mountain dropoffs airport transfersFor a number of years now we’ve been working with the team at Mountain Drop-offs, who organise all of our transfers for Haute Routes and other trips and ski tours in the Chamonix region.

For regular airport transfers between Geneva and Chamonix, Mountain Dropoffs offer the best all round service, with regular reliable transfers through the season.

They offer a shared minibus taxi service which meets you in the airport and drops you off at the door of your hotel. Book your transfer here and use promo code ALPGUID to receive a discount on your journey.


In order to keep our prices as low as possible, we prefer to receive balance payments by direct bank transfer rather than card payments, which incur significant back end fees.

If you live outside the Uk, then the best way to do this is via an international payment service such as Transferwise.  This is much cheaper than making an international bank transfer through your bank, as fees are lower and you get a far better exchange rate.

We make dozens of international money transfers each year and always use Transferwise – it’s secure, convenient and cheap!  If you want to make a balance payment to us using Transferwise, then you can sign up to Transferwise here.
