The transfers to and from Chamonix take approximately
1 hour, however delays may occur in the event of heavy snow or traffic.
Our transfers on the outbound journey depart Geneva at approximately 3pm, so we ask for flights to land as close as possible to this time to avoid you having to wait for too long at the airport, however of course if you wish to get an early flight, which is often the cheapest option, there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops to spend some time before the transfer.
1x 8 seater minibus go to Chalet Genepi each transfer day. Bura guests receive shared private transfers, so please be aware that another party may have a delayed flight.
On the return journey, we leave the chalet at 9am to ensure there is ample time to reach the airport. We recommend that no departure flights are booked to depart Geneva prior to midday at the earliest.
Guests must have travel insurance to cover missed flights due to weather etc.. Neither we, nor the transfer company can be held responsible.
No need to book the whole chalet, just book the room or rooms of your choice.
