How do Shared Transfers Work?

Shared Transfers to and from Les Contamines

Shared transfers are excellent options for those who travel on a tight budget, want to save money or simply want to enjoy the wonders of the world without leaving a high carbon footprint.

By choosing a seat in a shared vehicle you save money and leave a lower carbon trail. Using a shared transfer reduces the total traffic emissions of climate and air pollutants.

You will be taken from the airport arrivals and dropped off right at your chosen hotel or chalet, so you will not have to worry about taking a taxi or a bus when arriving in Les Contamines. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be dropped off at different locations in Les Contamines. When leaving Les Contamines, your driver will pick you up from your accommodation and drop you off at the airport departures.

On Arrival at Geneva Airport

The Journey from Geneva Airport to Les Contamines

When travelling to Les Contamines, passengers might be dropped off in Cordon, Combloux or Saint-Gervais. This tends to happen more when demand is low. Each drop-off does cause a delay, and if you are the last person in the vehicle to be delivered to your accommodation, or other chosen destination in the resort, there might have been a delay of 15-20 minutes, in a worst-case scenario.

The Journey from Les Contamines to Geneva Airport

The transfer company will always notify you of the pick-up time from your accommodation or other agreed 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, other passengers might be compromised by your no-show.

As the pick-ups in Les Contamines are usually close to one another, you will soon leave the resort and head to Geneva Airport. Along the way, the driver might stop to pick up other passengers, but once you leave Cordon, there will likely be no more stops before the Geneva Airport.
