Val d'Isère is not far from several different airports, so you can choose to fly into Lyon-Saint Exupéry (220 km), Grenoble (200 km), Geneva (180 km), or Chambéry (134 km). Aer Lingus, British Airways, and KLM-Air France operate direct flights from London, Edinburgh, and Dublin. However, if you choose to fly into Chambéry, note that many of the flights operate only on the weekends. For a cheaper option, easyJet flies direct from London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Belfast.
Thanks to many travel options, it is easy to get from the airport to Val d'Isère. You have the choice of regular bus lines, car hire, taxi, tour operators, or train. Private helicopter transfer can even be arranged if you want to add an aerial view of the Alps to your list of Val d'Isère memories.
Regular bus lines are a popular choice and are also the most convenient. Altibus and the British company Ben's Bus handle transfers from Geneva, Lyon, and Chambéry. Ben's Bus run between the resort and Grenoble.
Return ticket prices range from €70-113, depending on the airport you choose. These can be booked in advance online or purchased directly at the Lyon, Chambéry, and Grenoble airports. If you take the bus from Geneva, you must book your ticket in advance. For all of the airports, however, it is best to book early if you are travelling during peak times.
While Val d'Isère is not entirely car-free, they do encourage you to park your car and leave it for the duration of your stay. Cars are even banned from the centre of the resort, and in general, parking is highly regulated (the authorities do not hesitate to hand out parking fines). If you're worried about where to park, book your parking space online for three-31 day stays. Do so at www.parkingvaldisere.com. This is highly recommended if you are planning to be here during any school holiday period.
Inside the resort area, guests can take advantage of free shuttle bus services that run from 7 a.m to 8 p.m or midnight, depending on the bus line. There is also one night bus line that runs from 8 p.m to around 2 a.m. Exact timetable information is available at the bus stops.
