How to get to Morzine by Driving Yourself

People do prefer to bring their own vehicle to Morzine and vouch that it can give you more flexibility over flying to Geneva.

However, we stress that the roads in the Alps can be tricky to manoeuvre — and that’s why we only use the most experienced and best drivers in the area who really know the roads in terms of experience and safety. They have years upon years of experience driving on these roads multiple times per day – and as you can guess, they’re doing this driving in the trickiest of conditions.

That’s not even mentioning that driving is the least relaxing way of travelling to Morzine (if you’re the driver)! The drive from London to Morzine takes at least 10.5 hours in total for example, and 16 hours from Manchester –  so if you’re not stopping off overnight along the way (you should), the drive can take its toll.

Minimum journey time – 10 hours 30 minutes. Pros and cons of driving:

Tick Flexibility
cross Long journey time
cross Drive can be tiring
cross Relying on no traffic
cross Struggle with lots of luggage
cross Difficult driving on mountain roads
