Guest travel review: travel to Les Gets

Patchy Bear and Ski Bear here, guest reviewing dad and his sister’s recent ski holiday to Les Gets in France

 Sis did the organisation and chose Geneva airport because of its proximity to quite a few ski resorts, making it ideal for a short ski break as you can ski on the day of arrival and day of departure

Geneva Airport was efficient but not the most aesthetically pleasing building from the outside. Last year, dad and sis hired a car with some friends and driving back to the rental car return is a small adventure. There’s only one unmanned petrol station to refuel and it only takes cards. Parking spaces in the airport are very tight

 The inside is more pleasant and run with Swiss efficiency. The self check in kiosks and self baggage labelling machines take a little bit of getting used to. Make sure you wait for your rectangular boarding pass to come out before leaving. It does takes a long time to come out after everything seems to be finished and quite a few people left without their boarding pass

The security line was well managed with staff making sure all queues were used efficiently. Short delays at immigration lines but nothing major

The shops are generally high end and the restaurants are quite pricey but this is Switzerland, I suppose. Dad and sis shared a single bowl of pasta and a orange juice for about £18

  
  

 The boarding at the gate was a little chaotic. No attempt was made to control the queue and there was bad queue cutting. Staff need to be stronger and manage this better

Swiss airlines were good. Informative at all times, efficient and a real warmth to the service. For this short flight, they got a snack and a drink as well as some Swiss chocolate

  
There are a lot of companies doing ski transfers from the airport. Dad and sis used Skiidy Gonzales, who were excellent. Their drivers wear big sombreros, making them easy to spot. They organise and group passengers well, meaning minimal waiting times. For the return journey, there was good communication and punctual pickup

  1. Loving the teddy bear photos! My daughter loves travelling with here teddy, so much so that I’ve just launched a teddy bear passport for the iPhone on the app store, that I created her. It is fully customisable with unique details for the teddy’s name, place of birth, date of birth and photo, all in a professional looking passport with 16 stamp-able pages that automatically detect the country, city and date when a child taps the screen. I thought this might be really useful for your traveling teddy as well? 🙂
