Travel Options to Courchevel
Booking with us means that you can organise your own travel arrangements to suit you and your party.
We don’t book your travel for you but we are more than happy to provide advice regarding the best way to travel to resort.
Travel by Air
With low-cost airlines operating regular services from many UK airports to France, this is often the best value and most convenient way to travel.
There are 4 main airports within easy travel distance to Courchevel:
Lyon St Exupery
Please note that Chambery Airport is often the best value but can often be closed due to poor weather conditions over the lake resulting in flights diverted to Turin or Geneva.
Small Groups of 1-4 people
For groups of 4 or less we always recommend self-drive. It is the most cost-effective way of getting to resort and you can hire fully equipped cars (snow tyres &/or chains) at Geneva, Lyon or Chambery Airports. Please ask us for self-drive directions to Courchevel.
From Geneva Airport we have negotiated a discounted rate with rhinocarhire.com. Please click here to book & benefit from a 5% discount.
For other airports we recommend:
Shared Transfers - Le Van Rouge (3 Vallee Transfers)
3vt.co.uk operate a scheduled shared transfer service to & from Geneva Airport on Saturday and Sunday called the "Le Van Rouge".
This will be a great alternative to small groups of 1-4 travelling to resort who don't want to drive themselves and want to share a transfer to reduce costs of getting to resort.
Please contact John for more information.
