Private transfers vs local taxi providers – what is better?

Much simpler is to take one of the private transfers from airports and Courchevel. Chambery is the closest, but also the quietest airport and it may be difficult to find both low-cost flights and shared transfers from here. Lyon is the furthest distance from Courchevel and therefore transport costs are often higher from here.

Private transfers are available from any of the airports, but if you are traveling in a smaller group our recommendation would be to go via Geneva or Grenoble airport and take a Snowbus shared transfer journey to Courchevel. Flights tend to be cheaper into Geneva and Grenoble, plus the volume of skiers & snowboarders traveling during the winter means many more transport options are available from here.
