A NOTE ABOUT ALL OUR TRANSFERS

  • Most of our guests make the most of low rates with budget airlines and arrange their flights to Geneva airport where they can take advantage of our set time transfer service. The journey time is usually two and a half to three hours.
  • For transfers from/to other airports or from Geneva at alternative times please discuss with our reservations office. We’ll try to help or recommend other transport or car rental companies.
  • Our transfers are not tailor made to suit individual flights.
  • We will endeavour to keep waiting times for our guests to an absolute minimum but we would recommend only using our transfers if you are completely relaxed about waiting.
  • In the event of flight delay we will, if at all possible, ask our vehicle to wait. In instances where we have a commitment to other guests, or are unable to wait, we can assist with the arrangement of alternative transport but cost of this will be borne by client (please see our Optional Travel Indemnity at the foot of this page).
  • From time to time we may arrange transfers through other companies.
  • Always check transfer timings before booking flights.
  • You will not be permitted to travel on our transport if you use abusive or inappropriate behaviour towards our staff or are considered to be inebriated.

BY CAR & TRAIN

Tignes, La Rosière and Villaroger are approximately a ten hour drive from Calais, mostly on the motorway. Driving is a good way to get to resort from the UK for seven night stays and longer as Eurotunnel and ferries offer low cost crossing rates. Motorway tolls will cost around £70.

The nearest train station is Bourg Saint Maurice, a 30 minute drive from Tignes and La Rosière and 20 minutes from Villaroger. Eurostar runs direct from London on some days or you can take Eurostar to Paris or Lille and change. If you need a transfer from Bourg Saint Maurice to one of our chalets speak to our reservations office and we’ll try to help.
