  • What is a shared transfer? If I book a shared transfer, how long is my wait at Geneva airport?

    Our shared transfers are the most cost effective convenient way to get to and from Chamonix. The Cham-Van Airport Transfer Team carefully plan all shared transfers between Geneva & Chamonix, with the following goals in mind:

    • To minimise client waiting time.
    • For arrivals at Geneva Airport, clients whose flights are scheduled to arrive at a similar time will be grouped to travel together. This can be extended to 1 hour in low/interseason.
    • To ensure that no client with a confirmed reservation is left behind at the airport due to circumstances outside of their control (such as delays with flights, customs or baggage).
  • What is a private transfer?

    The fastest most convenient transfer option to your chosen resort or airport. No waiting for additional clients.
