How to get there
We are only 1 hour from Geneva Airport, flights can be booked all year round and cheap fares can be found particularly if booked well in advance.
Travelling from the Airport
We can provide details of local taxis/private hire companies who are English speaking. The fares should be around 30 euros each way per person, based on a minimum of 4 passengers. Alternatively you can hire a car through the following example companies.
With all hire companies, we recommend you collect the car from the Swiss side of Geneva Airport. This is the easiest way to get in and out of the airport. Alternatively it may be cheaper to hire the vevicle on the French side, however, please note that the car may not include a vignette (motorway tax disc) which may cost you an extra £20 if stopped by customs officials. Once you have hired your car, follow for France and you will then go through the border and once through, follow the A40 for Chamonix. You will come to your motorway exit about 40 minutes from leaving the airport.
Full and concise directions will be provided to you before departure.
