The Journey from Geneva Airport to Sallanches

When travelling to Sallanches, passengers might be dropped off in other resorts before you. 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. However, since the demand for big resorts such as Sallanches is quite high, there is a good chance that all your fellow passengers might be travelling to Sallanches as well.

The Journey from Sallanches 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 Sallanches are usually close to one another, you will soon leave the resort and head to Geneva Airport. Along the way, the driver might stop in other resorts to pick other passengers up, but usually, all pick-ups take place in Sallanches.
