Ferry or Tunnel ? ferry to france

The Tunnel is the quickest way, though not the cheapest - always book in advance and look for a deal. If you just turn up and drive on, prices can be up to 3 times more expensive.

P&O ferries ( poferries.com )

Operate from Dover to Calais and have up to 25 crossings a day in case you miss one. Sea France also operate this route but are less frequent.

DFDS Seaways  ( dfdsseaways.co.uk )

The newest ferry operator with some fantastic brand new ships. Operate from Dover to Calais and Dover to Dunkirk. There are at present 4 crossings a day for the popular Dover route.

Brittany Ferries ( brittanyferries.com )

Operate from Portsmouth to Cherbourg and Cean is another good option especially if you live nearby or can use the night sailing as your overnight stop.

Of course you don’t have to drive the journey all in one. There are plenty of motels just off the motorway with rooms per night for as little as £18 for a double. Check out the Ibis, Sofitel, Mercure, Novotel, Formule1, Etap, Red Roof and Motel6 hotel websites for latest prices.

Flying plane to ski resorts

Although flying may seem the easiest means of transport, with the hassle of getting to and from the airport, latest flying security controls and rip off ski and board carriage costs ... door to door times and expense can be greater than they first appear. Still, with early booking and crafty comparison websites, good bargains can still be had.

Chambery in France or Geneva in Switzerland are the airports with the most transfer options to La Tania and are therefore more economical for small groups. Grenoble and Lyon (St Exupery) are also close, but with less transfer options are only economical for groups in multiples of 8 or over 20.

We won’t list all the various airlines, schedules and costs here or you’ll be here all night, but call us for more info or a quote.

Airport Transfers

Transfer from the airport to resort by private car or minibus is about 70 per person return depending on the airport you fly into and numbers on the minibus.

Contact Three Vallee Transfers 3vt.co.uk with a code Andrea will give you on booking for a 5% discount on private transfers.
