At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer reliable and affordable airport transfers to all ski 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 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. All of the above will only ever result in our base-rate for ski transfers going down – we never over-inflate our prices.
Your transfer quote will also depend on vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
If you want to lower the costs, travel with ease and spend less time stuck in traffic, we highly recommend travelling midweek. Prices can double or more if you travel on peak dates, while a midweek transfer can cut your costs by up to an incredible 60%. More discounts are available for the travelling off-season and off-peak.
