Whilst Meribel is with quick and easy reach from all nearby airports, each airport has its own pros and cons.

Chambery is the nearest airport to Meribel and is also the smallest of the four airports. Due to being just over 100km from Meribel, the short transfer time can often be appealing to travellers. However, Chambery tends to offer less frequent flights meaning that they can be more expensive.

Whilst all airports and transfer routes will be busier during peak travel periods, routes between Lyon and Grenoble are known to experience traffic delays during peak periods such as December and February. Geneva is generally the best prepared to deal with large volumes of travellers.

Flying to Meribel

Geneva to Meribel
Geneva is often considered to be the convenient airport when getting to Meribel. Despite a slightly longer transfer time, flights are more regular in comparison to other nearby airports and therefore often cheaper. There’s also two main routes from Geneva to Meribel which means traffic can be reduced during busy periods.

Another advantage of Geneva is the short flight time. Almost all flights to Geneva from within Europe are under two hours. From London you will reach Geneva in just 1 hour and 40 minutes and from Paris just 1 hour and 10 minutes.

2. Trains to Meribel

Travelling to Meribel by train gives you the rare opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. Travel during the day and you will be treated to the breathtaking views of Lake Annecy and other surrounding areas as you cruise towards the slopes.

Which is the closest train station to Meribel?
Meribel doesn’t have its own train station but travelling here by train couldn't be easier. Moutiers train station (officially called the 'Gare de Moûtiers-Salins-Brides-les-Bains') is just a 25 minutes drive from Meribel and therefore acts as Meribel’s train station. It offers regular services to London and throughout France, including Paris.

The short journey between Moutiers and Meribel couldn’t be easier whether it be by car or the local bus service. The bus offers services between the two towns for around €12.

Eurostar to Meribel
The Eurostar runs from London St Pancras and Ashford International to the town of Moutiers, which is only 25 minutes drive from Meribel. Recent changes to the service mean that the Eurostar will transport you to France and from here, you will change to an SNCF train for the remainder of the journey.

Trains to Meribel

The train that leaves London on Friday evening arrives early Saturday morning in Moutiers. If you are staying with Ski Basics, when you arrive in Moutiers you will be met by a Ski Basics driver who will take you to a café in Meribel for breakfast. Your Chalet manager will greet you there and arrange ski passes and ski hire while you enjoy some hot tea and coffee and breakfast.

The Ski train is a great option for those that want to make the most of an extra day on the slopes on Saturday. However, if there are members in your party that aren’t so keen to head straight out on the mountain there are plenty of nice cafes, restaurants, shopping and even a spa for you to enjoy during the day. Ski Basics Chalets will be ready for you to move into in the afternoon and your driver will take your luggage off your hands so that you are free to enjoy Meribel for the day.

Alternatively, the train that departs from London on Saturday morning arrives in Moutiers late Saturday afternoon. Again, if staying with Ski Basics, your driver will take you from Moutiers straight to your chalet where you will be met by your Chalet staff and Manager.

You can take a look at the Eurostar ski-train timetable and book online at www.eurostar.com or you can call Eurostar in the UK on Tel. 0870 160 6600

Top tips for train ticket booking
Train ticket prices vary throughout the year and depend on a number of different factors. Things such as date of travel, your age, your destination, the size of your group and how far in advance you have booked.

Based on this, we recommend that you always purchase your tickets as far in advance as possible. Eurostar tickets usually go on sale from mid-july and this is when the prices will be at their lowest.

Advance booking will not only ensure you get the best price possible but also that you’re able to travel on your desired day. Demand for the trains can be particularly high during the peak periods such as, Christmas, New Year, February half-term and Easter.


3. Buses & Coaches to Meribel

London to Meribel coach

Pros and cons of getting a coach to Meribel are explored below:

Pros Cons
Eco-friendly mode of transport Travelling with a large group
Easy, direct and stress-free Avoid airport queues and transfers
The cheapest way to travel Increased journey time

4. Driving to Meribel

Driving has always been a popular way to travel to the alps. The pros and cons of driving are explored below:

Pros Cons
Driving to Meribel grants you freedom to take the journey at your own pace Solely responsible for your own journey
Cost effective for groups splitting the overall cost, such as groups of friends May seem initially expensive when considering the cost of crossings, tolls and petrol
You will not be limited by baggage allowance Increased journey time
You’ll also have the added convenience of having your car with you, should you wish to use it around the resort You may be required to drive during heavy snowfall

Driving to Meribel from the UK: Things to consider

Time and distance
Your route and journey duration is dependent on whether you decide to cross the channel via ferry or the Euro Tunnel. It will also depend on where in the UK you’re travelling from.

