We've got ourselves into a pickle. Booked skiing holiday in La Plagne with odd dates so had to get a flight into Geneva.

In the rush to ensure cheaper seats and book early we completely failed to consider transfers from Geneva to La Plagne which are looking to cost more than the flights now.

So far best option looks like hiring a car once we get there :(

Any one know any good local taxis that would do the job?

Thanks in advance.

I have done some searching and everything is really expensive (think Games Workshop prices).

Taxis in Switzerland cost about ten times as much as in England so I would not recommend that. These start at about £300.00 GBP each way.

I searched for buses but Cool Bus costs an astonishing 130 euros per person each way = 260 euro round trip. link
Aeroski Bus is 138 euros for the return trip.

For resorts within Switzerland you could get a train and then the Post Bus but this does not seem easy in France.

Hiring a car is probably the cheapest route.

Mick, Phil, thanks very much both of you.

Phil, if you are in Carthy's (Ivy House, opposite The Skylon)) in Drumcondra ask for Simon the manager and say his brother-in-law Steve stands you for a pint.

Mick, same for you but perhaps more impractical so many thanks at least.
