Executive Coach Travel: Included
Included in the price of the trip is return executive coach travel from the UK to Avoriaz. Most of our students will travel to resort this way, and although it’s quite a journey (approximately 16 hours from London), it is the best value option. All the coaches have comfortable seats, televisions and toilets, and college groups are put together on coaches, so on the way out you’ll have the chance to get excited with your mates. On the way back we’re fairly sure you’ll be asleep. Before we arrive we stop at a big supermarket to pick up good value supplies for the week ahead.
The standard package (£399) includes coach travel both ways, with a choice of four different pick up and drop off points:
Durham (central and hill pick-ups).
Grantham Train Station.
You are welcome to switch between pick up and drop off points as you may wish to head straight back up to Durham and get settled for the beginning of term.
Coaches will depart on Friday 5th January and arrive back in the UK a week later on Saturday 13th January. Note that there is no reduction for passengers choosing to travel in only one direction by coach as that empty seat still has to make its way across France in the other direction!
If you’d rather save time, there is the option of return flights from London Gatwick to Geneva. Flights depart on Saturday 6th January from Gatwick, and return to the UK on Saturday 13th January from Geneva, giving you an extra night at home and in resort. A transfer bus will be provided between Avoriaz and Geneva. Note that this upgraded option is limited and in previous years, the flights get snapped up immediately!
Flights will cost £119, in addition to the price of the trip, and include one checked in hold bag up to 20kg and hand luggage. Additional baggage charges and sports carriage will be as per the airlines cost rate.
If you are making your way to and from resort under your own steam, there will be a £40 reduction from the price of the trip. Please note that this reduction only applies when you are choosing your own transport for both legs of your journey.
If you find yourself in Geneva Airport or need to return there after the trip, but you’ve not booked on to our flights, we can still provide transfers. These are priced at:
One way: £39
Both ways: £69
