Although our holidays don’t include flights, many of our guests still choose to fly. Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Chambery are the most accessible airports for Tignes. Below are links to some of the airlines offering flights to these destinations. When booking your flights, aiming to land any time after 1pm and to take off any time before 2pm will best suit the check in and check out times at your chalet
The seemingly endless list of problems with flying, is making driving to the Alps more and more popular. The convenience of stopping en route and packing in all the clothes, the skis, the boots and grandma at no extra expense is hard to beat.
The journey time from Calais to Tignes takes roughly 10 hours with tolls costing approximately 140€ each way. We are happy to offer advice on the best routes and places to stay over night if you wish.
From the UK, there are number of ferry routes to France and of course the high speed Channel Tunnel trains which save a lot of time!
Once in resort, it’s very unlikely that you will need your car until it’s time to head home and so we strongly recommend pre-booking parking in one of the dedicated car parks. Unfortunately free-parking isn’t an option but there are a number of secure over and underground car parks costing between 60€ and 95€ for 7-8 days. Parking spaces can be reserved in advance on the resort’s parking website.
Tignes is one of the best resorts to travel to by train. There is a large international train station in Bourg St Maurice, the town at the bottom of the mountain, which is served by Eurostar trains from London, Ebbsfleet and Ashford. There are also indirect services from the UK via Paris.
From Bourg train station, there are public busses which run up to Tignes or we can arrange a taxi for you which takes approximately 40 minutes and costs between 75€ and 100€ depending on the number of passengers.
