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