Public bus to Morzine
Another option for getting to Morzine is to take the public bus from Geneva.
Taking the bus from Geneva to Morzine is a good option to keep the costs down to an absolute minimum, but it will involve changes along the way and it will take significantly longer than taking a transfer.
When you jump on the bus at Geneva Gare Routiere, you’ll then have to head to Thanon-les-Bains on the T71 line, which takes approximately 1 hour. From there take the 91 bus to Morzine, which takes a further 50 minutes. Another option is to take the long bus from Geneva Airport to Cluses (T74) which takes 1 hour 20 minutes and then the bus from there to Morzine, which takes another 50 minutes.
Then once in Morzine, you will arrive in the centre and have to take a taxi or one of the local bus services to parts of Morzine and the neighbouring villages.
Minimum journey time – 2 hours.
Driving to Morzine
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. They have years of experience driving on these roads 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 takes around 10.5 hours in total from London, so if you’re not stopping off overnight along the way, it can take its toll.
Minimum journey time – 10 hours 30 minutes.
Travelling with Equipment
Not everyone travels with their own equipment, but some people choose to do so.
Many airlines offer the option to add sports luggage into your baggage for the flight. This does often come at an extra cost of around £35 per flight. It’s worth checking these details prior to booking your flight as it can vary from airline to airline.
Not all airport transfer companies cater for people bringing extra luggage. However, if you book your transfer with Ski-Lifts you can bring your skis free of charge as well as one item of hold luggage. When you book your transfer you can specify how many items of hold luggage and skis you would like to bring, that way we know in advance and can cater for your needs.
