Shared Airport Transfers £28 each way

For the winter season 2019-20, we have entered into a partnership with Alpybus, who have recently combined with Megève Express to create the largest Geneva airport transfer company.  As a result of our partnership agreement they have increased the number of direct Geneva-Megève scheduled transfers to nearly 200 vehicles each week. In addittion they have numerous services to nearby Sallanches from where we can pick you up. They have a fleet of more than 100 vehicles ranging form 8 seat minibuses to 50 seat coaches so have flexibility to rearrange schedules as a result of flight delays and cancellations.  Alpybus also has an arrangement with Geneva airport to pick up guests at the main terminal, so avoiding the long walk to the car park, which clients of other transfer companies experience.

We also have our own minibuses to cover peak periods and emergencies.

On shared transfers, several parties of guests may travel in the same vehicle.  This means that you may have to wait for other guests, but we do aim to minimise this.  So if you arrive in the morning and wish to ski the same day we will do our best to get you to Megève as quickly as possible. Our aim is within 2 1/2 hours of your flight landing.

When you book your transfer through us, we will book you on an Alpybus transfer departing about an hour after you land. For departures, we will book for you to depart from Megève between 3 and 4 hours before your flight.  

If your flights do not fit in with an Alpybus direct transfer, we may book you on an indirect service to Sallanches (20 mins away) and pick you up from there, if that will get you to Megeve more quickly. Or if there are other guests arriving or leaving at a similar time we may transport you in one of our own minibuses.

If your flight is late your transfer may have to leave without you and you may have to wait.  We know that is very irritating when you have already been delayed, but the increased capacity that our partnership with Alpybus brings means that they will have the flexibility to reschedule and get you to Megève as quickly as possible.

If you want an absolute guarantee that you will not have to wait on arrival, then you should take a taxi from the rank at the airport. This usually costs 250-350 Euros.

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

Private Transfers from £200 each way

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 - 8 passengers £200,   9-13 passengers £300,  14-16 Passengers £390.

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.
