Getting from the airport to ski resorts is not as easy as one might imagine. Public transport on the majority of routes is infrequent, expensive and most of all, inconvenient if travelling with luggage + skis + boots. There are hundreds of local taxi companies out there operating vehicles that are equipped for winter driving and have enough space for any size of group and luggage, but finding them is not easy, nor is comparing quotes.
FindTransfers.com was built to help skiers connect with these local companies. Journey details are filled out once, and the transfer request is sent to a number of companies who operate transfers on that route. These companies will then reply directly by email with their best no obligation quote, and you will be free to choose the company that best matches your needs. FindTransfers.com does not charge any commission or booking fees on transfers so that skiers get the best price direct from the local transfer company.
For those travelling alone or in a small group, shared transfers, or last minute transfers might be more economical. FindTransfers.com has developed a system that allows local companies to advertise fantastic last minute fares, and also great deals on Shared Transfers. This system not only means that skiers get the best price on transfers, it also allows local transfer companies to fill empty vehicles, which is much better for the local environment.
Dia Barrett, Managing Director of FindTransfers said: “We launched findtransfers.com last year as a new service that helps skiers find the best deals for getting from the Airport to the Alps. In less than a year we’ve had over 4000 transfer requests and many happy users.
The process couldn’t be simpler: travellers fill out their desired journey details online which is then sent to a number of local companies who operate transfers on that route. These companies will then get in touch via email with their best no-obligation quote.”
“We quickly realised that a private transfer is not a viable option for solo travellers and came up with our Shared Transfers feature. The benefits of sharing transfers go beyond the economic and environmental. The first few hours in a foreign country can be quite daunting. Sharing your journey from the airport is a great way to meet new people and the journey can go so much quicker when you have someone to chat to.”
