With 8 years of experience running this route, we know exactly when the traffic is expected to be bad and when it is going to be free flowing. With mountainous weather being as unpredictable as it is, we allow a generous amount of time to get you to the airport in time for your flight. We also know the cheeky short-cuts to bypass the busy roads on busy days. Ben's Bus has special permission to use the Grenoble bus lanes so sometimes we will make a detour to use these when we think it will save us time.
However, you do not need to worry about any of this. All you need to do is select your flight from the list and we'll do the rest! The times of our buses will appear and you will automatically be put on the right bus for you

Infants Under 2
Infants under 2 may sit on their parents laps as the journey usually only takes about 1hr 45 minutes. You therefore do not need to book or pay for a seat if they are to sit on your lap. However, we would ask you to email us their name so we have a full list of passengers. Please note that you would not be able to sit on any of the front seats.
If you would prefer your child to sit in a baby seat, we regrettably cannot provide these and so we will need you to bring your own. If your infant sits in a baby seat, you will need to book them on our bus as a Child and then email us so we can reserve an appropriate seat for you.
Children Aged 2 - 11
Children between 2 and 11 receive a 10% discount when booking. We unfortunately cannot provide booster seats so we would advise customers to bring their own.
Children 12 and over
Children 12 years and over must pay the full adult fare. We're still pretty cheap at £42.80pp Return so hopefully you'll still decide to bring them with you?
Grenoble Airport is an efficient little airport. On week-days, when there are few flights arriving, it generally only takes about 20 minutes to get off the plane, collect your bags and get onto our bus. On week-ends it can take a bit longer.
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 Les Deux Alpes. 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.
