Saved by the Driver: Martin and Claudia’s Ski Trip Story

Family ski trip story

We’ve all heard nightmare accounts of ski travel disasters, but somehow, we never think it’s going to happen to us!

From heavy traffic on the roads to adverse weather, sometimes elements out of our control can cause havoc en-route to skiing in the Alps.

One family who had some unfortunate luck, is Alps2Alps transfer customers Martin and Claudia, who ran into heavy traffic on the way back from their budget ski trip in the French Alps.

Here’s their ski trip story, and how an Alps2Alps transfer driver saved the day.

Claudia and Martin’s Story: The Dilemma

“We left in time from Valmeinier ski resort in the French Alps at 6.30 am in the morning for a 10.50 am flight from Geneva airport, back to London, Luton.

We made very good headway until Annecy where unfortunately a large truck transporting cars caught fire. The motorway was closed off in two directions and everyone was redirected through Annecy, a beautiful town, however absolutely not up to so much traffic.”

One Determined Alps2Alps Transfer Driver

“What impressed us from Alps2Alps was that the driver was in constant contact redirecting us to the most efficient route. Where traffic was absolutely impossible, our driver rerouted us. The driver showed sheer determination to get us to the airport, was a very safe driver, and we felt like we were in excellent hands.”

Transfer Nightmare Averted
