Travelling to Megève couldn't be easier. The resort is within easy distance of Geneva airport - and easily accessible by rail and road.

There are lots of easy travel options for getting to the Alps

Firstly, a few handy travel and time-saving tips

  • Going by plane. Always pre-book additional baggage to cover skis and boots.
  • By rail. Eurostar ski train services are available to book from early summer. It’s best to book early for peak dates. Check out Snowcarbon’s useful website. Or you can book through Rail Europe and national rail websites.

Alternatively you can pre-book a private transfer service, or arrange a hire car. Public transfer services are also available. See information below.
  • By car. Check on safety and legal requirements. Also consider breaking the journey and enjoying an overnight stop en route.
  • Before you go:
    Don’t forget to check out SB Ski’s latest holiday Offers & Discounts.

    Save time in resort by hiring skis, boots and equipment through SB Ski. No need to pre-book.

It’s easy motorways nearly all the way to Sallanches, then the last 13km is uphill into Megève. The AA provides useful driving information and a detailed route planner. From Geneva airport to Megève (87km) takes just over one hour.

When driving from the UK to the Alps you need to pay road tolls. Pay by credit card, or in local currency – euros or Swiss francs. In France, you can buy a Télépéage window sticker, which allows quick passage through the toll gates.
