Airport & Rail Transfers

Arrival and departure days

Access to our chalets on arrival day is from 15:00hrs onwards.  If you arrive earlier you are welcome to deposit your luggage in the garage/hallway and then explore the local area.  There is a free ski bus which connects the Courchevel villages.

On departure day please vacate bedrooms by 10:00hrs.  If you wish to ski on your day of departure then you are welcome to use an area in the chalet to change out of your ski gear at the end of skiing.


Travel to resort

We would kindly request that all our guests make their own flight or travel arrangements.  Please make sure you let us know your exact arrival details (including flight numbers, departure and arrival airports and departure and arrival times or train information) and we will arrange your transfer to and from the resort.

Would you please advise your mode of travel to the UK office at the time of booking your holiday.  If you don’t book transfers when making your original booking and wish to add them in later we will do our best to provide transfers but unfortunately cannot guarantee these.


Transfers

Due to Brexit restrictions we will not be in a position to operate our standard minibus transfers from Geneva with our skivo2 drivers any longer.  We will arrange coach transfers or taxis so the wait at the airport may be longer and these transfers will be more expensive than those from French airports.

We will be providing transfers from Grenoble, Lyon and Chambery (minimum of 4 people on a transfer) – again we will group transfers together but the wait is likely to be shorter (but not guaranteed) as we will be able to send our own minibuses to French airports and less expensive than the Geneva transfers.

We will continue to do our very best to minimise your waiting time as much as possible.

We are well aware that your transfer from the airport to the resort is a critical part of your holiday. No one likes sitting on a bus waiting for other flights. We have numerous minibuses available for our French transfers and our drivers do their utmost to make sure you are picked up promptly and taken directly to our chalets – we work extremely hard in making sure this part of your holiday works smoothly and efficiently.   Depending on the number of guests being transferred, we do charter larger coaches when required.

Please note that our transfers only operate on Saturdays and, unless specifically prebooked and prepaid, they are shared transfers and are not private transfers.  Our Transfer Section work very hard to ensure a minimum waiting time at the airport for our guests but they do also need to ensure that transfers fit in with other arrivals (which sometimes does necessitate a wait at the airport).

If you are travelling with infants please make sure that you request a car seat if one is required specifying either front facing, rear facing or booster seat. Infants are charged the standard fee for their return transfer as detailed below and we are pleased to provide car seats free of charge.

If you arrange to fly to another airport then we will be unable to provide a return airport transfer for you.

** Please note that a minimum of 4 people must be travelling together on the same flights for us to provide transfers for Chambery, Grenoble or Lyon airports (please speak to our UK office to confirm that a transfer from and to one of these airports is possible before booking your flights).

Please check with our UK office before making your flight bookings if your arrival or departure times are outwith 09:30hrs – 18:00hrs on the Saturday. If you book flights outwith these times then we are unable to guarantee you an airport transfer.

Arrival Flights

Please bear in mind that our minibus transfers are typically only available for flights landing between 09:30hrs – 18:00hrs on Saturdays.

If you wish to book a flight which lands earlier than 09:30hrs then we are happy to meet you from 10:00hrs onwards and you can enjoy a coffee in the airport whilst waiting (no additional surcharge would apply).

For arrivals after 18:00hrs then a surcharge in addition to the standard transfer charge (as detailed above) will apply if we are able to arrange a transfer for you up until 20:00hrs. After 20:00hrs or if we were unable to provide a transfer between 18:00hrs – 20:00hrs then a private transfer, at your cost, would be required. However, if we were unable to arrange this we would ask you to make your own arrangements for travel to resort from the airport.

Departure Flights

Our first minibuses leave resort around 05:30hrs/06:00hrs and our last minibus leaves resort around 13:00hrs to return guests to the airport for their homeward flights.

For flights departing later in the evening your transfer would still depart around 13:00hrs.  If you wish a later return transfer then please check with the UK office if this can be provided at a surcharge (as detailed below) in addition to the standard transfer charge .

Please note that for returns to the various airports we will always leave a generous amount of time for the transfer journey, check-in and onward transit through the airport.

It should be noted that as a result of any delay owing to accident, traffic conditions, weather, guest lateness or any other incident out of the control of skivo2, then skivo2 will not be liable for any additional costs incurred due to missed flights.


Transfers from the train station

If you decide to travel by train then we collect and return to Moutiers Salins de Bains train station to coincide with the twice daily arrival and departure times of the Eurostar.

Please note that our collection time on Saturday morning from Moutiers train station is 07:15hrs.   The overnight Euorstar arrives around 05:30hrs and there are cafes where you can wait and have a coffee. We would then be delighted to take you to resort and to your chalet to drop off our luggage.  Chalet access is from 15:00hrs onwards on arrival day.

If you are arriving during the day in to Moutiers train station then you are able to either catch the ski bus to Courchevel or take a taxi.

Private transfers

If you are a small group we can arrange a private transfer to and from the airport. Cost £560 one way for private transfer for Chambery, Grenoble or Lyon airports and £640 one way for Geneva airport.  Please contact our UK sales office if you are interested in this type of transfer.

These prices are based on the provision of an 8 seater minibus or private taxi.
