If you have booked a private transfer then there will be no delay and we can depart as soon as you arrive in the arrivals hall.
If you have booked a shared transfer we aim to depart within 1 hr. If other flights on your transfer are delayed or baggage has been misplaced/ reports need to be filled out: it could be a little longer. Our goal is to get you to your destination as safely and efficiently as possible.
Our transfer times are indicated at the bottom of this page. They refer to actual driving time to the centre of the resort in question. These are approximate and assume good weather and traffic conditions.
Yes, of course. Our license enables us to pick up passengers anywhere in the Canton de Geneve so hotels, the train station and other pick up points are not a problem, but a Small travel surcharge may apply .
Additionally if you are arriving on the French side of GVA you must inform us. Any different pick up points must be indicated at the time of booking and may be liable to an additional charge.However its a simple 5 min walk within the airport to the Swiss side.
This will be indicated on your booking confirmation ticket. For instance most transfers would be at least 4 hrs before your flight departure time. Having provided a suitable mobile contact number to Le Praz Transfers you will normally receive a text the evening before confirming your pick up time. However, Le Praz Transfers reserve the right to change this time. If bad weather or adverse traffic conditions are predicted it may be necessary to modify this time. Half Term and French school Holidays can add 2 to 4 hours to a normally short transfer time. Despite what airlines may say: as regular travelers we know it can take 90mins to clear security and some gates are a 15min walk from security.
This will be the same place as your arrival point and the address specified on your original booking form. If you wish to change this to another point in the same resort you can do so but we can normally only accept a change no less than 48hrs before your scheduled pick up time. You must contact Le Praz Transfers with the numbers provided. You must be ready with all baggage as any small delay could cause you to miss your flight.

What is a shared transfer/ How does it work/ How much time do I have to wait at the Airport.
Le Praz Transfers has two goals when planning shared transfers: 1. To minimise waiting time to the client 2. To ensure that no client with a confirmed reservation is left behind at the airport because of circumstances outside of their control (such as delays with flights, customs or baggage).
For arrivals at Geneva airport, clients whose flights are scheduled to arrive at a similar time will be grouped to travel together. Our aim is that our clients should not wait more than an hour at the airport before the departure of the transfer.
Top tip: If you want to leave the airport as soon as you arrive, you should book one of our competitively priced private transfers.
Many circumstances outside of our control (such as flight, baggage or customs delays, traffic conditions, other passengers), can affect the planning for shared transfers. We appreciate your patience when delays occur.
Where unforeseen circumstances have arisen causing delays, we will always keep clients informed of the steps that we are taking to minimise waiting times, such as moving passengers to another of our transfer services (in the high season we have over 10 departures a day), or to a service with one of our partner operators.
In case of delays, we do ask that you support our drivers and office staff that are at all times doing the best they can to ensure that you leave the airport as soon as possible.
Changing a booking
If you need to change the time or date of one of your transfers, we will do our best to do so without charge providing it does not interupt our schedules.
If you need to make any changes to your booking you should notify the office by email at least 7 Days before your transfer. After this time we cannot always accommodate a change. Some changes may incur additional charges – we will advise you in if this is the case.
If you need to change your in-resort address for pickup, this should be done by email at least 48hrs before your transfer date. After this time we cannot always accommodate a change of address, in which case we may ask you to go to a central meeting point (such as the train station). Le Praz Transfers will not be liable for the cost of any supplementary transport needed to get to this meeting point from your accommodation.
If you need to change the time or date of one of your transfers, we will do our best to do so without charge this may constitute a cancellation of your original booking and in such a case, our cancellation policy will apply. In that case you will need to make a new transfer booking and pay for this new fare.
