Josephine Price reviews luxury Alpine transfer Snowdrone
Details: Transfer from Val d’Isère ski resort to Geneva Airport, VW Caravelle. Time: 2hr 45min.
Booking: Booking online, by phone or by email is easy and efficient. Snowdrone also partners with high-end tour operators such as Powder White, Consensio and Ski Val and travel agents such as Oxy Ski.
Pickup: A text message the day before the journey confirms the pick-up time, the driver’s name and a contact number. The following day, a driver turns up on time in reception to collect us and help carry luggage.
Vehicle: The smart VW Caravelle, with tinted windows and individual climate controls, seats eight passengers on three banks of leather seats. The long wheelbase guarantees ample space for skis and large suitcases.
Entertainment: The service offers an abundance of entertainment options. Each of the three banks of leather seats is fitted with an iPad loaded with films, music and news applications and a multi-headphone. Wi-fi is available and USB ports with spare leads offer charging facilities.
Last word: With plenty of space to stretch out, the luxurious private transfer is a great complement to an exhilarating but exhausting week on the slopes.
