One of the drawbacks of every mountain location is accessibility. You can't land an airliner in a mountain valley, mountain trains are notoriously slow, and the winding mountain roads can be a daunting proposition to even the most experienced drivers (especially in the depths of winter).
Unfortunately Serre Chevalier is no exception to this rule and the main reason that we chose to set up The Alpine Transfer Company was to make Serre Chevalier and its neighbouring resorts more accessible to members of the public who do not want to drive to the resort, or hire a rental vehicle.
We have made this guide so that you can compare the various Serre Chevalier transport options that are open to you. We have tried to be as objective as possible and can only hope that once you have studied the alternatives in detail you will choose to travel to Serre Chevalier with us!
