Coming by plane to Megève
Whatever your origin, you have the possibility of coming by plane by landing at one of the four airports which surround the station. Geneva international airport is the closest, located only 90 km away, it is also the one with the most international routes. You can also consult Chambéry airport located 95 km from Megève, Grenoble airport 160 km and Lyon airport 172 km.
We recommend that you take the bus, a taxi or rent a car upon your arrival at Geneva International Airport. Indeed, if you choose the train, it will drop you off at Sallanches and you will need to find a new means of transport to get to Megève.
Coming by car to Megève
Thanks to the snow removal carried out every day, the village remains an easily accessible resort that can be used by car. If you go through Switzerland, think about the motorway sticker which is mandatory. It is possible to buy one at certain customs. Cars hired at Geneva airport naturally have this sticker. You arrive by the French motorway, remember to take a VINCI or LECTONIC badge, a very good solution to access the lanes dedicated to the tolls and to save on the costs of the motorway. You go through Italy and plan to take the Mont-Blanc tunnel, make sure it is open. You will find all the useful information on their Mont-Blanc website (price, traffic, timetables).
