SCHEDULED FLIGHTS

Our flights are with scheduled carriers which means your travel is backed by the vast resources and experience of major international airlines.

Our recommended flight times will allow you time to travel comfortably between your arrival airport and your chosen resort in Switzerland, which is why most of the chosen flights depart in the morning and return late afternoon or evening. Flights can be arranged at other times but this may result in an overnight stay en route.

Using different Swiss airports for your outward and return flights is allowed, subject to any supplement that may be payable. Outward and return flights must be with the same airline. This is particularly beneficial when you are planning a two centre holiday.

Short breaks and other durations can be arranged at all our featured destinations plus many other cities and resorts. Our knowledge and experience will enable us to help with your own tailor-made requirements.

easyJet

We wish to offer the widest choice of flying to Switzerland from your local airport.

EasyJet offer a wide range of flights from around the UK to Geneva and also a good service from London Gatwick to Zurich. They have continued to improve their service as a low cost airline with pre-assigned seats, which we will reserve at the time of booking including speedy boarding and/or increased leg room - prices vary by route/flight and will be confirmed at the time of booking. In addition we will include your boarding pass with our documentation which means that you just have to go to the bag drop area at the airport.

Please note that easyJet flights to Geneva are not suitable for holidays to the Graubünden region due to the long transfer time.

We will require an increased, non-refundable, deposit of at least £250 per person as payment for the flight seats will have to be made at the time of booking.Your holiday with EasyJet is fully ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Airmiles and Own Flights

You can use your AirMiles and save money. If you book your flights with British Airways we offer a reduction of £150 per person with AirMiles. You just need to discuss the flight schedules with us to check your onward connections, before making your flight reservations with AirMiles. If you prefer to book your own flights we can still make all the arrangements for your onward travel from Zurich and Geneva airports to the resort as well as the hotel reservations. Deduct £150 from the prices shown on the website.


TRAVEL IN SWITZERLAND from airport to your resort

There is little point in having a reliable and comfortable flight without an equally comfortable journey from the airport to your holiday resort. The onward journey is therefore by train with comfort, room to move around and the opportunity for a meal or refreshments. Swiss Federal Railways are amongst the most efficient in the world and operate with the precision of a Swiss watch! An added convenience is that there are main line stations at Zurich and Geneva airports and on arrival at many resorts you will be met by the hotel’s porter and transferred to your hotel. For most resorts there is a train departing from the airport every hour – so no waiting around. Your itinerary will show your recommended train times.


First Class Rail  travel is available at a supplement of £38 (no additional charge for children under 16). 


Flight Luggage

Swiss Railways has a unique system which means you can check-in your luggage at the UK airport and then, depending on where you are staying, it will either be delivered to your hotel or you can collect it from the local station. For the return journey the luggage goes direct from a number of resorts to the UK airport. To ensure that you receive your luggage the same day, your flight will need to land in Switzerland by either 11.30 or 13.00 depending on your destination and for your return journey your flight must depart after 16.00.

The flight luggage charge is £16 per item in each direction plus a ‘one-off’ express shipping charge of £20 in each direction. This service is only available to certain stations – please check with us for up to date information. Please note: in some cases baggage may have to be collected at the Swiss airport on the return journey and checked-in with the airline.
