Frequently Asked Questions

We'd like to think that we've covered every eventuality within our FAQs but there may be something you need to know that we've overlooked, in which case please contact us as soon as possible.
 
Please make sure you have read the other pages within the "Further Information" section (links above) as certain questions may have already been answered within those specific areas.
 
Where is your Welcome Desk located in Geneva Airport?
You will find our Welcome Desk in the Arrivals Hall at Geneva Airport opposite UBS Bank. Our Representatives are there to greet you and introduce you to your driver.
 
I want to change my pick-up/drop-off point. Can I tell the driver
No. All changes to bookings MUST be made on-line or by telephoning the ChamExpress Office. Drivers are specifically instructed not to take messages or details of changes to bookings.

For insurance reasons your ChamExpress driver is only permitted to drop you off, or pick you up, at the address that is both shown on your ticket and printed on their passenger list. Otherwise the driver will be considered to be driving 'off-route' and will be uninsured. Therefore, passengers cannot request the driver to drop them off, or pick them up, at any destination other than that listed on their ticket (subject to accessibility).

 

My Flight to Geneva has been delayed. What do I do?
Should your flight be delayed to such an extent that you will miss your pre-booked transfer departure then you must send a text message to the Arrival Emergency Telephone Number given on your travel ticket as soon as you become aware of the delay. Clearly state your: Booking Reference, Name, Number of people in your party, Flight Number and your new flight arrival time. ChamExpress will then endeavour to place you on the next transfer after your new estimated time of arrival, subject to space still being available, at no additional charge. This is allocated by ChamExpress on a 'first-come, first-served' basis and a wait may be necessary. Please be aware that if you miss the last transfer departure of the day then the next available transfer may not by until the following morning. In the event that no later transfer is available, or you do not wish to wait, then you will be required to make your own arrangements at your own expense. The original transfer is non-transferable and non-refundable.

 
My Flight to Geneva has been cancelled. What do I do?
In the event of your flight being cancelled your pre-booked transfer is non-transferable and non-refundable and you should ensure that you have travel insurance for such an event. Alternatively, you should seek re-imbursement from your airline. Your transfer ticket may be used as proof of purchase. Any subsequent transfer that you wish us to arrange will be charged for.
 
I have missed my flight/connecting flight into Geneva. What do I do?
Should you miss your flight, or connecting flight, and this will mean that you miss your pre-booked transfer departure then you must send a text message to the Arrival Emergency Telephone Number given on your travel ticket as soon as you become aware that you have missed your flight. Clearly state your: Booking Reference, Name, Number of people in your party and Flight Number. Your transfer ticket is non-transferable and non-refundable and you will be required to re-book if you wish to travel on a later transfer. Please do not claim that your flight has been delayed or cancelled. We monitor the arrivals of all flights into Geneva Airport.
 
My flight to Geneva has been diverted. What do I do?
ChamExpress only operate out of Geneva Airport. Should your flight be diverted to another airport then ChamExpress will be unable to transfer you. In this event your transfer ticket is non-transferable and non-refundable. You should seek reimbursement from your airline or travel insurance for any additional costs incurred. Any subsequent transfer that you wish us to arrange, once you have arrived at Geneva Airport, will be charged for.
 
I have missed my transfer departure from Geneva Airport. What do I do?
Should you miss your transfer due to insufficient time being allowed to meet the driver, or for failing to follow the instructions on how to meet the driver, or for any other reason not listed above, your transfer ticket is non-transferable and non-refundable. If you wish to continue to travel with ChamExpress then you will be required to re-book. Alternatively, you may make your own transfer arrangements at your own expense.
 
