Summer Travel



The main airport used is Geneva however Chambery, Lyon and Grenoble are also used. As a rough guide: Lots of carriers fly to Geneva and hence you can often get the best prices by flying to Geneva if you hunt around. Geneva also has the most frequent bus service to and from Tignes. Lyon has a number of carriers and a reasonably frequent bus service and can be a good option. Ryanair and Easyjet fly to Grenoble and you can get some good prices however you will need to get a hire car or a private transfer to get you to Tignes. Chambery is the closest airport however you may find it difficult to get a good price.
