GETTING HERE – COVID STATUS
Assuming roughly similar conditions to the present as a ‘worse-case scenario’, in terms of travel, at the moment we can see less flyers than usual since driving means less risk of contamination situations of course. That is not to say that flying won’t be possible, airlines will be desperate to find safe solutions to getting their industry back to work. Restrictions could, however, impact our transfers and we will monitor the situation as best practices become more evident. Our Travel information can be found below and we will update Airline information as the picture becomes clearer.

The most popular route is basically Calais to Reims (two and a half hours) then to Lyon (three and a half hours) then finally to Val Cenis (two and a half hours). The MGS route gives all the detail necessary. Obviously there are options on how to cross the channel, and invariably offers available.
