Coach Travel and Early Arrival
Coach Travel to Bourg St Maurice
Packed Lunch Solutions : rather than buying pre-wrapped snadwiches on-route stop at the service stations with restaurants or a bakery offering sandwiches. A great idea is to bring your own packed lunch : my niece bought me some reusable sandwich warppers from www.re-wrap-it.co.uk . Alternatively if you already have tupperware at home then use this plus reusable water bottles. I am sure there are more ideas out there so just let me know and I will add them :)
Hot drinks on route : don't forget to bring your own reusable cup! Some service stations offer coffee not from a vending machine which is a great way to cut down on waste. Don't forget to bring your own teaspoon though as they often give you a plastic stirer.
Direct and cost effective coach travel from UK pick up points are available with Eurolines

Chalet Mathilde Catered :
If you have ordered your ski gear through www.rentalrepublic.co.uk then we will arrange for your equipment to be in the garage waiting for you. You can leave your bags in the garage.
The chalet is officially ready at about 3pm. However, if we know someone is arriving early, we try and get that room ready first – this obviously depends on what time the current guests leave the chalet and cannot be guaranteed.
1) if you are arriving on the overnight Eurostar : then we recommend you have breakfast in Bourg St Maurice. There is a bar opposite the train station that opens from 6.30am. We can then pick you up at 8.30am ish and take you to the chalet to get changed for skiing.
2) if you are arriving after 8.30am : we can arrange to pick you up if not self-drive, take you to the chalet and where you can get changed for skiing. You can leave your bags in the garage. We will give you your ski passes, then it's just a short walk/ski into the village where you can have breakfast.
