Getting to Megeve from Geneva Airport

You can obviously hire a car from Geneva Airport to get to Megeve but think how much you will use it when you get there because the centre is car-free and parking can be very expensive. Therefore it's more convenient to use a ski resort transfer service. This saves you the worry and hassle of driving to the resort in an unknown car on mountain roads in wintry conditions (putting on snowchains in the dark in a blizzard is a rotten way to start a holiday) and usually works out cheaper too.
