      Geneva Annecy

      Annecy Mar 31, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      We are a group of 9. We land at Geneva airport on 14th May at 8.20 AM.

      We would 1st like to wander around Geneva for a few hours

      Then go to ANNECY in late afternoon (preferably by road -- old??), and stay the night there.

      Reach Lausanne by the 15th May afternoon. (Next day -- 16th-- want to visit Gruyere and Broc and then onto Interlaken)

      We will have the Swiss train Railpass.

      How do we work this out, if it is feasible?? Especially the Geneva- Annecy -Lausanne portion. The costing should not be too high.

      Thanks

      How long does it take from Lyon airport to train station

      Lyon Mar 12, 2014 at 6:25 AM

      Hi, I know there is a shuttle type train that goes from the airport in Lyon to the various train stations, I have used it but I do not remember how long it takes to get from the airport to Lyon Part Dieu and how frequent these transfers are. Since I will be on quite a tight schedule, travelling to Clermont Ferrand, every minute is vital to complete booking my train tickets so I really need your help, please.

    • Annecy by rental car from Nice - is it worth visiting / driving (travelling end Jan 2014)?

      Annecy Dec 14, 2013 at 10:22 PM

      Hello, my wife and I intend driving from Nice at the end of January for 3 days and then on to Paris. Could I get some help in making my decisions: (apologies for the copious questions)
      Is winter the fine to visit Annecy?
      Are the roads safe - will soft tyres do on the rental car or do I need chains?
      Do I understand correctly that the best route from Nice would be by via Geneva?
      Do I need to book accommodation in advance my stay to get a 'reasonable' price?
      To travel to Paris from Annecy do I need to head towards Lyon?
      If the questions are too many, I am happy to do the research if I am pointed in the right direction.
      Thanks in advance - Pratul

      I'm looking for high-end/top of the line type of gear for about 5 days. A few places online have "performance" packages for just a bit over 100 euro (for 5 days). I wouldn't mind paying that or even a bit more for good equipment.

      Any recommendations as to where to look, and also a place with a decent customer service, so that they can fix any issues that may come up, exchange gear midway, wax boards/sharpen edges if needed?

    • Train question....Chamonix to Les Houches

      Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Nov 24, 2013 at 4:35 PM

      We will be arriving to Chamonix from Zurich Airport by train on December 24th. We are travelling with a Swiss Transfer rail ticket that allows us to travel all the way to Chamonix but Les Houches is extra. The train we are travelling on to Chamonix continues on to Les Houches. Is there any way to buy tickets directly from the conductor so that we do not have to get off the train and wait for the next one? I have tried to book the ticket on the SNCF website and it should cost 19.5 Euros for the whole family but there is no way to have the ticket delivered to us. There does not appear to be an option to buy online and PRINT the tickets. If I select mail delivery and enter United States I get re-directed to Rail Europe where I will be charged a total of 65 Euros which seems outrageous for the 15 minute journey. Any ideas?
