At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer each and every one of our customers the best 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 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 depending 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.
By travelling midweek you'll enjoy quieter roads, which means a quicker drive, avoid the crowd, queues for bag drop and security are shorter if you’re heading out by plane etc. We strongly recommend that you 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.
