The frosty mornings have returned all too quickly and we are looking at the beginning of another winter! 2018/19. I really can’t believe how quickly summer went.
Please don’t forget to book your Geneva airport transfer as soon as you book your flights and accommodation to avoid any disappointment, and of course always book with a reputable firm. There are many dodgy transport operators out there that shouldn’t be working.
If you a looking for an Uber taxi in Chamonix then, sorry, it doesn’t exist in Chamonix but………… you can download the Chamonixcabs Application on Apple or Android to order your Cab in just the same way.
The Chamonixcabs App is in English, it tells you where you are, or, you can choose an address.
You can pay by either Credit Card in advance or Cash in the vehicle AND it tells you how much it will cost BEFORE you book so that there are no hidden surprises.
So, if you are planning a trip to Chamonix and want to use Taxis to get around then please dont hesitate to use our App.
The start of winter 2016/17 can only be described as terrible. No snow to speak of over Xmas and New year, an average snowfall at the beginning of January followed by one of the hottest Februarys in years.
However, March is now here and we have gone back to winter, snow has fallen down to the valley floor again and since the 1st of March (today is the 4th) some areas have seen 1 metre of snow above 2000m.
Conditions at altitude are now considered “good” and if the forecasted precipitation arrives then the end of the season could just be the best of the season too.
The UTMB 2016 is just around the corner and many people will now be looking for the best method of getting form Geneva airport to Chamonix.
If you are travelling with your family and/or friends the best thing to do is book a “private” transfer from the airport. This way the cost is kept down per person and you won’t have a long tedious wait in the airport.
Contact us for more information about our private transfers.
The latest snow forecast for the Alps is looking very good!
If you have not already booked your airport transfer now might be a good time. Â An early dump of snow followed by cold weather is the perfect start to the season and means that Xmas and New Year is more likely to be “Snow Sure”.
We will of course be following this and reporting as soon as we see the white stuff falling out of the sky.
Sometimes (often) its difficult to find a Taxi in Chamonix, especially in the evening when you would rightly expect to find at least one sitting in the taxi rank outside the train station.
The best way to prepare for an evening out in Chamonix is to pre-book your taxi, this means that your driver will be exactly where you request at exactly the time you request with the appropriate vehicle for the number of people that are in your group.
At Chamonixcabs we operate with a number of vehicles including our Nissan Leaf 100% electric vehicle that allows us to move people around the valley with ZERO EMISSIONS.
When visiting Chamonix there are a large number of great activities, one is to visit Park Merlet in Les Houches, Coupeau. Â
With children its a wonderful day out, there is a great Restaurant with fantastic views and a number of wonderful walks where you will spot lots of wildlife such asÂ Chamois, bouquetins, mouflons, marmottes and dear.
Getting there can be easy, there is a Bus service from Les Houches centre (Marie) that stops by the Train station in Les Houches and costs 2 Euros. Â This will still require a bit of a walk but it will be worth it.
We also offer transport to the Park either in one of our minibuses or our Eco taxi from anywhere in the Chamonix Valley.
