Chamonix doesn’t have any “UBER” and there aren’t too many Taxi’s either! especially at night when you need one.
Its for this reason that we have been operating an In-Valley “Taxi” service in the Chamonix valley for the last 2 years.
We have vehicles on the road 24 hours a day 7 days a week all year round.
We are already taking bookings for New Year and we strongly recommend that if you are heading out in Chamonix over New Year you at least take our number with you, its better to book in advance but if you are unsure of when you want to return home you can always call us.
The weather in Chamonix has just made a massive “U” turn and gone from bright warm sunny weather to bitterly cold and snowy. Â During Saturday (21st November) is snowed all day and even into the night, since then it has remained very cold (-10 Sunday 22nd November).
Whilst on a recent private transfer trip from Geneva city centre to Chamonix with a group from the southern hemisphere (who hadn’t seen snow before) we took this picture. Needless to say they were pleased.
After this, our group headed off to Annecy before returning to Geneva.
With all this snow and more forecast this week it looks like its here to stay, even the “Compagnie Du Mont Blanc” have announced they will be opening earlier than they usually do.
At Only 1hr 20 driving time from Geneva airport to Courmayeur its surprising that this world class resort isn’t busier than it is, but this is one of the reasons we love it so much. Â Lots of people dont consider the option of driving an extra 20 minutes past Chamonix, but they should!
Courmayeur has it all, great skiing both on and off piste, wonderful restaurants on and off the mountain, a wide range of hotels and other accommodation, access to the “Valley Blanche” via Helbronna and the most state of the art gondola in the world called “Skyway”.
Its no wonder we travel through the Mont-Blanc Tunnel ourselves when ever we get the chance, and for this year we now have the winter opening times.
More and More people are arriving into Chamonix by Helicopter from all over the Alps. Â Flights into Chamonix from Geneva airport are quite cost effective, especially during busy periods when the roads can be busy and its much quicker to simply fly over the traffic jams.
Flying into Chamonix from another resort is also common practice. Â Many people dont wish to spend a whole week in Chamonix and prefer to stay elsewhere but still want to visit the main attractions such as the Aiguille Du Midi.
At Deluxe we work closely with a number of Helicopter transfer companies providing all their ground transport solutions from landing to take off.
Deluxe Transfers Luxury V-Class
Here we can be seen picking up customers upon arrival in Chamonix after flying in from Courchevel 1850, with our V-Class “Aventgarde”.
For further information do not hesitate to contact us.
At Deluxe Transfers we don’t just provide airport transfers but a full chauffeur service with luxury Vehicles. Â The latest version of the Mercedes “Viano” is the new “V-Class” which is like a Mercedes “S-Class” with space for 7 passengers.
We are able to offer our new Mercedes V-Class as a wedding car for any type of distance both short and long, with large amounts of room in the rear and fully electronic openings there is no better way of arriving in style.
If your wedding has an “Eco” touch then why not consider our 100% Electric Nissan Leaf as your wedding car. Â With “Zero emissions” there is no better way to arrive at your Alpine wedding than in our Nissan Leaf.
We are pleased to announce that we have one of the only Extra Long Mercedes V-class luxury people carriers in France. Â With waiting lists of up to 8 months for this particular model we are pleased we ordered ours well in advance.
We are available for all types of work from Weddings to airport transfers both long distance and cross town, contact us for more information.
Chamonix skiing might be going to an end but “Deluxe” keep on going. Â We operate all year round 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Â We accept last minute calls and booking and answer the phone well after most companies have left the office!
If you are looking for a private airport transfer from Geneva to Chamonix or anywhere else, look no further.
As always at “Deluxe” we are constantly aiming to improve our service and this includes keeping our vehicles up-to-date with new models. Â Although the Mercedes Viano has been and still is one of the most popular luxury MPV’s on the market, it has recently been replaced by the “V-class”.
I am not going to go on a length about the various features of our new V-Class other than to say our new model is the top of the range extra long model, withh ALL options.
Below is a very well made video about the latest V-Class which i think shows the vehicle off quite well. Â We will post a short clip of our own model when it arrives from the factory in three weeks.
A great trip away from Chamonix for the day is to visit Vevey on the shore of Lake Geneva.
Distance from Chamonix is 100 KM’s and takes around 1.5 hrs drive time. Â The direct route involves driving over the Col De Montets and Col De La Forclaz and passing through Martigny before heading round to Lake Geneva and Vevey.
Charlie Chaplin chose Vevey as home and Shania Twain calls this place home at the moment!
