It’s important to remember that your journey from Geneva Airport to Saint-Jean d’Arves will take you to a higher altitude. Sometimes this can present its own potential complications.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while Saint-Jean d’Arves ski resort sits at an altitude of 1600m. Some passengers can experience mild discomfort, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness can be the symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are often the ones at risk to feel unwell.
When you combine this 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.
The beautiful mountain scenery can be the perfect medicine for you if you are feeling particularly unwell.

At Alps2Alps, we aim to offer the best value 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 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 see your magical ski destination at a less frenetic time. We strongly recommend travelling midweek, because this can cut your costs by up to an impressive 60%. More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak.
