Transfers. Geneva - Val D'isere

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Any recommendations for transfers for 2 people from Geneva to Val D'Isere?
Cheapest transfer I can find is £600 return which seems excessive. Renting a car doesn't seem any cheaper, and the train timetables seem absolutely useless for booking any further than 2 weeks in advance. Puzzled

With just two of you, a small car will take most ski gear, rentalcars.com show various models sub €300 for 30/12 - 6/1/18 Do you need to fly to GVA? fly into Lyon and similar cars are €100 cheaper

or Bensbus.co.uk at weekends

€650 is a lot of money but is the going rate, don't forget you are asking for a winterized minibus that will take 8 and on that return you would be tying it up for a minimum of 12 hours.

@Minto, Hi Minto, two of us are booked with Ben's Bus for 15th December return from Geneva to Tignes at 84pp. That was the best price we could find and also the only company that was running transfers leaving resort T 03.30am.

Those helicopter flights are a lot cheaper than expected. But still no, ha a ha.

I was looking at Ben's Bus but the times are very poor for our flights, we'd waste 2 full days in the airport. Best option I've found is AVIS will rent us a car for the full trip for £350. Perfect for our flight times, just need to check our hotel has parking. Any one know, Hotel Christiana?

If not there are numerous underground car parks in Val where once you've unloaded you can stash it. As someone who drives all the way, I'm reminded one of the reasons why I do so by this thread!

Really? I book through Autoeurope. The rental car that gets me to Tignes each year from Geneva airport (french side) usually costs about £230 for 8 days.

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

The most I have ever paid for a car is £340 for the week and that was when I needed a Skoda Superb estate, for four people with lots of luggage.

Renting a car also means no waiting around at the airport for other flights to arrive, or getting dropped there 4 hours before your flight departs.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

For what you have been quoted, Snowdrone will chauffeur you in their Tesla Model X or Audi A6 Allroad.

It's a nicer way to travel than in a mini bus, if you really don't want to drive. http://snow-drone.com/
