How long in advance should you book ski transfers?

If you think that you can relax after booking your flights and accommodation for your upcoming ski trip, think again. How are you going to get from the airport to your hotel, chalet or apartment?

As we have discussed in another article, ski transfers are not very straight forward because you can’t build airports near ski resorts!

So to answer your question of how far in advance you should book ski transfers, our advice is to do it as soon as possible. This is especially true if you are travelling on a Saturday, and is even more important if you are travelling on a Saturday in school holidays. It is more important still if you want to book your ski transfers with a reliable and reputable local company!

I am writing this article in the middle of October and we have already had some disappointed FindTransfers users who left it too late to book their ski transfers with their preferred company. For the Christmas and New Year holidays it is not unheard of for companies to be fully booked in September. The February half term Saturdays are also very popular and some companies will be booked up well before Christmas.

Organising a ski holiday can be stressful enough so you don’t want to be panicking about your transfers at the last minute. As soon as you have booked your flights and accommodation then put a request through FindTransfers and you can take your pick of companies.

Having said all of that, if you are leaving it late to book your ski transfers we will definitely be able to find you something. There is even a chance that at the last minute we could find you a bargain with a company who would otherwise have an empty vehicle.

The best place to start looking for your ski transfers, whether you are booking a year in advance or at the last minute, is at FindTransfers.com

Have a great ski trip!

Cheap transfers for friends and family of season workers

If you are working a ski or summer season then it could well be the first time you have spent an extended period away from your friends and family.

But don’t worry, all of your mates and your close family will be queuing up to visit you during the season because you are living in an absolutely amazing place. If they are lucky, you might even have a sofa or a bit of floor space in your accommodation where they can crash making it a bargain break for them.

The only problem is that you probably do not have your own car in resort, and even if you did, you won’t have the time to go and pick up people from the airport. To make things worse, your mates are probably trying to save a few quid, so they booked the cheapest flights which land at the airport in the evening, making it impossible to get to resort by public transport! (Except in Switzerland…)

So how do you find cheap transfers for your friends and family?

First of all, have a look at our shared and last minute transfers page to see if there are any matching transfers already advertised by local companies. If you find any, you can contact the company to make a booking. It might be that transfers are advertised to nearby resorts – in this case it is still worth contacting the local company as they might make a little detour for you.

If there are no shared or last minute transfers already advertised, then don’t panic. Just enter your transfer details at findtransfers.com and local taxi and airport transfer companies will make you an offer if they have a vehicle going in the same general direction.

We hope that you have a great season and that all of your visitors have a great time!

How to find ski transfers at the best price

Since 2012, FindTransfers.com has helped thousands of people find the best value ski transfers from airport to resort.

 

Get several prices for your ski transfers

Using FindTransfers.com to find ski transfers is very simple. You tell us which airport you are flying to, which ski resort you are going to, when you are travelling and how many people are in your party. We then send your ski transfer request to local airport transfer and taxi companies and they send you their best price.

We only work with small, local taxis and airport transfer companies so that you get the best quality ski transfers at the best possible price.

Book ski transfers with a local company

When you receive quotes for your ski transfers through FindTransfers.com, you will be able to see lots of information about the local company and their vehicles. This is different from using an online agent where you have no idea which actual company will meet you at the airport. With FindTransfers you can read about the different companies and see pictured of their vehicles before you choose which one you would like to use.

Reviews of ski transfer companies

New for this winter, you can read reviews of the local taxi and transport companies written by other FindTransfers users. We think that this is a great new feature and will give you confidence in the company that you are booking with.

You can also see a copy of the local company’s licence so that you can be confident that the company you choose for your ski transfers will get you where you need to go in comfort and safety.

Vehicles equipped for your ski transfers

The companies that you will find on FindTransfers for your ski transfers all have experience driving in winter conditions and know the local area well. All of their vehicles will be well equipped with snow tyres and plenty of space for skis and boards. Many of the companies go a little further and only use 4 wheel drive vehicles for your ski transfers.

Cheap Ski Transfers

At FindTransfers we can also help you find cheap ski transfers. Everyday there are hundreds of empty taxis and airport transfer vehicles travelling to or from the airport empty because they are on their way to pick people up or have just dropped off. Our system makes it easy for companies to advertise these empty vehicles at bargain prices so that you get a great deal and they do not have to drive for hours with an empty vehicle.
 

There really is no better option than using FindTransfers for your ski transfers this winter. You get to compare lots of local companies based on price, review score, quality of their vehicles and their company ethos.
