Peak times include New Year and all Saturdays from the 10th February to 17th March (the French holidays, when the roads are busy).

The above service will run EVERY SATURDAY throughout the 2017/18 season, starting on 16th December 2017 until the 21nd April 2018 for all arrivals into Geneva Airport.

A Simply Transfer Representative will be at the Airport every Saturday to greet our guests. Following booking of your transfer, you will receive full contact details of the Simply Transfers Airport Representative as well as emergency contact details and clear instructions on what to do when you arrive at Geneva airport.

All guests travelling on this transfer service are permitted the following luggage allowance – 1 suitcase or bag, 1 piece of hand luggage and 1 pair of skis or snowboard

The average transfer time is 3 hours, though please note this is a shared transfer service and may stop on route to Tignes les Brévières.

In keeping with our ethos at Chardons, we are able to offer the return shared transfer service with large discounts compared with other transfer providers. Return transfers to Les Brévières will cost €90 euros (approx £78) per person. Transfers one way only will cost €55 (approx £48).

To ensure you receive the benefit of the Chardon’s DISCOUNTED RATE, once you have booked your flights, contact us in the normal way either by telephone on our UK local rate number 01600 800 300 (outside the UK +44 1600 800 300) or by email to reserve your seat and make payment.

Please note, it is a strict requirement of Simply Transfers that at the time of booking we must be informed of the following information for EVERY passenger:

Simply Transfer terms of carriage can be found here – http://www.simply-transfers.net/generales-conditions .

We would like to draw your attention to the following conditions of carriage:

  • If your flight is delayed, Simply Transfers will put you on the next shuttle that has space available, without further charge.  If you were due on the last transfer and your flight was delayed, Simply Transfers will endeavour to find an alternative means of transport but cannot guarantee this, alternatively they will offer you a transfer on the next available shuttle on Sunday
  • Your official ticket will be issued in November; this must be printed in advance of arrival at Geneva or can be shown to the driver on a smart phone.
  • In the event you need to cancel your booking, refunds will only be considered (at the discretion of Simply Transfers) if cancelled at least 14 days prior to travel.
