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 :-)

Great, we've got a few of those left over from our last Euro trip.

We only drive to/from Morzine so if we have a petrol car (we get an EV from Europcar if they’re not too expensive cos we have a charger at the apartment) we just fill up at the 24hr place 50m before the entrance to P51 parking (where you return the hire car to). Because we’ll only have done 100 miles or so the difference in cost to refill is minimal and the convenience of topping up on the airport is great. But we prefer an ID3 electric if the cost is within £30 or so as the elec top up is about three quid and you don’t have to return it full.

I have fast track for GVA as part of EJ Plus and the benefit of it is it’s a separate channel, unlike Leeds and Manchester, so you don’t tend to get people rushing for flights marched to the front. I don’t think I’ve ever been more than 10 minutes.

Re the trolleys a word of warning - recently coming back from hire car place after a horrendous delay on the road, the bus driver jumped out and offered to get us 3 trolleys, I gave him 3x2eur coins only when we went to return the trolleys later did we realise he had swapped them for some random worthless coins. Only 6eurs yes and clearly my stupidity, but left rather a sour taste in our mouths, esp as we had given him 5eurs to say thank you and how kind it was of him to help what was a clearly hassled and rushed looking family. Did the same trick on our friends returning later the same day.

Thats bizarre (I hope it wasnt the 2p we left in a trolley when we had to abandon one). You can't think its worth it for a few euro, as you'd think at some point someone will report him and I didnt think that was typical Swiss behaviour.

Yes it was weird! Sure it wasnt your 2p as he took our coins and made out that he was using them in the trolleys. It did seem a rather elaborate scam for a few euros.

@trmacc, sorry to hear that happened, but hopefully that was the worse thing/extra expense that happened on your holiday and the rest was a good time.

Sadly not quite as KLM lost our skis, but didn't admit to it till we'd waited over an houd. So really late into resort and then mad rush on first morning to hire kit etc, then 2hrs scouring resort on 2nd day after they wrongly said they'd been delivered. Finally arrived end of day three. That said we had an amazing holiday with 14 members of my family all over together for first time in ages so all in all a great trip!

Hi,
I just flew back to Gatwick from Geneva yesterday (Fri) at 7:10pm. Managed to squeeze in a quick 2 day trip to end my season. I went carry on so can't comment on bag drop etc, but security at 5:30pm was under 10 minutes. There was no queue to get through the passport check on the way to the gate.
For lounges I checked out the Horizon lounge and it was ok for a cold beer and an average sandwich but nothing amazing. There's a new lounge called Crystal Aspire by gate C53. Our easyJet flight was from C55 so pretty convenient but it closed at 6pm so couldn't go in. But from peeking inside, it looks a lot nicer than the horizon lounge so if you're flight is out of the c gates it could be worth a look.
