Skibug does not provide flights but we do collect you from the airport. To ensure our free transfers are available please pay attention to the following conditions. For further info please click the complimentary transfers tab above.
To ensure our free transfers are available please book your arrival day flights to arrive no later than 3pm and ideally after 11am and your departure day flights to depart early afternoon (no earlier than 1pm and ideally before 3pm) to/from Geneva or Chambery.
Our free minibus transfers are based upon 8 sharing unless otherwise agreed, minibuses will be allocated to your group accordingly however when there are less than 8 in one minibus we may ask you to share with other guests and we will ensure any wait times will be kept to a minimum. In some exceptional case we may use a larger minibus or coach for our transfer service.

P&O, SeaFrance and DFDS provide ferry crossings from Dover to Calais (and DFDS to Dunkerque)
There´s a crossing from Hull to Zeebruge which sails overnight, gets you a comfortable cabin and arrives at a sensible time in the morning. It´s then around 9-10 hours to the Alps.
The super quick Channel Tunnel is another option from Folkestone to Calais.
It’s about a 9-hour drive from both Calais and Dunkerque to La Plagne or Les Arcs.
Other crossing points exist such as Newhaven to Dieppe or Portsmouth to St. Malo.
There are free public car-parks very close to each of our chalets in La Plagne and free private parking right outside the chalet in Les Arcs.
