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 a unnecessary additional journey.

The nearest airport to Les Menuires is Chambery Airport, but Geneva Airport is the most popular and has more international flights scheduled. Grenoble is also close by, with Lyon Airport being slightly further away.

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.
Why stick to the windy roads and lengthy journey? The quickest and most stylish way to arrive in resort is by helicopter, with breath taking 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 37 minutes by helicopter to Les Menuires. Please note that this is a helicopter transfer only and does not include transport from Helipad to accommodation.
