Turin/Sauze d'Oulx transfer 1st and 8th March

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Im flying in to Turin 0930 Sat 1 March (returning following Sat) and need to find a transfer from airport to Sauze.

I am aware of the bus/train/bus option but am saving that as last resort as I am carrying several sets of skis.

Anyone recommend a reasonable transfer (two of us travelling) or bus etc from the airport??

Hells Bells, sorted Smile

Found these people www.cavourese.it who do a twice daily coach from the airport (1130 and 1830) for the princely sum of €34. Result, and as it happens the journey time is only one hour whereas the bus/train/bus journey albeit €25 was not only a hassle with luggage but would have taken over two hours (and that's assuming good connections!)

Thanks all for you assistance Smile

You may be able to book a lift with Crystal. I know of others who have done it in other countries, and they were happy to take me back from Sauze to Turin in January - think they charged €25 if I recall correctly.

HI, Sorry to butt in but... could you let me know if the 34euro is return or each way? I'm thinking its probably each way. We are going in Feb and as a family of 5 its almost always cheaper to hire a car but I'd much rather be driven if I can find something affordable.

we're heading over at the end of Jan for a few days, 4 of us. I'm thinking it has to be cheaper and more convenient to rent a car?

 You know it makes sense.

It usually cheaper but not always convenient if there's a long queue or you have to faff with snow chains. Usually we park up for the week but it sounds like it might be worth using the car in Sauze to do a day trip to montgenevre. I haven't been before but I've heard its worth doing.

I got this link off the Torino Airport for the bus. 34 EUR per person. I checked car hire, it wasn't cheaper than 5 x 34 EUR...

http://www.aeroportoditorino.it/en/passeggeri_en/trasporti_en/bus_charter_en.html

Leaves the airport at 11.30 and 18.00.

I will call Crystal. @nem, When are you going, we are going 21 Feb for a week. Booked at Orso Bianco. Very looking forward to this...our base is building up nicely!

@HeidiAmsterdam, please clarify. Is that 5 x 34 EUR...return, or 5 x 34 EUR...each way = 5 x 68 EUR . . .

And do the bus times correspond nicely with your arrival/departure times?

@northantsred,

That is 5 x 68 return... so you can get a car.

I've only had bad luck with car hire in Italy, and then wanting at 1500 EUR security deposit on my card, then surprise extra add on's at the rental counter. I'm pretty savvy with car hire, and was shocked at their mafia ways..

I won't need a car once I'm there as I'm staying at Orso Bianca, so at the top of the ski lift, with half pension, so a cheap transfer would be my preference. We are 1 adult and 2 children.

I sent the owner of Bianca Orso an e-mail, she said it was 65 pp, and thought that was one way, but that must have been a return transfer...if that is my return price, then I'll probably just do that.

and BTW, I'm arriving on the 20th, via AMS on the KLM flight arriving 22:30 (ugh) and leaving March 1st on a 10:50 flight to Paris where I have to transfer. those were 200 EUR per person... so far I'm up to 268 per person, and I haven't slept, skied or had anything to eat....

@Hells Bells, I know but I've been looking for a while and there isn't much info elsewhere so I was just trying my luck here!

Do you know any info that could be of help? I'm just dreading missing flight if the train is late, need to be at Turin Airport for 8am
