PowderCab Alpine Resort Transfers operate low cost resort transfers to Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, Samoens, Morillon & more since 2005. We offer shared & private, door to door services with English speaking, considerate & highly trained alpine drivers. We work extremely hard in the office & on the road to ensure you will receive a high quality & a real value for money service.
Our priority is to ensure your safety, even though our transfers are low cost. This is why we hand pick & carefully recruit our drivers, manage their hours responsibly & put them all on a professional alpine driving training course. Our whole team works as hard as possible to ensure the best quality service possible.
We comply to strict French and Swiss transport laws & are fully licensed & insured.
We operate a fleet of 13-seater & 8-seater Renault vehicles. Our brand new vehicles are fully equipped with snow tyres & chains, & furthermore we attach safety bars to both sides of each vehicle to further protect you on the mountainous roads. Our comfortable minibuses are all long wheel based giving extra luggage space for all your ski, snowboard & bike baggage needs. Our entire fleet have air conditioning for the summer months and have excellent heating in the winter months to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible whatever the weather 🙂
Selection: We hand pick & carefully recruit our drivers, manage their hours responsibly & we put them all on a professional alpine driving training course.
Manner, Service & Experience: They are all English speaking, friendly & knowledgeable. They will greet you with a smile, help you carry & load your luggage, drive you in a safe, considerate & timely manner to your destination, & give you local knowledge along the way. They know various routes to the airport & we keep in close contact with them (with vehicle trackers) if there is any traffic or road blockages & therefore know which alternate routes to take. They are well trained in how to drive in snowy conditions & in how to put on snow chains efficiently.
Qualifications & Adherence: In order to comply with the new strict Swiss laws, all our drivers have to have a clean police background check, have the necessary experience or driving qualifications needed. Furthermore, all of our drivers undergo a medical to meet strict French transport laws.
Efficient & Friendly: Our English and French speaking staff are here to help you. We work very hard to ensure that you receive the best customer service possible.
Contactable: We are contactable 24/7 & we try to answer every call that comes in. If our lines are busy (+33(0)6 72 99 19 48) please do feel free to call back later or send us a quick email. We endeavour to get back to every email ([email protected]) we receive (usually within 2 hours) so if you do not receive a reply then we may not have received your email. In this case, please do feel free to call us.
Tracking: We track all flight arrivals to check if your flight is on time or not and adjust our schedule as carefully and efficiently as possible. We track traffic conditions and we know where traffic bottle-necks occur and the times of day when the roads become disrupted, and we try to preempt issues by taking alternative routes or action. We track our vehicles to help keep our services as efficient and smooth as possible and to help take alternate routes if issues on the road occur (snow, accidents, traffic, local events etc).
Local Knowledge: We have a great deal of local knowledge having been based in Morzine for over 10 years & we have a very thorough database of accommodation & we know our local resorts very well.
Our reservation system automatically sends you a free SMS (at 15:00 the day before you depart resort) to inform you of the time that your driver will meet you for your departure. Now you can enjoy your time up the mountain on your last day knowing that everything is in order for your departure with us.
Although we aren’t the biggest operator the world, we don’t have our heads buried in the snow so to speak. We understand the environmental impact that our business has & try to do our bit to limit their effects.
Road: All our vehicles have brand new eco-designed engines. We try to run our schedule as efficiently as possible; avoiding ‘wasted’ trips; often waiting for long periods of time at the airport (between departures from resort & arrivals at the airport) rather than sending two separate vehicles down & we only take on services that we can actually operate.
Office: Our online reservation system negates the use of paper. Any paper that we do use, we recycle where possible along with other waste products. In addition we try avoid excessive use of electrical devices.
Sustainability: We are also proudly helping to support our friends at the Much Better Foundation who are helping to finance conservation projects in adventure destinations (such as in our beautiful French Alps). The Much Better Foundation is a grant giving body that aims to give vital financial support to carefully selected grass roots conservation & sustainable development projects that have the potential to make a big difference on tackling crucial issues in adventure tourism destinations.
