What to Expect from Your Ski Transfer: A Handy Guide
Preparing for your next ski trip?
Before you head to the mountains, it’s worth going through a mental checklist to make sure nothing has been forgotten. Just like flights and accommodation, a ski transfer from the airport is a vital ingredient to complete your skiing holiday.
First time skiing? Or new to ski transfers? It’s a lot simpler than you might think.
We’ve put together this guide on what to expect from your ski transfer, so you have one less thing to worry about!
When to Book Your Alpine Ski Transfer
When is the best time to book your ski transfer? The simple answer- as soon as you’ve booked your flights!
The sooner you book your ski transfer, the wider the pool of available cars and drivers there are to choose from. This means you can pick and choose your optimum pick-up times. Booking early can also give you access to great deals and special early-bird offers!
Last-minute bookers don’t need to fear- we take bookings up to 24 hours before your arrival date!

How Much Does a Transfer Cost?
We love delighting our customers with cheap ski transfers and big deals.
We do things differently at Alps2Alps. Instead of having a fixed price, we take the following factors into consideration:
- Your arrival airport
- Your ski resort
- The number of travellers
- The type of vehicle
- Time and date of transfer
- Discounts available
This pricing method means we only ever reduce our prices- never increase them!

Once you’ve landed at your arrival airport, your transfer driver will be ready and waiting to pick you up and whisk you to your resort!
If you’ve downloaded the app, you will receive a message informing you that your driver is waiting for you. Our English-speaking drivers are a friendly bunch. They’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about the area from their vast local knowledge.
All of the Alps2Alps vehicles are positioned close to the major airports to make the process as efficient as possible.
