Travelling to Meribel


Transport...often the one thing that people put at the bottom of their ‘to do’ list and end up leaving until the last minute! Getting to Meribel is easy and accessible via various  routes and modes of transport.  Here is some information that should help you get to Meribel, but if you need a little more, please don't hesitate to contact our team in the office who will be more than happy to point you in the right direction...literally.



Meribel Transfer Times




Powder White hold an Air Travel Organiser's Licence granted by The Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is 6860.  We can offer you 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 and helicopters on your behalf, you can choose the most suitable options available.  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 Meribel 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 the furthest away.




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, and it avoids the hassle of early check in times and the lengthy transfer to resort, as Moutiers is less than half an hour’s transfer to Meribel. Depending on which trains you pick you can also get 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.
Standard Class Non-flexible return tickets start at £90 for children and £149 for adultsFirst Class Non-flexible return tickets start at £200 for children and £299 for adults

From Moutiers Train Station, you can take a pre booked private or shared transfer, taxi or local bus from the bus station close by.





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 other 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 advisable not to leave until the last minute! So, book now to avoid disappointment!

Please call the UK Operations Team on +44 (0) 208 877 8882 and they can advise and book your transfers for you or you can add on a private transfer by logging into your booking using your booking reference and password.






Shared transfers are fantastic if you want to cut the cost of travelling to resort – that is, if you don’t mind travelling with people you don't know. Prices will suit single passengers, couples and smaller groups the best.  

Prices start from €65 per person one way and €130 per person return. It is advisable to pre book your seats in advance! However, if you are a bit of a last minute Larry, you can 'like' us on our Shared Transfer Facebook page and we will send you last minute deals on shared transfer seats, where available. If you would like more information on shared transfers before booking, please contact the UK Operations Team on +44 (0) 208 877 8882

For shared transfers from Chambery, Grenoble and Lyon airports, we advise on Bensbus and Snowbound Transfers.

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 the Ski Meribel coach, even if you are going to Courchevel.  The coach will drop you off in Moutiers, where you can then catch the local bus or a taxi up the hill to Courchevel.

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 too. You can travel in a single or twin engine helicopter, private or shared from most airports. From a private airbase near Geneva the journey time is 32 minutes by helicopter to Courchevel. 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 8882.
