If you are not flying with us
If you tell us when booking that you or members of your party are making your own way
Val d’Isère, we give a £50 Own Transport discount (not applicable if staying in an extra bed). There is also a £50 Own Transport discount for infants paying the £100 baby administration charge. This may not seem much,
chartered our own aircraft and coaches to whisk you there faster than
anything except a private jet and helicopter, we don’t want to
encourage you to spurn them.
Please note that this transport discount applies with a minimum holiday price of £400 on all dates other than 7 December and 19 April when there is a minimum holiday price of £375. Children and room discounts are deducted from the price regardless of this minimum although there are no child discounts on extra beds.
If you book YSE flights and
you subsequently decide to cancel these flights, we are unable to apply the Own Transport discount mentioned above unless you inform us of this within two weeks of the date of your Confirmation & Invoice.
Should you book a YSE holiday and we are not be able to provide a flight in one or both directions due to our flight being full, we will offer seats on our transfer coach from and to Grenoble airport. These seats are offered on the understanding that our coaches tie in with the YSE Grenoble flights outlined on our Flight and Transfer Information page. Our flight is scheduled to land at 12.40 at Grenoble and leaves again at 13.50. If these flight details change for any reason - earlier or later or a different airport - our coaches will be re-scheduled and transfers will only be available on those re-scheduled coaches. Under such circumstances we will not be able to provide transfers at the original times and/or to or from Grenoble.
Our coaches will not be able to wait if you are
delayed. The YSE transfer arrives in the resort at around 4.30pm from Grenoble Airport.
If you are making your own way to Val d'Isère, please tell us your approximate time of arrival at the chalet as this is helpful for the chalet staff. For your information, lift passes will be arranged by the chalet staff on your arrival. (NB some discounted ski passes must be pre-paid in the UK prior to your departure - see the Ski pass and discounts page for full details.)
Please note that the chalets are not available until 4pm on the day of arrival. Luggage can be dropped off before this time but the accommodation will not be ready. On your day of departure, the chalet must be vacated by 10am.
