Charitable Donations 2018

Posted 9th May 2018

BEN’S BUS RAISES ALMOST £2, 000 FOR CHARITY!

 

bens bus airport ski transfers charitiesWe’re delighted to announce that for the 2017 / 2018 ski season, Ben’s Bus and our lovely customers managed to generate a brilliant £1, 978.50 towards good causes. That’s an increase of almost 30% from last year!

When customers book any ski transfer with us, they have the option of adding a 25p charitable donation to their booking. Ben’s Bus then matches that 25p. We’ve just downloaded our reports for the year and a MASSIVE THANK YOU goes out to all our customers who selected to give to charity. Together you raised £989.25. True to our word, we’ve matched that £989.25, giving us a total of £1, 978.50 to distribute to our chosen charities.

 

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

 

Here’s a breakdown of where the money was spent and what it gets us.

Ben's Bus Solar Aid Donation 2018

SolarAid is a charity committed to helping African villages use their natural, renewable resources to better their lives whilst making minimal impact on the environment. So your donation will help bring your carbon footprint down further! We gave them £494.62. They have a cool calculator which shows what this money does and to the right you will see the screenshot:

WaterAid is a charity with initiatives in over 37 countries around the world, helping to deliver clean water and sanitation to the most vulnerable. We gave them £494.62.

Shelter is a UK homelessness organisation. We gave them £494.62

The British Ski & Snowboard National Foundation hopes to raise the profile of skiing in Great Britain whilst helping to fund UK up-and-coming starlets. The success of this foundation can already be seen by the fantastic results at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. We gave the BSSNF £494.62

To view more details about our Charitable Ethos, please visit our Charity and Environment page.

Once again, a massive thank you to all our customers and an especially big thank you to those who’ve donated. We are sure our chosen charities pass on their sincere thanks to you too. Hopefully next year we can generate even more money for good causes. Have a fantastic summer, and we’ll see you again in the snow next ski season.

Happy Easter from Ben’s Bus

Posted 31st March 2018

HAPPY EASTER FROM ALL AT BEN’S BUS

 

Happy Easter Ben's Bus Ski TransfersWe’d like to wish all our customers a Happy Easter 2018, especially of you who are lucky enough to be travelling with us this week-end to the Alps for a snowy Easter. The conditions are amazing so you’ll be in for a fantastic week we hope.

If you’re thinking about grabbing a last minute ski break out in France, then there has never been a better time for it. The snow cover in nearly all resorts is the best it has been for years and there is more snow on the way! We still have space on some of our buses and we’ve summarised our end of season schedules below.

 

GENEVA AIRPORT: We’re running transfers every Saturday to most of our ski resorts up to the 28th April. On the 28th April we will only have buses from the resorts back to Geneva Airport. We also have buses every Sunday up to the 8th April.

GRENOBLE AIRPORT: To see what we have available to your resort, visit our Grenoble Airport Ski Transfers page and then select the resort you are interested in to see what dates we have available. Alternatively, use the online booking form below and the dates we operate on will be loaded up once you select your route.

LYON AIRPORT: Our last bus is on the 7th April and we only have buses from the resorts to the airport on this date, so try to book a flight to Grenoble or Geneva Airports instead as the transport options from Lyon, without Ben’s bus, are pretty limited.

Travel Information Saturday 17th March

TRAVELLING WITH US ON SATURDAY THE 17th MARCH???

 

Snow Saturday 3rd MarchThere’s a mini “Beast from the East” heading towards the UK again this week-end. Is this the Russian revenge they’ve been talking about? Although the weather is not expected to be anywhere near as bad as 2 weeks ago, some parts of the UK will be affected and so some UK airports may experience delays. Check out the BBC weather report which says “Areas expected to be affected on Saturday in England includes the North East, North West, West Midlands, East Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, the East of England, London and the South East.” There is also some snow due in some resorts in the Alps, although the French school holidays have now finished so the traffic is not expected to be really bad.

If you are travelling on any of our services, please be prepared for the potential of a longer than usual transfer. Bring fluids and food with you and if the toilets don’t happen to be working, just ask the driver to pull over at the next safe place. Bring a book / DVD player so you don’t get bored and please be patient with our staff who will be doing their best. We do offer a shared service so we do have to consider the needs of other passengers.

 

FLYING OUT OF GRENOBLE / LYON AIRPORT BACK HOME

If you are taking our services from any resort to Grenoble, Geneva or Lyon Airports on Saturday 17th March, please ask your Lead Passenger to check their email inbox, spam and promotional folders and phones. We have contacted all people by email and text message if we have changed your bus time. If you have not received an email from us about a change, then your bus transfer remains as per your existing eTicket. If you want to be sure, you can re-send yourself your eTicket here. The new eTicket that will be sent out will show the correct bus times.

 

FLYING INTO GRENOBLE / LYON AIRPORT

DELAYED FLIGHTS: If your flight is delayed, please DO NOT CALL the number on your eTicket. Our team moniters flight arrival times and they try to create space on later services if your flight is delayed. Calling our team will only distract them from this important task and so would be counter-productive. As soon as you arrive at the airport, find your rep as per the instructions on your eTicket and they will update you on the situation.

CANCELLED FLIGHTS: If your flight is cancelled, please DO NOT CALL the number on your eTicket. They will be very busy dealing with customers arriving on the day.

If you have booked a new flight for later in the day to either Grenoble, Lyon or Geneva Airport, please find the Ben’s Bus Rep in Arrivals once you land and if they can get you on a bus, they will.

If you have booked a new flight on a different day, then please email the following information to the correct email address below:

  • Your Ben’s Bus Booking Reference Number (located in your eTicket email)
  • New Arrival Date
  • Airline
  • From which airport are you flying in from?
  • What time do you land at Grenoble / Lyon

tarentaise@bensbus.co.uk if your booking was from Grenoble Airport to any other resort

We will do our best to get you on a service on your travel date and we will reply to your email. Thank you for being patient after you have sent your email as we may not be able to reply immediately.

Please note that although we will do all of the above for you and we will do it for free, we are under no obligation to provide you with alternative transport if your flight is late, diverted or cancelled.
