Taxi drivers don't often speak English, so if you're not French, you might have trouble communicating with the taxi driver. Often taxis can be paid by card, but this is subject to an additional charge.

Val Thorens is the highest resort in Western Europe, located in the vast and well-known ski area of the Three Valleys (Trois Vallees).

Mike met us at the Geneva airport in the evening. Calmly and carefully took us to Val Thorens in 3 hours. There were child seats in the car for my daughters, and water bottles in the doors. Two weeks later, we left in the same car in the morning. I recommend this service to you!

We were worried about being picked up at the airport, cause it was the first time we booked a transfer on this site. But everything was very well. The driver met us with a sign, his Whatsapp was sent to us in advance. We got to the hotel quickly and comfortably.
