A Shared Transfer from Geneva Airport to Les Carroz

Before the outbound journey from Geneva Airport (GVA) to Les Carroz begins, you might have to wait for more passengers to arrive on different flights, but that might not be enough people to fill the vehicle.
It is quite common, particularly in the low season for the minibus to depart Geneva Airport with only 4 or 5 passengers.
Once you are on your way, there should be no stops until you arrive in Les Carroz. There is a small possibility that the driver might stop before Les Carroz to drop other people off, but since Les Carroz is the first resort in Le Grand Massif ski area when coming from Geneva Airport, chances are that all passengers in the minibus travel to Les Carroz.

This tends to happen more when demand is low. Each drop-off causes a small delay, and if you are the last person to be dropped off at your accommodation in Les Carroz, there might be a delay of 15-20 minutes.

However, there are equal chances that you are lucky, being among the first ones to be dropped-off, thus adding no delay or only a few minutes delay to your overall journey time.

 

The Journey from Les Carroz to Geneva Airport

The transfer company will always notify you of the pick-up time from your accommodation or other agreed pick-up location in the resort.

Be in that place at the appointed time. If you are not there, the driver will not wait, as to do so, might compromise the other passengers. No-one wants to risk missing their flight, because someone else is not at their agreed pick-up point on-time.

As soon as all passengers from Les Carroz are picked-up, the journey to Geneva Airport begins. 

 

Ethics of a Shared Transfer to or from Les Carroz

The shared transfer experience requires a bit of “give and take” and a considerate attitude from all passengers.
Do not be late. Do be helpful if required and be polite to your fellow passengers.
The companies that provide shared transfers are very experienced.
Listen to what their driver might have to say and enjoy the ride!

 

What happens if my flight is delayed?

TransferFix is in the process of contracting with all LTPs so that you might be able to benefit from transportation on the next available mini-bus.

By choosing a seat in a shared LTP, you save money and leave a lower carbon trail.

 

Private Transfers to and from Les Carroz

A Private transfer will give you much more flexibility. You get to choose your drop-off and pick-up points in Les Carroz.
You have no other passengers to consider, but do listen to your driver for any advice.

 

Be Prepared

Les Carroz is an alpine resort, and depending on matters outside for everyone's control, and in unusual circumstances, the situation might change, sometimes very quickly.
You might have to adapt. If that is required, listen to your driver and please be compliant.
