Getting to Val d'Isère

Your holiday includes a return  flight from London Gatwick and a transfer to/from resort to meet this flight.  

Flights are a scheduled service with British Airways   at the following times (please note all times are provisional and flights may be different at start and end of season)

Upon your arrival at Lyon you will be met by one of our Ski-Val staff and accompanied on your coach journey to resort. We generally only have the one flight so you are not hanging around waiting for other arrivals. The journey  is approx 200km mostly motorway and transfer time is around 3/3.5 hours dependent on road/traffic and weather conditions.

Baggage information
Luggage is limited to 1 bag x  23kg in the hold and hand luggage is 1 hand bag/lap top bag (40 x 30 x15cm) plus 1 additional cabin bag (56 x 45 x 25cm).

Ski/Board carriage - You can take your skis/snowboard equipment as your checked hold allowance provided it is packed correctly  and within your allowance. 

  • Use a bag made for skis or snowboards to carry your equipment. This bag can be no longer than 190cm in length due to airport and aircraft baggage systems restrictions.
  • Your skis/snowboard and boots can be packed in the same checked baggage with your clothes as long as it doesn't exceed the maximum dimensions of 190 x 75 x 65cm (75 x 29.5 x 25.5in) and weighs no more than your weight allowance. If the weight is exceeded, you’ll be charged extra at the airport.
  • If you pack your boots separately from your skis or snowboard, your boot-bag can be carried as cabin baggage if it fits into our hand-baggage gauge. If it doesn't fit, it must be checked in, so make sure you know your baggage allowance

Should you need to take additional bags (whether for luggage or skis/boards) these are charged at £36 each way AND CAN ONLY BE BOOKED DIRECT WITH BA.


INDEPENDENT TRAVEL
If you choose to make your own travel arrangements to and from resort and do not wish to make use of our flights &/or transfers you may still be required to pay the full package price. We charter our own aircraft and the flight seats are pre paid regardless of whether they are full or not. Please ask at the time of booking if any reduction is available. Please note that you should aim to arrive at your chalet after 3pm on arrival day and leave by 10am on departure day.

PRIVATE TRANSFERS
If you have made your own travel arrangements and need a transfer to resort or would like a private transfer to your chalet, please ask us for more details.
