#TWENTYSEVENTIGNES is SOLD OUT

Transport

There are a number of ways you can get to the Alps, ranging from the included bus transfer to our air transfers.

Coach

With executive coach travel included in the base price, the vast majority of trip participants find this is the best value way to get out to the Alps. We only use modern, comfortable, executive coaches with TVs and toilets so the journey is much more comfortable than you might imagine. You can bring one medium-sized soft shell bag, the dimensions of which should be no greater than 50cm x 50cm x 100cm. If you have your own skis or snowboard you will be able to bring this onto the coach for free.

Flights

For those of you who would prefer to get to resort in comfort, style and the shortest possible time, as well as get in an extra night’s sleep after term ends and an extra night in Tignes, this is the option for you. Flights leave on Saturday 2nd December from London Gatwick and arrive in Geneva airport that afternoon. You’ll then be met by a coach that will transport you from the airport to the resort. The return flights will be from Geneva airport.

Fly one way: £70 (+£30 for equipment)

There is a reduction in the trip price of £30 (or £50 for the Racers’ Package) if you choose to take this option for both legs of your journey. Parking may also be difficult, we recommend you contact us in advance for advice.

If you have your own skis or snowboard you will be able to bring this onto the coach free of charge but you will need to book this in advance on the booking form. We also ask, to ensure that everyone’s luggage can fit on the coach, that you place your ski boots inside your large packing bag, not in a separate boot bag. Each passenger is also permitted one small bag to carry on board.
