At Alps2Alps, our goal is to offer competitively priced 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 depending 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 and will have more time for skiing. That is definitely worth to mention that you will spend less time stuck in traffic! We strongly recommend you travelling midweek. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak. Off-season and off-peak offers are kind to your wallet - you can save up to 60%!
We also offer low-cost ski rentals when travelling from Geneva. We have a rental store situated 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.
