don’t have to adhere to anyone else’s schedule. Your driver will collect you at a time that’s convenient for you, tracking when your flight gets in.
They’ll be waiting in the arrivals hall to take you to your final destination.
You simply won’t get the same level of comfort or find the same dedicated service with public transport.
With private and shared transfers, your driver will drop you off and collect you from your chosen spots. There’s no need to travel to meet them.
For some, public transport might seem to be the obvious choice. However, it can result in significant delays and less time on the slopes, due to the frequent changes and waiting around.
Using a transfer company avoids these issues, which is particularly welcome if you’re travelling in the company of younger skiers.
Nestled in the heart of the French Alps, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe and is well-loved by those going on a ski trip.
This purpose-built resort hasn’t gained its immense popularity for no reason, and here’s why:
The Three Valleys’ ski area has plenty to boast about. It’s home to over 600km of pistes and 166 ski lifts, which your lift pass will give you access to.
It’s made up of a number of world-class and infamous resorts, from St Martin de Belleville to Les Menuires. Each one offers something unique. Within this, Val Thorens stands out as one of the most popular, home to a number of delights that keep keen skiers returning year after year.

From tobogganing to helicopter rides, there really is something for everyone at this resort. Even when you’re not skiing, there’s always something to do.
Located in the Belleville Valley, the village itself is home to a number of events, shops, bars and restaurants. The resort has found the perfect balance; boasting great apres alongside a family-friendly atmosphere.
Sitting approximately 5km from the city centre, Geneva Airport is one of the busiest airports to service the Alps.
During peak season, crowds of skiers flock here in their droves. Make sure you book your airport transfer in advance to avoid any unnecessary waiting.
