When travelling at high altitudes, it’s important to know that this can present some passengers with mild discomfort.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while Sainte Foy sits at an altitude of 1,550m. Nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are often those at risk to feel especially 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.

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.
By travelling midweek you'll enjoy lower prices, spend less time stuck in traffic and most importantly, will have more time for skiing. We strongly recommend you travelling midweek. A midweek transfer can save you up to an impressive 60%. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak.
We also offer low-cost ski rentals when travelling from Geneva. We have a rental store in Albertville. We will then pick you up from the airport and take you to the rental store to have your equipment fitted before continuing your journey to the resort.
Choosing the right equipment will make a huge difference to your skiing comfort. If your equipment isn’t quite right, you can exchange it with minimal hassle or fuss.