The quickest way to cross the channel is on the Euro Tunnel. The crossing takes just 35 minutes to travel from Folkestone to Calais. In comparison, the ferry takes approximately 90 minutes. The ferry leaves from Dover and also takes you to Calais.

Once you have arrived in Calais, the journey to Meribel is just over 900km and usually takes approximately 9 hours and 15 minutes.

Getting an early evening crossing and staying overnight in the hotel once in France, is a great option. This breaks up the journey and enables you to get a good night’s sleep. If this sounds like the option for you, we recommend stopping off in either Reims or Dijon. Reims is around a 2.5-3 hours drive from Calais.

If you would prefer to keep driving once in France, driving on to Moutiers throughout the day on Saturday is another great option. Once you arrive in Moutiers, you’re just a short drive up the mountain from Meribel. Meaning, you can get a good night's rest on Saturday night and head straight up to Meribel on Sunday morning. Well rested and ready to enjoy the quiet change-over day slopes. If you’re staying with Ski Basics and would like to hit the slopes first thing, your chalet manager will be able to meet you with your ski passes and store your bags for you. Later in the afternoon, once you’re finished on the slopes, your bags will be ready and waiting in your chalet. Along with your chalet hosts and freshly baked afternoon tea.

For help planning your route and an estimated cost of your journey, use the AA route planner.

Costs

Channel crossings
As will all convenience, the shorter crossing time on the Euro Tunnel is charged at a premium. The crossing costs around £85 each way, compared to approximately £35 each way on the ferry.

Bookings can be quickly and easily online for both crossings at www.eurotunnel.com or www.poferries.com.

Tolls
However, the amount you pay to drive on motorways (auto-routes) will depend on the type of vehicle you’re driving and how far you’ve travelled within that toll zone. To keep things simple, the cost of driving within each zone is clearly marked as you approach the toll. You will receive a ticket when entering a toll zone and pay upon exit, either in cash or by card. An approximate guideline for the cost of tolls each way is €70-80.

Driving to Meribel

Alternatively, you can use an automatic system that allows you to pass quickly through tolls in the ‘télépéage’ lane. Télépéage lanes are clearly marked with a T. All costs for tolls are then automatically charged to your chosen card on a monthly basis.

In order to get your automatic toll badge, all you need to do is apply for a ‘Liber-t’ toll tag through SANEF and register your details, including a card on the site.

French road laws
It’s important to note that there are a small number of additional requirements when driving in France, in comparison to the UK. You are required by French road law to have things such as a first aid kit, warning triangle, high-visibility jacket all within easy reach of the driver. You’re also required to apply headlight converters to your headlights when driving through France. Whilst you may not always be asked to show proof of these items, you risk being fined should you travel without them.

Driving to Meribel is a popular and enjoyable experience but we do recommend familiarising yourself with what’s required and ensuring you have everything before heading off. More information on what you’ll need as well as, other useful information can be found on the Euro Tunnel website.

Snow chains
Road access to Meribel is extremely well established and maintained throughout the season. However, it’s important not to underestimate the challenges that come with driving on the snow. Whilst snow clearance is frequent in and around Meribel, conditions can change quickly and driving up and down the mountain can be challenging even for those experienced driving snowy conditions. So, it’s important to always have your snow chains easily accessible.

We would also recommend practicing putting on and taking off your snow chains before travelling.

It’s important to note that in some parking you are limited to a maximum of 8 consecutive days. While a 7-day pass allows you to leave and re-enter the car park as often as you like while keeping your space.

Spaces cannot be reserved in advance and you can get tickets from machines situated in the car parks. We recommend always checking the information provided in your chosen car park as these details are subject to change.

Street Parking
There is also on-street parking in Meribel and we highly recommend always checking the cost and terms of this before leaving your car. Parking wardens regularly patrol the streets and issue parking fines to those parking outside of the outlined terms.

Top tips on parking your vehicle:
Leave your car in gear with the handbrake off as it can freeze, and you can break the cabling.

Lift the windscreen wipers away from the window in case of heavy snowfall. If there has been heavy snowfall, clear the snow from your windscreen by hand rather than with your wipers. The snow can be very heavy and damage the motor that drives the wipers.

Remember where you parked. This may seem obvious, but it can be surprisingly hard to identify your own car once it has been covered in snow.

There are a number of service providers that offer this safe, luxurious and high-speed service from nearby airports to and from Meribel.

Kelly Bain - March 25, 2018

We had an absolutely brilliant holiday and it's completely down to the Ski Basics experience. Everything was so well organised and all the hassle that can come with skiing was taken away by our driver, chalet host and chalet manager. We will be booking with Ski Basics again for next year's trip. Thanks for making it so great!
