Your Travel Options

How will you get to our skiing locations in France?

Reach us by railway, airplane, car or Snow Express.

There are many ways to reach us for the ski season, the choice is up to you! Of course, your travel route is up to personal preference, budgets and availability. To help you out with the planning, we thought we’d share the different routes to our ski chalets and apartments in France.

Your Ski Travel Options:

  • Ski Holiday by Coach: Return coach travel (Snow Express) is still the cheapest form of transport to the Alps (from £139 pp). It also has the bonus of giving you an extra day’s skiing! Departure from Heathrow and Dover, with regional options available for ski groups. Relyon also offer competitive rates for week long parking at Dover from as little as £3 per day if you quote Hucksters. Coach travel only option available subject to availability. Read our coach travel page for more details on our ski coach holidays or contact us via email, online form or phone for more information.
  • Ski Holiday by Plane: Flights are one of the most direct routes to the Alps and there are many budget airlines offering cheap flights. You will need to book your own flights which ideally arrive between 9:00 and 12:00 so that you can utilise our airport transfer options, available from £100 per person. Please contact us before booking your flights so that we can advise you on the best options.
  • Ski Holiday by Train: Another great way of getting to the Alps and having an extra day’s skiing is with train. Services leave London St Pancras early Friday evening and travels overnight to arrive in Bourg St Maurice on early Saturday morning. Transfers can be arranged by contacting us.
  • Ski Holiday by Car: A scenic route to our chalets is by car. This option also gives you autonomy with your travel plans and allows you to have the car during your holiday for any planned trips. Soak in all the views of France, aiming to arrive at our chalet any time on Saturday. Contact us for more information.
