By Air
Skibug provides free airport transfers in our minibuses from Chambery or Geneva airports, transfer times vary from 1.5hrs to 3hrs depending on resort, traffic and weather conditions.  
Complimentary airport transfers are subject to availability so please check with us before you book your flights.
Aim to arrive in the afternoon (between 2pm and 5pm) and depart the following week in the early afternoon (between 1pm and 3pm).


By Rail
The ultra-handy Eurostar goes from London Kings Cross straight to the Alps.
We provide free transfers in our minibuses to La Plagne,  Les Arcs, Tignes and Les Menuires from the train stations of Aime, Landry, Bourg St Maurice or Moutiers.
Journey times from Aime to La Plagne - 30 mins.
From Bourg St. Maurice to La Plagne - 45mins.
Landry to Les Arcs - 30 mins, 
Bourg St Maurice to Tignes 30 - 45 mins.
Moutiers to Les Menuires (Bettex) 30 - 45 mins.


By car
Driving to the Alps could be cheaper than you think!  With four of you in the car your fuel costs from the French port of Calais will be around £30 per person each way. Depending on the vehicle. 
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 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 and a little longer for Tignes.
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 chalets in Tignes, Les Arcs and the 3 Valleys (Bettex)



Skibug's complimentary airport transfers
To ensure our complimentary transfers are available, please book your arrival day flights to arrive in the afternoon no later than 2pm (our buses leave at 3pm) and book your departure day flights to depart early afternoon (between 1pm and 3pm ideally) from either Chambery (1.5 hrs) or Geneva (2.5 - 3hrs) in that order of preference/distance from chalet.
Minibuses on the day of arrival are not available before 2pm so if you book an early arrival you will have to wait.
Minibuses on the day of departure will depart before 9.00am so if you book a flight departing later than 2pm, you will have to wait at the airport.
We are not able to provide free transfers for flights departing before 1pm
Complimentary transfers are based upon 8 sharing a minibus unless otherwise agreed, minibuses will be allocated to your group accordingly.
When there are less than 8 of you in one minibus we may ask you to share with other guests. We will try to ensure any wait times will be kept to a minimum.
Transfers from/to Bourg St Maurice/Moutiers/Aime/Landry for the train station are complimentary on arrival/departure days.
Train services other than Eurostar also stop at Aime, Landry, Bourg St. Maurice and Moutiers
Only early arrivals by train or self-drive for an extra day´s skiing can be accommodated, please ask for further details (conditions apply).
Baby car seats (9mths +) and booster seats can be provided for children and infants by prior arrangement.
Complimentary transfers are not available under any other conditions and it is your responsibility that all your group members are aware of these conditions.
For delayed flights, the maximum we can wait is up to one hour after the scheduled arrival time (or no later than 6pm) in order to comply with driver hours regulations.
If your flight is delayed by more than this we will endeavour to arrange an alternative.
You will have to pay for this initially (a one way transfer is £350 per minibus) but you will normally be able to reclaim this on your travel insurance.
