If your infants sits in a baby seat, they will need to book a seat on our bus as a Child.

Grenoble Airport is an efficient little airport. It generally only takes about 30 minutes to get off the plane, collect your bags and get onto our bus.
We understand that flights can be delayed and we try to be as flexible as we can be with this. Our bus will wait for you as long as you are on our bus within 30 minutes of its scheduled departure time. After that, our bus may have to leave as it needs to be back in the resort to run another transfer out of Chamrousse. However, in the rare instance we have to leave without you on-board, we will always try our hardest to get you on the next bus at no extra cost. We have many shuttles going back and forth each day and we have an excellent record of getting our customers to the resort. Our staff will always go the extra mile for our customers and it is extremely rare that things go wrong.
