The brand new Volkswagen for 2016/17.
Nine years ago, we introduced the 4x4 Volkswagen T5 Caravelle into our fleet. Since then we've never looked back and we hope to have 13 identical T6 VW minibuses in our fleet to bring you to the 3 Vallées this winter. Their unrivalled comfort and reliability coupled with the highest standards of safety enable us to offer a service second to none. Their new 2.0L engine has a great deal of power but offers increased economy, allowing our constant drive to offer a more environmentally friendly product go from strength to strength. All will be delivered to us in December 2016 and are capable of carrying up to eight passengers with the utmost of comfort.
We realise that there are cheaper minibuses available but we're reluctant to compromise on either your safety or comfort in order to compete solely on price with other transfer companies operating in the area. For the second year running however, we will be operating three Renault Trafic minibuses in order to keep the cost of our shared transfers as cheap as possible. These will only be used within our private programme where necessary alterations to our schedule have occured.
These sixteen minibuses, coupled with the four other vehicles at our disposal, enable us to cope extremely well should your flight be delayed or if we experience a higher than usual level of traffic on any particular day. There's often the unforeseeable situation where snow causes major disruption outside of the resort in the low lying towns. Other companies operating either single vehicles or small fleets simply struggle to cope in these situations and can be forced to leave you waiting at the airport for your collection or, even worse, in resort when trying to catch your flight home.
Many of you in the UK will have seen on the BBC, the horrendous conditions experienced in December 2015 as many holiday makers were either leaving resort after their Christmas holiday or arriving for the New Year week. Admittedly, we did have some clients who had to reschedule their flights home but we were extremely proud in the fact that every single one of those in our care managed to get either to or from the airport safely that day. Many other people spent the night in emergency accommodation but all of our customers were transported to their destinations in our large fleet of 4x4 vehicles.
And what if you're looking for a little something special to start off your luxurious winter holiday? New to our fleet for last season was the Land Rover Discovery with its ebony leather interior. Reservations are not available online for this option so take advantage of our tailor made, conceirge service in our UK Office on +44 1323 351964 for the next level in refinement. Transfers from Geneva are priced at 340.00€ so why not treat yourself to a little something special this year?
If it's sheer practicality you're looking for then why not request our 4x4 Skoda Octavia Scout? We'll be introducing this into our fleet this season so as to minimise our environmental impact when transferring smaller parties. It comes with an automatic gearbox to handle the 184bhp and will have all of the expected refinements including leather interior and climate control throughout.
What about something completely different...? The iconic Land Rover Defender has come on a little since its early days. We're huge fans of the vehicle so purchased one of the very last ones ever made. We're extremely proud to be able to offer it to you for use both within resort and for those of you wanting something to make the start and end of your holiday a little something special.
This is no ordinary Land Rover Defender. It's been soundproofed. It comes with a plethora of in-built technolgy including DVD screens both front and rear, wifi, Apple TV and even a 240v supply if needing to power games consoles and laptops whilst en route. Get in touch if wanting to go the extra mile this winter...! These aren't library pictures... this is ours... yours to borrow...!
It's also easy to forget that when you're in the mountains, that the weather can change very quickly. Having the knowledge that your driver is highly experienced in alpine conditions and your vehicle has 4x4 capability can be a great relief when travelling on icy roads.
Our new fleet of Caravelles are all 4x4 and fitted with snowtyres to get us effortlessly through the snow when the roads are covered. Each is fully air-conditioned. You're assured of a smart, clean and safe ride every time.
Unlike many agencies now offering transfers throughout the Alps, we do not contract out any of our transfers to other transport companies. We can therefore guarantee your vehicle's quality and your driver's professionalism on every trip.
Recently, we also saw a huge investment in our child carrying capabilities. In association with Maxi-Cosi, we can now guarantee European approved child and baby seats for every single one of your family's transfers. Having two small children of our own, we realise the importance for your children to be seated securely when travelling and these will be supplied at no extra charge.

Several of our staff are returning for their sixth or seventh (in some cases tenth!) seasons with us, adding their vast experiences in alpine driving to our impeccable safety record. All have experience of at least two years driving in the alps or supercede that with a RoSPA Advanced Driving qualification or coach driving equivalent.
