Why use them?
They are big enough to better the best of the rest but small enough to genuinely care about each and every client. They provide friendly, professional, high quality, competitively priced Private Airport Transfers in clean, comfortable, well maintained, well equipped vehicles driven by courteous and experienced drivers. With over 20 years experience in the holiday industry and 31 years experience in the transport industry, they know how to deliver the service you deserve.
New fleet in 2017 - Fifteen VW T6 Caravelle 8 passenger long wheelbase minibuses and one Mercedes V-Class Executive 6 passenger minibus. All 16 vehicles are 4 wheel drive with automatic tiptronic gearboxes to provide a super smooth sure-footed ride, privacy glass, multi-zone passenger controlled air-conditioning and direct Bluetooth client media interface so they can confidently claim to have the best fleet in the Alps in terms of the specification being offered at a sensible price. In addition to the above they have a 4x4 VW T5 Caravelle 8 passenger LWB minibus and a Land Rover Discovery HSE 6 passenger vehicle permanently on stand-by at base so they have a back-up should it ever be required. They have also forged strong relationships with tried and trusted local suppliers in order to provide transfers in well-equipped cars and also larger vehicles for group bookings at rates that you could not achieve yourself by going direct. All vehicles have space for luggage and skis/boards for all the passengers and they also have trailers for Bike Boxes and other bulky sports equipment if required which they transport free of charge.
Their drivers are carefully selected for their friendly, courteous and professional approach. Unlike many seasonal operators, most of their drivers return year in year out so they know the ropes and enjoy working for Mountain Express which in turn means they know how to provide the high quality of service you deserve. As part of their initial selection process, they must pass a driving assessment carried out by a Police Grade 1 driving instructor and all drivers, both new and returning attend an advanced Alpine Driving course at the start of each season. Drivers have also passed the obligatory medical examination required by law in France to drive fare paying passengers in this strictly legislated industry. You can rest assured therefore that their drivers will drive with consideration for you and other road users in a smooth, professional and confidence inspiring manner.
Prices are based on availability and booking date, so the earlier you book the better the price!
