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 :-)

Transfers - La Plagne - advice

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Looking at a DIY trip in March to La Plagne but absolutely shocked at the transfer costs.

I knew they were expensive but I was wondering if people had suggestions on how to get from Geneva to La Plagne without spending c300 pp.

Merci

How many people? Altibus or Bensbus might be the best value options

Thanks. 2 people. I've actually come across both in my searches but neither could accommodate us. I think Ben's last bus is 1430 but we land in the evening. For some reason altibus couldn't cater for us on the return journey (Sunday 13th march).

Renting a car and driving yourselves would surely cost less than £600?

You could try Altibus. https://www.altibus.com/en/arriving-by-plane/alpskibus-shuttles/
It is also possible by train but if irc that involves 2 or 3 changes to get to Aime or Bourg St Maurice Rail station and then a local bus or Taxi

@Ryunis, You can hire a car much cheaper from Lyon than Geneva, I'm sure it would be much less than £600 even allowing for snow tyres/chains.
Update, just checked with my son, he just paid £150 for a weeks hire of a car from Lyon.

Also there are some direct trains from Lyon Exubery to Aime

Car hire in March is about £380 from the Swiss side of Geneva airport for a week. I've rented one for next week. It is more from the French side.

The train should come in pretty cheep but you may need a taxi from Aime. Have a look at the trainline.com

@Ryunis, Could you not mix and match with your transfers?
Go out on Altibus and return on the train?

It's only about 40 euros one way from Aime to Geneva airport on the train.

Have you already booked your flights?
If so what are the times?

Thanks all for your suggestions. Kind of you to help out. We've booked accom and will land Sunday pm and depart Friday pm.
Will probably do a combo, as suggested, or just bite the bullet and pay for the convenience.
Pam W, we did look at car hire but the cheapest option was c£430 so if you add on fuel, tolls (if there are any) and the faff, you're not really saving anything. I think the cost of car hire has been discussed on here also.
I even looked at Uber and their rates are broadly consistent with the transfer companies.

It might just be worth seeing if a taxi company based in your part of la plagne (rather than Geneva ) can provide a lower cost transfer . If they are dropping someone off at the airport that afternoon , for example , they might want to fill the taxi on the return trip ? Just a thought but good luck with whatever you do .

We ended up choosing https://www.alpine-shuttle.com/, 255EUR each way.

Yes car hire plus tolls and petrol was not much cheaper than a transfer. We've booked 3 Valley transfers, 460 return for family of four geneva to belle plagne.
