Shared Airport Transfers

We are offering shared transfers to Megeve for the 2020/21 season.  Prices are £30/person each way.

For the winter season 2020/21 we will be offering shared transfers to and from Geneva airport with help from our partners Alpybus.   They will run a regular, timetabled service to and from Chamonix and will drop our guests travelling to Megeve off at the nearby village of Sallanches.  Our own staff will then meet you and transfer you the short hop up (usually around 20 mins) to Megeve in our own 8 seater minibuses. 

This is a new arrangement to us this season but we feel it will offer the best service to our guests as although it does entail changing vehicles in Sallanches, it will mean that guests will then be transferred solely to Stanford's own properties which will mean a much more direct service. 

Please check the Alpybus timetables below before booking your flight.  Alpybus work on a minimum of 45 mins to come through arrivals.

If your flight is late your transfer may have to leave without you and you may have to wait for the next timetabled transfer.  

If you do not want any wait on arrival, then Alpybus do offer private transfers, see below for prices.

If you ask us to book your transfers you agree we can share your contact data with Alpybus.

Private Transfers

If you book a private transfer you may specify it's departure time but we must be advised of your wishes at least 1 week in advance.  We do not advise booking a transfer to leave Geneva less than an hour after your flight arrival, or to depart Megève less than 3 hours before your flight departure. If you choose to do so, it is at your own risk.

On arrival, the driver will wait for up to two hours after your booked time. After that there may be a 50% rebooking charge. It is imperative that Alpybus are informed immediately about any delays so that they can reschedule and hopefully not have to charge extra.

Prices for Private transfers each way are as follows:

       1-4 passengers £170, 5-8 passengers £185,   9-13 passengers £225,  14-16 Passengers £360.

If you agree in advance that other guests may share your transfer as long as you don't have to wait for them, we will refund you £20 for any seats we can sell.

If you ask us to book your transfers you agree we can share your contact data with Alpybus.
