For Winter Season 2016/17 transfers will be provided by Skidigonzales (or a third party partner).
All of your inbound and outbound flight details must be with us on our booking form 20 days prior to departure.
You will be met at Geneva Airport upon your arrival by a representative from Skidigonzales (or third party partner). They will co-ordinate your egress from the airport and get you quickly on your way to Morzine.
In order to accommodate multiple arrivals you may be required to wait up to one hour in the coffee bar.
If your flight is delayed and you miss your transfer, you will be allocated a seat on the next available transfer.
If for any reason Skidigonzales are unable to provide your transfer you will be transferred by a third party. In this instance it will only be by an organization that we have approved.
All transfers are provided to and from Geneva Airport only. This includes hotels that are on the service roads alongside the airport. For example Crown Plaza, Express Holiday Inn. If your hotel falls outside this range you will be required to take the Hotel free shuttle bus to the airport to arrive at your pre-arranged arrival time. Please check directly with Mountain Mavericks as to whether you can be picked up from your hotel.

IMPORTANT: Incorrect information that requires additional transfers be organized at short-notice will be charged at a minimum of 150 euros for up to 4 people. Additional seats will be charged at 75 euros per person thereafter.
On clear days the normal transfer time from Geneva to Morzine is 1hr15mins. Due to extreme mountain conditions during the season this is not always possible. Therefore occasionally we have to allow 4+ hours to transport you safely back which includes adequate time to check-in. The decision will reside with Skidigonzales or the third party transfer service.
We will always allow adequate time to get you safely and on time to the airport. However, there can be unforeseen exceptional circumstances that mean you miss your flight or train. Please note that for any costs incurred you will need to claim against your holiday insurance. We will provide any paperwork required to support your claim.
