About Transfers to La Plagne

There are several ways to get to La Plagne from the airports, or the train and bus stations in Aime. The most popular way from the airports is to arrange a transfer - either a private minibus, a privately operated coach or a shared minibus. From the bus or train station in Aime you can take a public bus up to the various resort villages.

There are many companies that offer airport transfers and you will need to book your seats in advance.

Airport transfers & shuttles

In the winter season, you are most likely to fly into one of four airports - Chambery, Grenoble, Lyon and Geneva. In summer, flights only operate to Geneva and Lyon. Most transfers from these airports to La Plagne are offered on a private basis. Shared transfer options are also available either by minibus or seats on a coach. 

You should always try to book your transfers in advance as you cannot guarantee picking up one at the airport and some companies strictly forbid their drivers from doing this. You can do this easily and quickly online from the transfer companies websites.

Here are the approximate transfer times and distances to La Plagne from these airports:

Private taxis & transfers

Private Taxis
It is possible to pick up a private taxi in one of the ranks found immediately outside each of the airports. Prices to resort should be negotiated before setting off. For more than 4 people the cost will obviously be higher for a larger vehicle but probably cheaper per person. Even though you agree a price beforehand, the driver is obliged to keep the meter running and may not charge more than the price shown (except for surcharges and motorway tolls etc). Take a look at our taxis page for options.

Private Transfers
There are a number of companies that offer private transfers for groups of more than four persons from most airports in the region. If you are a large family or group with five or more people then a private transfer company who can offer a people carrier or minibus will be the cheapest and quickest option. With more space than a normal car taxi and door to door service this is certainly worth investigating before you book anything else.

Inter-resort transfers

If you're looking to get across to neighbouring Les Arcs it's not particularly easy unless you use the ski lifts or self-drive. 

If you're heading further afield, it's often a good idea to head back to the nearest airport, which may take you a bit out of your way geographically, but you'll find more transfer options from there. Airport transfer companies and Tour Operators run regular transfers to and from the airport (especially at the weekend) and they sometimes have spare seats that you can purchase from them. Once at the airport, the idea is to co-ordinate with an onward transfer to the resort of your choice – either with the same tour operator or transfer company. As the majority of people travel on Saturday or Sunday, the weekend is your best chance of bagging an inter-resort transfer; mid-week or out of season travel is likely to be complicated and potentially expensive. You should enquire directly with the operators in resort about availability but they may not be able to confirm your place until the last minute as priority will go to their “package” clients.
