Chamonix Uber?

You might be wondering if Uber operate in Chamonix, the answer is no they dont.

No Uber

No Uber

The problem for Uber in Chamonix is that the demand fluctuates too much, from no demand for quite a few months of the year through to mega demand over Christmas and New Year and the busy months of the ski season.

The good news is that provided you arm yourself with a good contact number (may i suggest 00 33 (0)6 79 01 46 02, me) then you should be OK.  Taxis in France are regulated by the government and as such the prices are too.  Firstly your driver will have passed various exams (8 in total) including a type of “knowledge”.  The driver also has passed a criminal record check and will be in possession of a “Carte Professional” with a photo and name of your driver for extra security, this will be displayed on the windscreen.  The driver is obliged to use the taxi meter which (contrary to popular belief) is not very expensive around the valley and is way cheaper than a VTC.

We operate all year round and even during this hard time of COVID we are available.

For enquiries or even to book a cab contact us on.

06 79 01 46 02  for a french phone OR,

00 33 6 79 01 46 02  for international phones.

Chamonix Taxi

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.

TO BOOK A TAXI CALL US ON – 0679014602

Chamonix ECO Taxi

Nissan Leaf

Nissan Leaf 100% Electric

Chamonix cabs are the first and (so far) the only Taxi/Transfer company in the area offering an “Eco” service with 100% electric cars. 

Summer in Chamonix is about to kick off with the “fete de la musique” and then the Mont-Blanc Marathon followed by a constant stream of events right through until the end of September.

During the summer we are available non stop for in-Valley “Taxi” services.  We have a large selection of vehicles available from Eco electric cars right through to luxury Mercedes vehicles, we can move any number of people and cover any distance short and long.

Call us any time on 00 33 (0)6 79 01 46 02

Chamonix Eco Taxi Cab service

Its a project that has taken quite a lot of time getting off the ground for many reasons, the most recent being “Nissan” taking 2 months to transport a vehicle 500 Km’s!

After discussions with many people in Chamonix from our regular clients and hotels right through to the Chamonix tourist office and Marie we are finally up and running.

The Idea is very simple, provide a taxi/cab service in the Chamonix Valley (and beyond if possible) with a 100% electric vehicle.  The benefits are two fold, firstly we will be moving people without producing any local pollution at all (which in Chamonix is desperately needed) and secondly we are actively promoting the use of electric vehicles in the Chamonix valley.

On this second note, if anyone reading this (anyone?) is interested in finding out more about electric vehicles you are more than welcome to contact us and come have a look, drive etc with a view to potentially increasing the number of these cars on the road.
