Private transfers are easily organised from almost all locations, whereas shared transfers are available from the busier airport sites only.


Compare transfers between Chambery airport & Tignes ski resort

The closest airport to Tignes is the small, winter-only operation in Chambery. At a distance of 142km and with travel time of just over 2 hours, Chambery airport is a convenient option for cheaper private ski transfers – as long as you can find a reasonably-priced flight there. Shared transfers between Chambery airport & Tignes don’t tend to exist unfortunately because although it is a short journey time, there are too few independent passengers to make it economically viable to run.


Compare transfers between Geneva airport & Tignes ski resort

Despite technically being in Switzerland, Geneva airport is the most popular airport for journeys to & from Tignes. The high number of low-cost European flights to Geneva has made it one of the busiest airports for skiers, and as such the number of transfer companies working from here make it easier to find travel options. At 170km and just over 3 hours, the transfer journey is a relatively long one, but the prospect of cheap flights and private or shared transfers to Tignes make Geneva airport an attractive option.

Grenoble isn’t the closest airport to Tignes (Chambery airport is), but it has become a well-used travel route due to the number of low-cost airlines flying from there. Grenoble airport lies 215km away from Tignes ski resort, and just under 3 hours drive on a good day. Due to its good motorway connections the journey is a relatively fast one, but be just aware that French toll road charges can add to the cost of a transfer.

Snowcompare showed me deals and companies that I didn’t see in my initial Google searches. I was also very happy with the price/deal on offer. The website was easy to use and I received my booking confirmation promptly. I will use Snowcompare in future.

After agreeing for one price I was sent an email with a new lower price that I then selected. Then, I was charged the original quote with a second operator. The team was quick to resolve the issue. I would use the service again.
