The word on the street

Our party of 8 used Mountain Rescue for private transfers from Grenoble Airport to the 3 Valleys this ski season. Our driver was very experienced and the vehicle very well maintained. Everything ran to schedule and we will certainly use again.

Excellent transfers to and from Les Arcs. Our flight was delayed on the way out and we kept in touch with our driver, who was waiting for us in arrivals.We had to reschedule our return for a detour on the way home and again, no issue.Would recommend without reservation.

Professional and very knowledgeable team which is exactly what you need getting to and from the airport especially with a lot of snow and in half term traffic to contend with! Would highly recommend these guys and we will always use them every year! Thanks to Bob and Steve for great service to and from Tignes Val Claret and hope to see you next year!

Excellent service and transfer. Both drivers were very personable, informative and professional. The vehicles are of a very high quality and comfortable. Having used many other transfer companies I would rate Mountain Rescue Transfers as the best.

Superb! Drove up to Val d'isre from Geneva in continuous snow with chains for the last 20km. No dramas just a steady safe transfer with a knowledgeable and confident driver. Timings were perfect and would have no hesitation to recommend or use again. Thanks.

Brilliant value, brilliant service, brilliant driver Sophie. Sophie, thanks again from all of the Irish guys with you last week including baby Kiranna for looking after us so well. You are a real credit and asset to your company. You got us up the valley to Champagny in terrible conditions on time and still in good humour. Much appreciated. When we return next year we will be using your company again and asking for you specifically.Simon keep her and keep up the good work. The van we were collected in was brand new, in perfect condition and very comfortable.Thanks again guys. Hope you have a great season.

Absolutely fantastic service - worth every penny.We were collected promptly from Geneva by Lewis late Thursday evening and quickly taken to Val d'Isere. It was snowing heavily but got up the mountain safely. Lewis was helpful and efficient and full of interesting information.Our return journey was the following Monday and booked for 8am for a 2pm flight. It had snowed all weekend and there were avalanches on the road out of Val so Roz finally arrived at 10.30am having been queueing to get up the road from 7am. We were kept informed all the time as to what was happening and Simon advised us to change our flight which we duly did thank goodness as we arrived at Geneva at about 2.30pm. Roz was really excellent - helpful, efficient, safe and interesting. The vans were warm and comfortable and clean and we had water on offer.We would definitely use Mountain Rescue again and have no hesitation in recommending them to everyone.

Absolutely brilliant service. We had guests who were struck by a horrendous tragedy whilst on holiday. Simon could not have been more helpful, bringing their transfer forward a day (and onto one of the busiest days of the season as well), as well as a change of destination. Drivers Roz and Atis were brilliant- Roz accompanied me to hospital with the guests and went a long long way above and beyond the call of duty when it came to translation and logistics involved with the situation. She gave no thought to how she felt, just about getting the job done and in the most sensitive fashion imaginable. I cannot thank her enough. What an amazing service you guys offer and so incredibly helpful, especially when the chips are down. THANK YOU

Fully reccomend using Mountain Rescue. They were great from start to finish. Stopped anytime we needed it and were able to skip the traffic by using local roads. Price was very competitive. We were made aware well in advance who our driver was, what time we were to be picked up and his number. Would definitely use them again. Had Robert and Coll driving us, big thanks to both of them.

Excellent transfer. Received a text in advance about timings, meeting point and driver's name. Ben was our driver on both transfers. Very comfortable journey all round. Water was also provided. This is our third transfer with Mountain Rescue and would definitely use again - especially if Ben was driving!! Thanks to Simon and his team.

After a hard day's traveling through Airports with my 6 year old daughter , I was so happy when coming out of customs and a smiley well dressed driver called Bob was waiting with a sign with my name on it. Not only was he a great driver, he was also like a encyclopaedia of Alpine life.very informative. Our driver on the way back from Tignes was Emily, also a lovey smiling experienced driver with great driving skills, (which clearly on alpine roads is quite handy). I'm a seasoned veteran of Alpine escapes and have had many a transfer, Mountain Rescue is hands down the best experience I've ever had. Great job guys, keep up the awesome work.
