The Eurostar offers overnight trains direct from London St Pancras to Moutiers (about 25mins from Courchevel, at the foot of the mountain). From there you can get a twenty-minute taxi up to the resort. If you don’t mind overnight travel and can sleep on trains (or are willing to forego sleep) then this can be one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to reach the Alps. Plus, no extra charge for a ski carriage. You just need to be able to carry all you can bring…..
It’s far better for the environment and means you don’t need to take the day off work to travel as you can work on the train or choose an overnight option. Find out more here.
If you’re arriving by air then you’ll probably fly into either Grenoble, Lyon or Geneva. The following transfer companies offer airport transfers, either private or sometimes shared:
3 Valley Transfers
Snowbound Transfers to Courchevel
There are buses from the airport but you will need to change at Moutiers and they’re not cheap so if there is a few of you it often cheaper to share a transfer.
The train is the cheapest option from the airports, but again this will involve several changes and the trains are somewhat infrequent.
It’s about a 9hr drive once in France to reach Courchevel. The benefits of driving are no luggage restrictions and the option of an extra day skiing during a week’s holiday but keep in mind the tolls can be quite pricey on the motorways.
