THE FLIGHT

Every airline will offer something different, some include the bicycle as hold luggage some don't, with some airlines your ticket will cost more and the bike is free.

It's a mine field out there but if you look hard enough at the T&C's you will find what you're after.

THE AIRLINES

Easyjet recently reduced their bike bag weight allowance down to 25kg and there was uproar, it soon went back to the 32kg weight we know and expect, well done. Fly with BA however and it's a free cheese and pickle sanger and free bike carriage but costs a little more.

Flying

The only airport you would consider flying to is Geneva. It is a 1 ½ hour drive to Morzine from the airport. The only other options would be Lyon, Grenoble or Chambery, but this would nearly double your journey time, and make a transfer extremely expensive.

GENEVA AIRPORT

Geneva Airport is very efficient and usually takes 30 minutes to get through arrivals and grab your stuff. Flights can be very cheap but remember it can be up to £40 each way to take your bike on most airlines and if its overweight they will charge you extra.

Hire car prices vary dramatically but as of writing 6 days rental of a medium sized car, with space for bikes and 2 people was £280, ex charges with Europcar.

Once you have cleared arrivals you will need a transfer up to Morzine which takes approximately 1 hour 15 minutes. We recommend booking your transfer from Geneva Airport with Skiidy Gonzales. If you book with MTB Beds you will receive a discount code making it even more economical. No other company has as many vans as Skiidy Gonzales in the summer, which means your transfer to Morzine will be quick and easy. The MTB Beds code allows you 10% discount off the total price. How much money you spend on beer at the airport is entirely up to you!

Watch this space...

On July 12th France announced the latest measures to help combat a fourth wave of Covid-19, in an attempt to keep the country open and not risk a surge of the delta variant, such as the UK has seen. These measures are designed to avoid a fourth lockdown, and essentially make life normal for some, and very abnormal for others.

If you're vaccinated, travelling to Europe during the summer and Autumn months looks to be quite straight forward. At the time of writing the governments of Europe have come to the understanding that if you have been jabbed, you can travel. Restrictions remain in place for countries listed as red, with most of Europe adopting a form of traffic light system.

Double vaccinated? 2 weeks since your second jab? Want to take your bike on a holiday? If you’re in England, from July 19th Europe’s best bike parks are back at your fingertips, and we hope very soon for Wales and Scotland too, from Northern Ireland the date is the 25th July.

Summer is back, and we are STOKED! If you’re not double jabbed, and won’t be anytime soon, keep scrolling, we’re going to lay out what happens from July 19th, then what we think will happen next.

Summer is here. The lifts in and around Morzine are turning and the trails are open. We would normally be welcoming our first clients for the summer season this Saturday, unfortunately things did not work out. We’re here, but you guys aren’t and to be honest it sucks as much for us as it does for you.
