1000 reviews of airport transfer companies

We are absolutely delighted to announce that on 28 April 2015 we published the 1000th independent review of an airport transfer company on FindTransfers.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the users of FindTransfers who have taken the time to leave a review, and congratulate all of the 128 companies (and counting) who have received such excellent feedback.

The aim of FindTransfers is to help people find and book small local taxi and airport transfer companies when they go on holiday. Independent reviews written by other FindTransfers users are absolutely vital in giving people the confidence to book with these companies that are often much cheaper than booking through a large agent, and also offer a better service.

As the number of reviews on FindTransfers grows, we are constantly working hard to improve the system and make it even quicker and easier to find and book airport transfers. We are also expanding to more airports so that we can help more people get a great deal with amazing local companies.

Now, let’s see how long it takes us to get to 2000…

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!

Driving from Geneva Airport to the Three Valleys, Espace Killy and Paradiski

What is the best way of driving from Geneva Airport to the big resorts of the Tarentaise Valley? The resorts we are talking about here are Méribel, Courchevel, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Les Arcs, La Plagne, Tignes, Val d’Isere and all of the smaller villages in between.

There are two main options when driving from Geneva airport to the 3 Valleys, Paradiski or Espace Killy, with some sub-options.

Option 1: Motorway via Chambéry

If you type Geneva airport to any of the above resorts in to a mapping application, the first choice is often to take the long way round, and travel via Chambéry. Whilst on a good day this could take a few minutes less than option 2, the route via Chambéry is almost 50 km further (approx 35 miles). On top of this, it takes you much, much further on France’s expensive motorways so not only will you spend loads more on fuel, but you will also spend more money on tolls.

The upside with option 1 is that there is slightly less chance of getting lost. You follow signs out of Geneva airport for France, then Annecy, then Chambéry then Albertville. When you are on the dual carriageway at Albertville this is where you meet up with the route of option 2.

Option 2: Via Lake Annecy

If you are quite confident driving in a foreign country, and you have a bit of a sense of direction, then take this option.

After taking the new motorway from Geneva to Annecy, leave the motorway at Annecy-Sud (Annecy South) and follow the green signs for Albertville. This will take you through Annecy and then along the shores of Lake Annecy, which is lovely.

If you have a sat nav or a map, then try to go on the other side of the Lake, via Talloires. Not only is the traffic quieter on this side but the views are even better.

Option 3: Transfers from Geneva to 3 Valleys, Paradiski and Espace Killy

You might not have been expecting a third option, but it is by far the best. Use the FindTransfers website to find the best price on transfers from Geneva Airport.

With option 3, you do not have the stress of driving, the expense of parking an empty car and you get to see the amazing views.

Good luck and have a great time!
