Airport Transfer prices for two companies  :

These prices are from four companies we use regularly.  They are very competitive which is why we are happy to recommend them.  However, they do get booked up quickly so if you are interested just let me know and I will ask them to contact you direct.

Please note that if your flight involves very early or very late pick ups then an extra 50 euros is payable.

Car Hire

Don’t forget to order snow chains, these are required by law.  Also don't forget to add on the cost of insurance, damage waiver costs, snow chains, fuel and tolls.

Check that the chains are the right size (very important).  If you do need to put them on, then stop on the flat, preferably under a street lamp and have with you an old pair of gloves, a torch, the instructions and a sense of humor!

IMPORTANT : do not follow the signs up to La Plagne as this adds about 1.30 hours onto your journey.  Follow signs for Aime, Landry and then Montchavin, Les Coches.

If you have booked with a certain airline it might be worth looking at the other hire companies that are not linked to the airline you have booked your flight through as you may have to queue for ages as everybody will be doing the same.  Alternatively, one of you collects your bags while the other person goes straight to the car hire desk.
