At Alps 2 Alps, we aim to offer the amazing value transfers to all ski resorts in the Austrian Alps. We like to take a transparent approach to price structure. We take a number of factors into consideration when calculating our quotes. These 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.
If you want to lower your costs, spend less time stuck in traffic and see your dream destination at a less frenetic time, we highly recommend you to travel in the middle of the week. A midweek transfer can save you up to 60%. More discounts are available for the travelling off-season and off-peak.
