If you are arriving from Grenoble Airport on a morning transfer, or are leaving the resort on an evening transfer, you will probably want to make use of this and get an extra half day's skiing in. However, in our experience, most residences in France will not give out their keys until about 4pm and will then ask you to leave before 10am - Which means you are stuck hanging around in resort looking after your luggage - when you should be skiing.
However, if you are on a Ben’s Bus ski transfer on a Saturday, you need not worry. We have teamed up with Smithys Tavern in Alpe D'Huez and Le Brasilien in Les Deux Alpes to provide you with a secure baggage storage service. All our customers arriving on our morning transfer from Grenoble Airport, or leaving resort for Grenoble Airport on the evening transfer will have the opportunity to leave their bags in a dedicated area for the day.
The bar staff at Smithys Tavern will keep an eye on your bags. You can fill up on some breakfast and then head out onto the slopes for an afternoons' skiing. Just make sure you are back with your bags before 6pm – in time for happy hour.
The Brasilien bar in Les Deux Alpes will open especially for our customers at 10:30am on a Saturday morning so you can leave your bags there for the day. The close again at 4pm. We'll also give you VIP cards for the Brasilien which will give discounted drinks and access to the opening party every Sunday. Doors open at 11pm and Ben's Bus customers get a special welcome as well as discounted drinks.
There is a paid for Baggage Store in Tignes. Details of this can be found at the Tourist Office who run the service.
Please note, whilst every care will be taken to ensure only you access your luggage, you leave your items there entirely at your own risk. Neither Ben's Bus Ltd nor Smithys Tavern nor the Brasilien Bar will be held liable for any loss, theft or damage to your possessions.
You should not leave any valuables in your bags.
