Les Arcs UCPA
The following is our Children's Policy from Geneva Airport. If your child is big enough to sit in a seat themselves whilst safely strapped into a 2 point lap seat belt, then they must purchase a ticket at the full price & travel like any other passenger. If your child is so small that they need a baby seat, then regretfully we are unable to arrange to transport them. This is due to the fact that we often use large coaches which are not suitable for safely securing a baby seat.
- We provide an emergency telephone number on your e-Ticket in case you need to contact us.
- We have English speaking reps at the Airport and in resort to help you with your transfer.
- We typically use larger coaches which are more environmentally friendly.
- We use experienced drivers who know the mountainous terrain.
- We are a well established company who have been operating in the Alps for many years.
Please note that from time to time, our transfers from Geneva Airport may require a stop at Moutiers, Aime or Bourg St Maurice, where you may need to change over to another feeder coach. We will never ask you to change vehicles more than once. Our reps and / or drivers will help you with this changeover and we will try to keep this inconvenience to a minimum.
