Journey Times & Distances from Airports to Courchevel
Shared Transfers to and from Courchevel
Shared transfers are an excellent low-cost option. You will be taken right to, or from your hotel or chalet, no matter where you are staying in Courchevel. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be collected from or dropped off at different locations in Courchevel.
You might have to wait for more passengers at the airport or you might have to wait for other passengers to be dropped off in Courchevel before you, consequently your journey time might slightly increase. However, you will always be notified in due time of your exact pick-up time.
Contrarily, there is always the likelihood that you are lucky, with all passengers coming off the same flight or from flights landing within minutes of each other. Or, drop-offs in Courchevel might be close to one another or you might be the first to be dropped-off in Courchevel.
Either way, the shared transfer experience requires a bit of “give and take” and a thoughtful attitude from all passengers.
TransferFix offers shared transfers to and from Courchevel in the winter season.
Online, there are resources that allow the VTC to check that flights are departing on time. It is likely that your VTC will have as much information as you about any delays. However, on the booking confirmation form, you will be provided with their mobile number, so you can call for reassurance. If the VTC is not able to transport you in a later vehicle departure, by the time your flight lands, it is likely that the VTC will have arranged for your transportation with another VTC, for the same price that you have paid already.

Courchevel is a ski resort located in the French Alps and part of the famous Les Trois Vallées.
The resort consists of four villages, which used to be named for their altitudes in metres: Courchevel (1850 m or 6069 ft), Courchevel Moriond (1650 m or 5413 ft), Courchevel Village (1550 m or 5085 ft) and Courchevel Le Praz (1330 m or 4363 ft).
Courchevel is also linked to La Tania, which was renamed La Tania Courchevel in January 2017. La Tania was built to provide accommodation to the competitors of the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville.

Courchevel 1850 was constructed in the immediate post-war years and it represented an avant-garde design, as it was the first French resort to be built from scratch, rather than based around an existing village.
All villages are strongly linked by lifts, pistes, but also a road, which takes you through all the villages. There are also efficient and frequent buses that link the villages.
There is also an airport in Courchevel. Due to its very short distance (537 m or 1,762 ft) and steeply sloped runway (a gradient of 18.5%), the Courchevel Airport has seen many accidents and it was ranked as the 7th most dangerous airport in the world. Consequently, only specially certified pilots can perform at this airport.
