SEARCHING FOR A VTC (CARRIER)
The booking widget on the right of this page already has Praz-sur-Arly as the selected destination. The closest major airport is Geneva (GVA). So GVA is pre-selected. You can change the airport. If you are landing in Lyon Exupery (LYS), Milan Malpensa (MXP or any other airport in the list, select that airport.
Not all of the airports have a service to Praz-sur-Arly. Try a second search with Megeve as the destination if the first search returns no, or limited results for Praz-sur-Arly.
Also, you can select a Rail station, instead of an Airport.
Next is the Journey Type with a choice of One Way or Return.
If your One Way journey is from Praz-sur-Arly to Geneva Airport, the easiest way to change the routing is to click the up & down arrow icon.
Return is both the outbound and the inbound journey. Effectively, two journeys.
If you are taking a return journey, you do not need to use the same carrier for each journey. The TransferFix platform will allow you to travel with one VTC on the outbound journey and another VTC or the return (inbound) journey.
Next is the Transfer Type with a choice of Shared & Scheduled or Private. In the results all service types do display. But your choice is the default. To Praz-sur-Arly, their might not be a Scheduled Bus service. Try Megeve and maybe someone from your accommodation can meet you in Megeve.
FLIGHT ARRIVES ON
This is the date and time that your flight is scheduled to arrive at the airport. If there are no, or only limited, shared transfers available search results for the exact time of arrival, in a modified search, try a later time. This means you will have a longer wait at the airport. For a private transfer, your VTC will be waiting for you at the airport.
FLIGHT DEPARTS ON
This will display only if you have selected a return journey. Again, apply the exact time that your flight departs. The VTCs have a lot of experience with airport transfers, so you can rely on them to give you the appropriate pick-up time from your accommodation to deliver you to the airport in good time to catch your flight.
Apply the exact number of passengers. This should include any child that shall travel in a 'booster' seat. The booster seat will be provided by the VTC.

Shared Transfers to and from Praz-sur-Arly
Shared transfers are an excellent economical option. By choosing a seat in a shared vehicle you save money and leave a lower carbon trail. You will be taken to, or from your hotel, chalet or apartment, no matter where you are staying in the destination location. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be collected from or dropped off at different locations.
At the airport, you might have to wait for other passengers arriving on different flights. Typically, this is not more than 30 minutes, though in the low season, it might be longer. There is always the possibility that you are fortunate, with all passengers coming off the same flight or from flights landing within minutes of each other.
On arrival at the destination location, the VTC will decide the order in which passengers are dropped-off at their accommodation. This might increase your average travel time.
With journeys to the airport, the VTC will decide the order of collection of the passengers. In advance, the VTC will advise you of the pick-up time. Be ready. If you are not ready, the VTC will not wait. They do not want to compromise other passengers waiting to be picked-up.
The shared transfer experience requires a bit of “give and take” and a considerate attitude with other passengers.
TransferFix VTC partners offer shared transfers in the season. Shared transfers are not provided all year.
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. Check your mobile phone for info that will usually arrive by SMS.

Praz-sur-Arly is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.
Praz-sur-Arly has a rich history of over six centuries, with the first inhabitants establishing La Thona (La Tonnaz today) in 1375, which was followed by Réon (Rayon at the time) and Le Pratz, which is the centre of the village today.
The village saw the constructions of two chapels and one church - the Mary Magdalene Church - in the 17th century.
A school followed, together with the desire to gain independence from Megève, which was a long process finalized in 1907, when the Town Council, by Government decision, stated that Pratz de Megève should become Praz-sur-Arly.
Praz-sur-Arly is an ideal holiday destination, because of its numerous summer & winter activities, its serenity, its breathtaking scenery and the proximity to bigger resorts, such as Chamonix or Megève.
