If the client decides to make the onward journey by other means Peak Transfer cannot accept any charges or costs incurred.
Shared Transfers – Airport Onwards
Clients booked on shared transfers agree to wait up to 1 hour after they have landed at the airport and have made contact with the driver. If the customers have to wait more than one hour then steps will be taken to find the customer alternative transport to get to resort. The 1 hour wait is valid from 0800 to 2000. All bookings made outside these times are subject to an increased wait of up to 90 minutes.

Vallorcine transfers – to and from
If a booking to Vallorcine is taken but due to bad weather the road to Vallorcine is closed, the customer will be dropped at Argentiere Railway station to make their way to Vallorcine from there or expected to get to Argentiere railway station from Vallorcine for their outward transfer.
Due to the train from Argentiere being currently closed, if the road to Vallorcine is closed the client will be taken to the nearest hotel as getting to Vallorcine is not possible by road.
Once the road has reopened it is up to the customer to make their way to their accommodation in Vallorcine.
If the road is closed to Vallorcine when we are due to collect guests its up to the client to get to Argentiere to make their transfer – again because it’s impossible to reach by car.
