Shared Transfers Info

Shared Transfers

In keeping with our ethos at Chardons, we are able to offer a Geneva return shared transfer service with large discounts compared with other transfer providers. Return transfers to Les Brévières will cost €89 euros (approx £79) per person. Transfers one way only will cost €58 (approx £52). Shared shuttles between resort and Grenoble airport are also available. Please contact us for details.

Transfer Durations

For arrivals – to calculate your shuttle departure time, Simply Transfers advise you to allow at least one hour after your flight arrival time to get through customs. If you have ski or snowboard equipment, Simply Transfers recommend an additional 30 minutes.

For departures – Simply Transfers advise an estimated 3.5 hours for the transfer. You should aim to arrive at an airport no later than 2 hours prior to your flight departure time (To calculate your resort departure time in non peak weeks take your flight time and subtract 5.5 hours). In peak weeks Simply Transfers suggest you give yourself a minimum of three hours at the airport (so in peak weeks take your flight time and subtract 6.5 hours).

The average transfer time is between 3-3.5 hours, though please note this is a shared transfer service and may stop on route to Tignes les Brévières.

On Arrival

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.

Private Transfer Info

Private Transfers

If you are arriving into an airport other than Geneva (such as Lyon, Chambery or Grenoble), or outside of the shuttle times available, it can be more convenient to arrange a private transfer. It can also be better value for larger groups to consider private transfers to/from the resort.

Once you have booked your flights just let us know the following information and we will be happy to find you the best quote:
