baggage claim area into the airport turn left and continue down the hall. You will see our desk on the right hand side opposite the UBS bank and
cashpoints. The client will be met by a Skiidy Gonzales driver or airport representative and shown to their vehicle(s) for departure at the earliest
possible time. For arrivals in Terminal 2 your driver will be waiting by the exit door from the baggage hall.

not limited to weather conditions, traffic expectations, road works and safety considerations.
2. The client will receive their definitive pick-up time confirmation the day before their departure via an SMS message.

be liable for any costs incurred from external services (such as flights or trains) being missed. A waiver form will be carried by the driver for
the passenger in such cases and this must be signed before the transfer is carried out.

not been received by 17.00 the day before travel.

minutes before departing.
6. If the client cannot be contacted in this time, they will be considered a no show and the vehicle will depart. No refund or compensation will be

b. SHARED TRANSFERS
i. Shared transfers are available during the Winter and Summer seasons in the resorts of the Portes Du Soleil and Grand Massif.
ii. The client will travel in a vehicle or vehicles (vehicle change may take place) that may be shared with other parties staying in the same or neighbouring resorts. Groups maybe split between multiple vehicles which may result in staggered timings on arrival or departure.
iii. Shared services are door to door services.
iv. Arrival at the airport: Clients should make their way to our airport desk in TERMINAL 1. As you exit the baggage claim area into Terminal 1, turn
left and continue down the hall. You will see our desk on the right hand side opposite the UBS bank and cashpoints. If you arrive into Terminal 2
then you will need to make your way into Terminal 1 and locate our desk as above. The client will be met by a Skiidy Gonzales driver or airport
representative and shown to their vehicle(s) for departure at the earliest possible time.
v. Waiting times at the airport:
1. The client agrees, for flights landing between 09.00 and 21.00, a waiting time of up to 60 minutes from arriving at the Skiidy Gonzales airport desk may be necessary to join a shared transfer during the winter season. This is extended to 120 minutes during the summer season when there is less demand.
2. On average it takes a minimum of 30 minutes from a flight landing for passengers to clear security and baggage reclaim and arrive at our desk. This 30 minute margin is the basis for our scheduling. If a flight lands early or for any other reason a client reaches our desk more quickly than this, the waiting time of 60 minutes (120 mins in the summer) will not start any earlier than 30 minutes after the scheduled landing time of the flight.
3. For flights arriving before 09.00am and after 21.00, waiting times may be longer and no maximum waiting time is guaranteed. The waiting
time will be governed by other clients’ flight times.
4. Clients arriving on flights after 21.00 and travelling on the last shared transfer of the day should expect to wait for the last person on the
shared service to arrive. The last shared transfer of the day waits for delayed passengers. If the client is uncomfortable waiting for the last
arrivals we strongly recommend booking a private transfer to ensure prompt departure from the airport.
5. If the client arrives at the airport desk early and there is space on an earlier departure they will be able to change free of charge.

cancellation, passport control queue, lost baggage etc.) they will be considered as delayed and delayed terms (section 11) will apply.

1. The travel voucher states a provisional pick up time. The client will receive their definitive pick-up time confirmation the day before their
departure via an SMS message.
2. For flights taking off between 09.00 and 21.00 the pick up time may be up to 5 hours before the flight depending on other shared
passengers’ flight times. On peak weekends, or days when heavy traffic is forecasted by the French or Swiss authorities, we reserve the right
to extend the pick up time to more than 5 hours before flight to reflect the expected conditions, ensure the safety of our clients and allow
adequate time for travel.
3. For flights taking off before 09.00 pick ups may be extended to match other passengers. Please note that it is feasible, when passenger
numbers are low, that for morning flights taking off before 09.00 the client may be grouped with passengers on flights taking off as early as
06.00 (first departure from Geneva). This is the worst case, quite rare and will not be known until close to the time. But it is necessary to
make shared services during the quiet hours of the day economically viable and to allow the client a low per seat price. If you are not
prepared to adapt to this we strongly recommend reserving a private transfer.
4. In all cases pick up times will align with other passengers' flight times and may be, at the company’s discretion, extended to cope with
elements including, but not limited to, weather conditions, traffic expectations, road works, government direction and safety considerations
