La Plagne Travel Distances




Powder White hold an Air Travel Organiser's Licence granted by The Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is 6860.  We can offer a range of different flight options and whether you prefer to book low cost airline flights yourself or have us book charter or scheduled seats, executive jets or helicopters on your behalf, you can choose the mode of transport most suited to you.  Also, if you are travelling from outside of the UK you have the freedom to book a direct flight to your destination without having to go via London, therefore saving you time, money and an unnecessary additional journey. 

The nearest airport to La Plagne is Chambery but Geneva Airport is the most popular. It offers the biggest selection of scheduled international flights and if you plan on getting a private or shared transfer, Geneva is your best option.



Getting the Eurostar is a great alternative to flying out to resort or driving.  You can get the Eurostar from King’s Cross St Pancras to the French Alps directly.  This avoids the hassle of early check in times and the lengthy transfer to resort, as Bourg St Maurice is 35 minutes transfer to La Plagne and Aime is only 30 minutes. Depending on which trains you pick you can also pack 8 days of skiing into your 7 night holiday.  There is an overnight train leaving on Friday evenings so you can ski on Saturday, or a Saturday morning train that arrives early evening in time for dinner. For your return journey you can depart on Saturday mornings and Saturday evenings.

Note: Aime station is in Aime town (not Aime La Plagne ski resort). Arrival trains stop at Aime. Departing Eurostar trains do not call at Aime.

From Bourg St Maurice train station or Aime, you can take a pre-booked private or shared transfer to resort.



Choosing to book a private transfer is great if you and your party want to be greeted at the airport with a vehicle to yourselves. You will receive a great service that operates door to door. Powder White runs its own private transfer service and we have a great relationship with a number of transfer companies too. Due to private transfers being one of the most popular modes of transportation to resort, it is always best to book in advance and  not leave until the last minute! So book now to avoid disappointment!

Please call the UK Operations Team on +44 (0) 208 877 8887 and we can advise and book your transfers for you.

You can book your car hire on their website – here www.carhire3000.com. If you don’t trust your sat nav, we have directions below to help you.

Long: 6.6772' E

NB: In an alpine environment sat navs are not always accurate and they will not be aware of road closures.
For driving in France, it is important that you check you have the following:
Beam deflectors
Warning triangle
Reflective vest
Green card.  This is international comprehensive car insurance.
GB Sticker
Spare set of car light bulbs
Car documentation (registration, insurance, MOT etc)
Valid Road Tax
Valid Driving Licence

*Do also remember your snow chains, you may not be allowed up to resort without them. Also recommended by motoring organisations (and in some cases a legal requirement) for continental travel in winter are the following items: small spares kit, fire extinguisher, spare keys, manufacturer’s handbook, & shovel. 
In France, it is now a legal requirement from November 2012 to carry a breathalyzer in your car at all times. You will be fined by police if you cannot produce one on request.


If you can cope with the overnight journey, an excellent way to travel to resort is via Snow Express who provide coach transfers to La Plagne, dropping you at Bourg St Maurice where a public bus will take you up to Plagne Centre (included in price). Coaches leave London Victoria Coach station on Friday evening and they also do a pick up at Folkstone. Prices for La Plagne start at £75.
For information, call Snow Express on +44 (0) 845 890 0390 or email info@snowexpress.co.uk for bookings.



Why stick to the windy roads and lengthy journey? The quickest and most stylish way to arrive in resort is by helicopter, with breathtaking views of the Alps included! You can travel in a single or twin engine helicopter, private or shared, from most airports. From Geneva the journey time is 30 minutes by helicopter to La Plagne. Please note that this is a helicopter transfer only and does not include transport from Helipad to accommodation. If you are interested in booking a helicopter, please call our UK Operations Team on +44 (0) 208 877 8887.
