It’s important to remember that your journey from Lyon to Meribel will take you to extremely high altitude. This can present its own potential risks and complications.
Lyon airport sits at an altitude around 200m, while the main village of Meribel is at 1700m. This journey can present some of the passengers with mild discomfort. Nausea, headaches and dizziness can be the symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are the ones especially prone to feeling unwell.
When you combine this air pressure change with steep and serpentine roads, the journey can become difficult. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
If you are feeling unwell, the beautiful mountain scenery can work as a perfect medicine for you.

At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer reliable 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
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.
The transfer price 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 the costs, spend less time stuck in traffic and avoid crowds, we highly 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 off-peak season always means better deals, cheaper flights and hotels. Take a look on our website!
