Put your flight details into our booking system and we will show you a list of available bus times. We may ask you to change buses at Moutiers. Our reps or drivers will help you with this.

Please note that Les Menuires is a large, sprawling resort in the mountains. It could be a long walk from our only bus stop to your accommodation and you should research this and understand this before booking with us. The shuttle buses do not operate 24hrs a day and local taxis may not agree to do a short in-resort journey.
Our buses are timed to give our customers at least 40 minutes (often more) to pass through Passport Control, Customs and Baggage Reclaim.
Unfortunately, unlike our other routes, we cannot hold our transfers back to wait for people who might be delayed. This is because the driver hours are strictly controlled by the EU and they need to get back to their depot before their hours run out. Our transfer departure times are also closely monitored by the local authorities to ensure a timely service and penalties are levied for late running services.
If you are running late, you can call our manager at the airport (their number will be on your e-Ticket) and they will do their best to hold the bus back a few minutes. Otherwise, we will get you on our next service at no extra cost, provided there is space. We have many buses going back and forth each day and our staff are trained to do the very best by our customers to ensure your holiday starts off on the right note.
- We provide an emergency telephone number on your e-Ticket in case you need to contact us.
- At week-ends, we have English speaking reps at the Airport and in resort to help you with your transfer.
- We typically use larger vehicles 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.
