Sunday flights to Chambery

Why would anyone choose to travel to the French Alps on a Saturday? On Sundays the roads are much quieter and airports much calmer, leading to smoother journeys and more relaxed travellers. You also get to ski blissfully quiet pistes on Saturday while everyone else is in a traffic jam! We fly from Gatwick or Manchester to Chambery, the closest airport to the French Alps. Catering is buy-on-board for both flights.

Please note our departure dates are Tuesdays from 14th December to 4th January inclusive. 


Inclusive transfers

80 minutes to La Tania
90 minutes to Courchevel 
2 hours to Val d'Isere


Please note that we are unable to supply car seats for children on the coaches but that the airlines will carry your own car seat.


Ski Carriage

Each set of skis/snowboard is
charged at £45 return if pre-booked.
Please let us know when booking
whether you will be taking skis or
boards as there is a limit to the number of skis carried on the Manchester flight. If equipment is not prebooked the charge is £60 at the airport and there is no guarantee
it will be accepted by the airline.
