Bag and Airport Transfers

LIGHTEN THE LOAD

Travel from the airport to your start hotel is up to you to arrange. There are various options available, which include private taxi, minibus transfer and public transport. The cost is not included in your holiday.

Getting to and from Geneva, Chamonix & Courmayeur

With regard to airport transfer this can be booked on-line, see their website at: https://www.mountaindropoffs.com and by using our promotional code MBTCHX you will receive a discount off their Flexi fare. The Flexi fare gives you peace of mind if your flight is delayed as they will transfer to the next available transfer unlike the supersaver which if missed will be recharged. This would cost approx 45€ per person each way.

If you are heading to Courmayeur for the TMB easterly trek then once in Chamonix you would need to take the bus from the train station, buses run approx. 4 times a day, please ask for further details.Alternatively you can opt for the private transfer, see below for more details.

For groups of 4 or more, or for those wishing to book a Private Airport Transfer where budget allows, www.resortrides.com is our preferred supplier. A professional & reliable company whom we have worked alongside for a number of years; will meet your flight only, and transfer you to the door of your hotel. The transfer is private for your group only. Please email info@resortrides.com and ask for ‘Mike’, or alternatively book direct through the website www.resortrides.com. Please quote reference MBT to ensure you are given priority.

Getting to and from Zermatt and other Walkers Haute Route locations

Similar to the start of your holiday, you will need to make your own arrangements for onward travel at the end of your holiday. Getting to and from Zermatt or any other location on the Haute Route to Geneva is fairly straight forward and the Swiss rail service runs like clockwork and is the best way to get from Zermatt to Geneva airport. Train times and tickets information can be found on the following website: https://www.postauto.ch/en

Please contact us for information on getting to and from Zermatt, Zinal, La Sage and Arolla.

If you are not sure about carrying a larger backpack with everything you need for the duration of the trek what about having your bags transferred for you each day. We offer a bag transfer service in order to make your trekking holiday even more enjoyable.

We offer a bag transfer service on the Tour du Mont Blanc and Walkers Haute Route for those who do not want to carry a larger multi-day backpack enabling you to trek with a day backpack containing just the essential gear for the day. Your bags will be collected each day from your accommodation and taken to your next destination ready for when you arrive.

Baggage transfer is included in the cost on all of our guided treks.

This service is also available for all our self-guided clients at an additional cost per group. Bag transfers are costly to provide due to the distance travelled each day by the driver to get to the more remote locations, therefore the minimum cost is based on a group of 4 people.

Bag transfer is available each night apart from when in Mountain huts or when accommodation is too remote or distant for vehicular access.

We ask that bags weigh no more than 15kgs and they are no bigger than a standard suitcase size.

For our Walkers Haute Route treks bag transfer is included in the guided option. For self-guided Walkers Haute Route treks due to the distance travelled it is costly to provide as we use local taxi companies who will provide transfers between locations. See below for an indication of cost for the full trek, please ask for a quote for other Walkers Haute Route itineraries.

We do not offer bag transfer as a standalone service and for groups not trekking with us.
