Free transfers to/from Geneva airport are subject to our policy or further charges may apply. Free Transfers are only applicable to groups reserving the whole chalet for an entire week. Smaller groups or individuals travelling at different times to the main group will incur a further cost of £25pp each way for their transfers. If arriving on any other day than Sunday, then transfers are not included and your own arrangements must be made. The main transfer company we use is www.abchateltransfers.com
Arrival/Departure flights must be within the hours of 0930hrs to 1400hrs. If your flight is not within these timings, you will be charged an additional £25pp. Thank you for your understanding.
If we do not receive a Booking sheet by 1 November each calendar year with your flight booking details and contact details in full, we will be unable to honour our promise of Free transfers and a £25pp supplement to your booking will be added to off set the cost of transfers. If booking after the 1 November, details of your transfers will be discussed if included or not.
As of April 2014, Chalet Owners are now required to conform to an EU regulation preventing them from collecting their clients at the airport unless they have a CPC qualification. We employ only services who are legally able to fulfil this duty. On some occasions we employ the services of other transfer companies.
Groups arriving after these times will not be provided with an evening meal as unlikely to arrive in resort at a respectable time. Groups not arriving at the same time will only be entitled to one journey each way. Additional cost to provide a service for several journey’s will apply in these circumstances. If there are more or less than 8 people staying in your chalet, there is a possibility you will be required to be flexible about your departure timings to coincide with others and share a transfer. Transfers are only Free for groups of 8 or more. On rare occasions, you may be asked to wait for other flights to arrive or depart earlier than you would like. Be aware that there are certain weeks in the season which are very busy. These include holiday periods but also certain March dates when the Geneva car show is on.
If you would like a definitive time (Private Transfer) for leaving or to be collected immediately at the airport with no waiting around, please inform us at time of booking so these arrangements can be made. An additional cost will be applied. Alternative transfer companies may be contracted to fulfil the task of transferring you to/from Chatel. If you have any questions regarding your transfers to/from Chatel, please enquire and we will assist you in clarifying if additional charges apply or not. Our decision is final. If your transfer is delayed due to bad weather or other circumstances, you are asked to remain patient and flexible as all efforts will be made to get you to your destination as soon as possible.
If your flight is delayed more than 2 hours, we have the right to abort the transfer with no refund and you will have to claim from your insurance company. We will then assist in making a new reservation for a transfer as soon as practicable which will be charged additionally. If your flight is delayed a surcharge will be made for each hour after the first, the driver is expected to wait at the airport. Whilst every care is taken, we will not accept responsibility for any damage caused to your property during the journey or for example you are late for your flight due to mechanical failure, accidents or traffic. Check out time from our chalets is 0930hrs as it is often necessary to prepare the chalet for incoming groups the same day. No facility is made for showering or changing after this time.
