Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

From Geneva airport to Chamonix, cheapest way?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello guy
I plan to visit Chamonix in France soon. How to get there from Geneva airport to Chamonix.
So from Geneva aiport I can take transfer, bus or train I found out from geneva-chamonix.com
Do you know some tricks how to get to Chamonix cheaply or even for free. Maybe I can give 10 euros to transfer driver or somehow to sneak to a train.

Write something if you know something

I considered that option it's about 100km to walk from geneva airport to chamonix. I can go onfoot and try to stop cars to get a lift.

@gits22,

Cheapest legitimate travel is Easybus, afaik.

A friend regularly cycles.

But I guess then you'd need a bike.

I used easybus from London to airport. If I change a destination in my old ticket . In Geneva aiport I show it to a driver and go to Chamonix for free. I do not think theu have passangers list. I think it is the best transfer from geneva.

@gits22, I bet they do have passenger lists. Geneva rules mean they can't (at least, if following the rules) take walk up passengers.

You can use the Altibus, from Geneva Airport. Its the cheapest method, but timings may not be ideal.

If you get on the train without a ticket and get caught (which you will), you may discover the third most expensive way to get to Chamonix, after helicopter and taxi.

Easybus do (usually) check tickets thoroughly - often people are waiting for spare seats on a bus other than the one they've booked, so drivers check in all the people booked on the bus first, then allocate spare seats. That's not to say the odd driver occasionally doesn't, but it's not common. And you can't buy tickets at the airport (in theory - you sometimes get away with it...), so you might end up stuck.

(and word is Easybus and a few others are now under new management, and things will shortly be getting much better organised anyway...)

Cheapest options: blablacar - normally around 10EUR, maybe less. Or easybus booked way in advance can be done for 5EUR. Or hitch-hiking.

@fixx, easybus quoting £11 one way (or so) on their website as the cheapest.

When are you going to Chamonix, and where are you staying? I'd like to know so I can be sure I have my skis locked up tight when you are about just in case you're looking for free ski "hire" as well.

I have not tried this myself, but here is a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a fox:

Request a seat on your flight next to the emergency exit.
Take a parachute in your hand luggage.
Wait till mont blanc heaves into view.
Tell the person next to you to make sure their seatbelt is fastened.
Then follow the instructions for operating the door that were in the safety briefing before take off.
Saves all that nonsense at the airport too - so will be quicker as well as cheaper.
Happy holidays.