When do you collect me for my transfer from the Resort?
You are allocated a 30 minute 'pick-up window' which starts immediately BEFORE the transfer departure time that you selected when making your booking. You MUST be ready and waiting at the START of the 'pick-up window'. For example, for the 07:30 transfer, you must be ready and waiting at 07:00. During the 30 minute 'pick-up window' your transfer vehicle will also be collecting passengers on the same transfer from other accommodations and therefore, may arrive to collect you anytime within this 30 minute period. Failure to be waiting at the start of the pick-up window may result in your missing your transfer as our vehicle may be unable to wait. In this event your transfer ticket is non-transferable and non-refundable and you will be required to re-book if you wish to travel on a later transfer with ChamExpress. Alternatively, you may make your own transfer arrangements at your own expense.
 
Where do I wait for my transfer from the Resort?
You should wait in a visable and accessible position outside the pick-up point listed on your transfer ticket. On seeing the ChamExpress vehicle you should indicate to the driver that you are travelling with ChamExpress. Failure to follow these instructions could result in the driver being unable to locate you and so leave without you. In this event your transfer ticket is non-transferable and non-refundable and you will be required to re-book if you wish to travel on a later transfer with ChamExpress. Alternatively, you may make your own transfer arrangements at your own expense.
 
Can you tell me the exact time you will collect me?
No. You are given a 30 minute 'pick-up window'. ChamExpress is a shared transfer service, not a private taxi service. The drivers route and number of pick-up points vary with each transfer departure. This is why you must be ready and waiting at the start of the pick-up window as a courtesy to those passengers being collected after you, and to ensure that our transfer vehicle can depart the Resort on time.
 
Can you wait whilst I or my friends finish their packing / breakfast / drinks / shopping etc?
No. ChamExpress is a shared transfer service, not a private taxi service. The driver will have other passengers that also have to be collected within the 30 minute pick-up window so our driver is instructed to leave without you if you are not ready and waiting when our vehicle arrives to collect you. In this event your transfer ticket is non-transferable and non-refundable and you will be required to re-book if you wish to travel on a later transfer with ChamExpress. Alternatively, you may make your own transfer arrangements at your own expense.
 
The 30 minute pick-up window has expired. What do I do?
If you are still waiting for our vehicle to arrive to collect you after the 30 minute pick-up window has expired then first re-check your transfer ticket to satisfy yourself that you have booked the correct date and time. Only then, please telephone the Departure Emergency Telephone Number given on your travel ticket. Our office will then be able to update you on any delay to your transfer vehicle.
 
Can your driver take me to a Geneva hotel?
No. ChamExpress is a shared transfer service, not a private taxi service. The Swiss authorities only allow transfers to operate to/from Geneva Airport. You can easily connect to the city centre via train or bus from the adjacent airport station.
 
Can I cancel / get a refund?
In common with all low-fare carriers we do not offer refunds when customers:
  • choose not to travel,
  • can no longer travel, or
  • book incorrectly.
This is because we need our transfer vehicles to be as full as possible to keep our prices as low as they are and we may not be able to resell the seats. This is applicable regardless of when the seats are cancelled.
 
I am not going to use my seat. Can I get a credit or transfer it?
No. Once booked, seats that are not cancelled and subsequently not used are non-transferable and non-refundable.
 
How do I change the number of seats booked / Transfer Time or Date / Pick-up or Drop-off point?
Important: You will have to change the bookings yourself on our website. This can be done by logging into your account that you created when booking. Simply log-in usuing your email address and password. Or you can telephone our office on: +33 450 54 73 72. Emailing us about the changes you wish to make will NOT change the bookings. Our drivers will not take messages regarding changes for you, neither can the drivers make the change for you.
 
You cannot "split” a booking. So if you have a booking for two passengers, you cannot make a change to your booking for one of the passengers only. If you change bookings to fewer passengers than on the original booking, you will forfeit the other seats. For example if you change from two passengers to one passenger, you will forfeit one seat.

I have left some personal items / luggage on your vehicle. What do I do?
It is your responsibility to keep valuables safe whilst travelling on the transfer vehicle and also to ensure that your own luggage is off-loaded at your destination. Any property left on the vehicle will be returned to the ChamExpress Office at the end of each day. Left property will be held for a maximum of 30 days before being destroyed or given to charity.

Can I bring a pet / animal?
