At Alps2Alps, our main goal is to offer each and every one of our customers the amazing value transfers to all ski resorts in the Alps. We like to take a transparent approach to price structure. A number of factors should be taken 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.
