Donate to the East Africa Crisis

Posted 15th March 2017

LET’S HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

As we’re sure many of you know, East Africa is now suffering a humanitarian crisis. Millions of people are now living without clean water, food and medicine and are facing the prospect of starvation.

Ben’s Bus is proud to be part of the generous heritage of the UK – and you can be too. The UK government has pledged to match any donations from the public up to the tune of £5 million, so let’s all help to reach that target by donating to the DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal.

East Africa Crisis Donations

Ben’s Bus tries to align its charitable actions with its values. We believe that by travelling with us on larger shared vehicles, you’re helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of skiers. Ben’s Bus makes regular contributions to SolarAid, amongst other charities, which further helps reduce CO2 emissions. To compliment our charitable ethos, we’ve just donated £250 to the East Africa Crisis Appeal in the hope it will make a difference.

Heavy Snow Falls Across The French Alps!

Posted 8th March 2017

MASSIVE SNOW DUMP HIT THE FRENCH ALPS IN TIME FOR A SPRING EXTRAVAGANZA

 

Tignes, Val Thorens, Val d’Isere, Meribel, Alpe d’Huez…..pretty much all the French Alps have seen more than a metre of snow in the last week. With temperatures remaining low, and more snow predicted, it’s never been a better time to get a spring ski break booked.

Spring Snow Airport TransfersAfter some sporadic snowfall this year, the French Alps have just been subjected to an onslaught of prolonged powder dumps, setting us up for what is looking like an amazing spring. The sun is shining and the temperatures are still in the sub-zeros so if you’re heading out this week, lucky you. If you’ve booked to come out later in the season, many resorts have a great base of snow so it should last for a while yet. Val Thorens, for instance, has a base of 275cm at the summit, with snow conditions described as “packed powder”. Check out the weather report for Tignes below.

Snow on Transfer Day 14th January

Posted 13th January 2017

SNOWFALL DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR BUS TRANSFER TIME

 

This is a message for all our customers heading back to the airport on our ski transfers tomorrow, Saturday 14th January.

Ski Transfers Leave on Time SnowThe snow is set to continue to fall heavily overnight. However, the forecast is for it to calm down in the early hours of Saturday morning.

We have already built in a level of contingency in our bus times to deal with this kind of weather and the traffic is not expected to be particularly heavy tomorrow. For this reason, all our buses are still scheduled to leave at the time as stated on your eTickets. We have prepared our drivers and reps for the conditions. Walking with bags through snow takes longer than you think and we will not be able to wait for any late-comers. We are therefore advising customers to give themselves plenty of time in order to get to our bus stop 15 minutes before the departure time, as stated on your eTicket.

 

If you are reading this whilst on the piste – you lucky thing – enjoy all this lovely snow.

BEN’S BUS LAUNCHES NEW CHARITY INITIATIVE!

 

Ben’s Bus Airport Ski Transfers are delighted to announce a new initiative to boost their support of their favourite charities! Read more about it here

 

bens bus airport ski transfers charitiesBen’s Bus has been donating to various charities and helping out our young stars for a few years now. This year, we’ve upped the ante a little by giving our customers the opportunity to give a little themselves too. We’ve updated our booking system so that you can now select to donate a small amount to our charities each time you book an airport ski transfer with us. If you do, Ben’s Bus will match that amount, so effectively doubling your contribution!

Book your airport transfer from Genoble Airport, Geneva Airport or Lyon Airport to any of our ski resort destinations and on the page where you put the passenger details, you will have the option to tick the box to donate to charity,

Ben’s Bus To Support British SnowSports Athletes

Posted 4th October 2016

BEN’S BUS TO HELP YOUNG SNOWSPORTS STARS TRAIN FOR THE WINTER OLYMPICS!

 

Ben’s Bus is delighted to support a brand new initiative aimed at helping young British Snowsports Athletes.

 

British Ski and Snowboard FoundationBen’s Bus has been helping out our young stars for a few years now by offering free seats on our shared ski transfers out of Geneva Airport and Grenoble Airport to a few select athletes so they can train in resort. Now we’ve gone a step further. We’ve become an official supporter of this new and exicting fundraising idea, The British Ski & Snowboard National Foundation. We’re hoping that this will raise the profile of skiing in Great Britain whilst helping to fund our up-and-coming starlets. The bonus – all you snowsports fans will hopefully have something to cheer about at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics!

 

Ben’s Bus does also give to other charitable causes, including Shelter, SolarAid and WaterAid. For the 2016 / 2017 ski season however, we will be changing the way we give to charities in the hope that we can increase the total amount these good causes receive from us. When you book with us, we will now ask you if you would like to donate a small amount towards our preferred charities. If you do, Ben’s Bus will match your donation. At the end of the ski season, Ben’s Bus will divide the total amount equally between the 4 charities and will present all our chosen charities with a lump sum donation on behalf of Ben’s Bus and our customers.

 

We will announce more details about this soon.
