Our friends over at YellowJersey have put together this funky infographic to show you what the deal is without having to search through ever Website!
The alps are stunning, mid Summer in Morzine
Super Morzine this way!
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!
