YSE TRANSFERS 2022-23
We offer transfers between Geneva Airport and Val d’Isere d’Isère, at £35 per transfer (£25 for babies).
These transfers are only available to those who have booked a holiday with YSE for the dates applicable.
From Geneva to Val d’Isère: the first coach leaves at 14.00 and the second at 16.00.
NB. On Mondays throughout December 2022 and on 2 and 9 January 2023 the second transfer leaves slightly later at 16.30. This enables those arriving on the Easyjet flight landing at 15.20 to take this transfer (unless it’s very delayed – see below).
We advise you to leave 90 minutes between the scheduled landing time of your aircraft and the coach departing, to give you time to get through security, collect your bags, met our reps and walk to the coach (which won’t be right outside the terminal).
From Val d’Isère to Geneva: the first coach leaves at 07.30 and the second at 10.00
We advise you to book a flight departing after 12.30.
These transfers must be booked in advance and paid with the balance of your holiday. You must tell us which bus(es) you want to book – we do not need your flight details.
Skiers know that heading high into the Alps in the middle of winter is fraught with difficulties. Fog in Britain, French Air Traffic Control, snow at Geneva, passport control, baggage handling, avalanches across the road – anything and everything can happen! If thirty people’s flights were delayed we would certainly wait for them; if two people were late, we probably couldn’t. We ask Party Leaders to ring John Yates-Smith at Geneva (+33 609 460 741 or +33 616 480 406) to warn him of any serious delay. He has been organising travel to and from Geneva for over 40 years, but he doesn’t have a magic wand. If your flight is seriously delayed, we can’t make everyone else wait. If you cannot meet the pre-booked coach, sadly you will have to make your own way to the resort. We recommend insurance including cover for travel disruption, which should reimburse the cost of a taxi (always available at Geneva Airport, though horribly expensive).
The journey from Geneva Airport to Val d’Isère lasts less than three hours, giving you time to hear our infamous up-to-date information CD, which covers everything from current snow conditions to the best restaurants. On arrival in Val d’Isère the coach will stop as close as possible to your chalet. Your chalet staff will walk you to the chalet (sensible footwear will help) while our Land Rovers take your bags.
Over the years we have seen traffic delayed by all of the problems listed above, with the journey once taking two days! This is extremely rare, but always possible. We can accept no liability when coaches are delayed by matters beyond our control, and again guests must ensure that their travel insurance covers them for costs incurred due to travel disruption.
