We will book your pick up from Geneva Airport to meet the scheduled arrival time of the latest flight due in. We will schedule your pick up time from resort to allow for check in requirements for the earliest flight departure for your group.
How do we find our driver when we arrive at the airport?
A few days before you fly we will send you an SMS to advise your driver's name & emergency contact number for your arrival. You will be met on the Swiss side of the airport. Once you have collected your luggage you will go through customs into the arrivals hall where you should look for your driver. They will be waiting for you & will have a board displaying your lead name. Drivers are given as much information as possible to take you to your destination, however please ensure you bring with you contact details for your accommodation.
What if my flight is delayed?
Should your flight be delayed please contact us and we will endeavour to make all possible arrangements for you to be collected at a later time. You will be provided with your emergency contact numbers by SMS prior to travel.
How long will it take me to collect my luggage at Geneva Airport?
It depends on the type of luggage you are bringing & the time of year you are travelling. Even if you only are only travelling with hand luggage it could take 20 minutes to clear passport control & walk to the arrivals hall. Typically in summer with hold bags you could expect to be through the airport in approximately 30 - 45 minutes. In winter this is usually extended to 45 - 60 minutes.
What happens if the airline loses my luggage?
As soon as you realise there is a problem with your luggage please advise your driver immediately. If your luggage has been lost as you will need to liaise with the appropriate handling agents, at peak times their queues can be lengthy. Your driver will need to make arrangements either to wait, or for you to join a later transfer.
What happens on departure day?
We will send you an SMS the evening before you are due to leave the resort detailing your pick up time. We aim to arrive at Geneva 2 hours before your flight departure time to allow time for check in & security at this busy airport. You will be picked up outside your accommodation or at your specified pick up point at the stated time. Return pick up times will be confirmed when we have checked weather/road conditions & traffic warnings.
How do you cater for Children?
We are able to provide baby seats and boosters on request at no additional charge. Full details of your requirements must be highlighted on your booking enquiry form.
Will you carry my sports equipment?
Resort Rides are happy to carry extra equipment e.g. ski's, snowboards, mountain bikes, climbing gear. However you must advise us of the equipment your party will be travelling with so that we can make special arrangements for carriage where necessary.
Please note that if your party are travelling with 5 or more bikes a 2nd vehicle will be required & your transfer price will be adjusted accordingly.
I only need a transfer 1 way, can I still book with you?
Yes, we accept 1 way bookings.
Will you pickup/dropoff at an airport hotel or Geneva train station?
