By carefully choosing our airline partners, airports and slot times we are able to ensure you a comfortable and reliable Sunday service from Gatwick and Manchester to the Alps. We can’t pretend that the fun of the holiday begins at the airport (particularly if you are travelling with young children) but we can try and get you to your chalet with the minimum of fuss.

Luggage allowance does vary from flight to flight, and the rules are often confusing with regards to skis, snowboards and boots. As a guide to what is included within our holiday booking when travelling on our Charter flights please see the details below. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to call us on 020 8875 1957.

Ski Boots – if you are only bringing ski boots and no skis
If we do buy in seats on a scheduled service for you, even if the flight has the same flight numbers as our chartered flights, your seats will have been booked as per the Flight Operator's scheduled services terms and conditions and thus your baggage allowances and charges may differ to those set out above. We therefore advise that you look at the Flight Operator's website for information on their baggage policy. If you have any questions or queries on how their policy differs to ours please do call us on 0208 875 1957.
We are working in partnership with I Love Meet and Greet to offer you a discount on your airport parking at Gatwick, Manchester and Heathrow. On the day you travel, simply drive to the terminal where one of the I Love Meet and Greet drivers will take your car back to their secure car park. On your return, you telephone them when you have passed customs and they will bring your car right back outside the terminal for you.
Pre-booking with I Love Meet and Greet means you can enjoy the additional benefits of:
No queuing in the car park
No scrambling onto buses with ski gear
Driving direct to the terminal forecourt
10% discount on bookings as a VIP SKI referral
If you would prefer the comfort or intimacy of a private taxi straight from the airport terminal to your chalet, we can arrange this for you. Pre-booking is essential.

Interested in making your own way out to resort but not sure how to go about it?
We’ve done the preliminary leg-work for you to make it that much easier. We hope you find the information below helpful but please note that is only a guide and may be subject to change.
Car hire at Geneva airport is split into two sectors, Swiss and French. Car hire companies operate in both sectors of the airport. The Swiss sector is the international sector but it is possible to cross over to the French sector if you have hired a car there. Please make sure you check when you hire your car whereabouts in the airport you are going to collect it.

If you would rather drive out to resort you can either book your ferry crossing direct with the operator or through an agent. Click here for self drive advice and directions to our chalets.
Alternatively, if you would rather have an agent search through more options for you, here are a few to try;
Our week operates Sunday to Sunday. We fly on a Sunday morning to avoid the crowds at the airport and the cars on the road. We operate smaller aircraft that are quicker to load and unload. All this helps.
Where possible we will endeavour to meet your needs, therefore we we have collated a list of regional and scheduled flying to help you source your desired flights, please click here.
We will send you your travel documents and essential pre-departure information via email approximately one week prior to departure. Please check these carefully and read all pre-departure information as it contains essential information regarding your holiday. It is also essential that you pass on all information to each member of your ski party as some details may have changed since the booking was made, and the website may have been updated.
Our flights sell out fast on busy dates, and we may sometimes purchase seats and transfers with other operators to satisfy demand. There is usually a supplement payable for these flights and we will always advise you prior to booking if this is the case. In addition to our main flights from Gatwick and Manchester, we can sometimes offer other regional departures for a supplementary charge. This is always subject to availability and naturally we have no control over the timings or levels of service provided by any alternative carriers.
We charter our own aircraft and so from time to time we have seats which can be sold as 'flight only'. Travelling on a Sunday also means that you benefit from quieter airports. All round it's a much more pleasant experience than most independent traveller options. If you are interested in buying a seat on one of our flights please email firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively call us on 0208 875 1957.
