Chamexpress is unaffected by new Swiss restrictions on Airport Transfer Companies based in France that provide transfers from Geneva Airport
From 01st January 2014 chaos is set to ensue at Geneva Airport as a new Swiss law comes into force banning foreign transfer companies that operate only 8 seat vehicles from Geneva Airport. This new law requires those transfer companies operating 8-seat minibuses under a French 'Interior' transport licence to register each driver with the Swiss Government, pay 90 CHF per driver and provide 2 years evidence of their professional driving experience as well as provide a certificate from the French Department of Transport that the company has not been suspended from carrying out its activity. As most of these companies employ temporary seasonal drivers on a 'working holiday' it is unlikely that they will have 2 years previous professional driving experience. This certificate does not exist in France so it is not currently possible to fulfil the Swiss requirements.
Fortunately, SARL Chamexpress hold an International Passenger Transport Operators Licence and also an International Regular Service Authorisation issued by both the French and Swiss Governments. As we operate mainly 13 and 34 seat vehicles these also fall outside the scope of the new law as they are already covered under existing treaties between Switzerland and the EU member states.
New Additions to the Chamexpress Vehicle Fleet
We are delighted to announce the continued expansion of our vehicle fleet:
Over the next 12 months SARL Chamexpress.com will be making a 700,000 Euro investment in new minibuses and coaches. For this winter, we’ve purchased a number of brand new Renault Master minibuses complete with full passenger climate control and webasto central heating for your comfort. These new luxury minibuses comply with the latest tough Euro 5 emissions regulations so we’re also continuing to reduce our carbon footprint as well!
The first new vehicles will go into service on our popular Geneva to Chamonix route from the beginning of December with additional minibuses and coaches being rolled out throughout 2013 across our existing and new route networks.
All seats now 28 Euros HT.
From 02nd May the seat price for our Geneva to Chamonix route will increase to 28 Euros HT.
This is the first price adjustment since we started providing transfers in 2003 and is directly as a result of the 50% increase in the diesel prices since 2003 and increased staffing costs following successive raises of the minimum wage.
We are committed to providing you with the most reliable and best value airport transfer service. Increasing our prices ensures that the high standard of service and dependability we have delivered so successfully for you in the past remains for the future.
We are proud to be Chamonix's largest Airport Transfer Provider and we thank you for your continued custom and support!
Increases in the price of diesel fuel as a result of the current situation in the Middle East
Due to the surge in the price of oil, as result of the current situation in the Middle East, we have had to introduce a small fuel surcharge. We have kept this to the minimum that we can and will still continue to subsidize any diesel price rises. The fuel surcharge of 40 cents per seat will apply to all new bookings made from midnight on Friday 25th February. Thank you for your understanding.

Geneva Airport Ligne-Regulaire Approved!
We are delighted to anounce that the French & Swiss Governments have approved our Application to operate an International Ligne Regulaire - Authorisation: 2010/F/CH/003
We are now just one of only 3 companies that are genuinely Government approved to operate this route with more than 8 seat vehicles.
This means that we can now operate larger vehicles (should we choose to do so) on a regular timetabled basis between Geneva Airport and the resorts of the Chamonix Valley.

Beware of Imitations: Another One Bites The Dust
Earlier today, we were alerted to a wannabee operator who was trying to mirror our product and service offering through advertising a 'shuttle service'. On further investigation it was discovered that Morzine Lets LLP had copied direct phrases from our websites and also our complete Terms and Conditions.
All our website content is copyright protected by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and SARL Chamexpress.com will vigorously defend our brand and reputation, which is solidly built on reliability and integrity. Needless to say, the offending content was swiftly removed.
This means that only when booking your airport transfer with our brands Chamexpress.com or Morzexpress.com can you be assured of experiencing our trusted and proven high standard of service and integrity.
Don't ruin the start of your holiday. Remember - Anything Else is a Risk!
Summer Management Results
SARL Chamexpress.com has continued to deliver exceptional commercial performance this summer with total passenger revenue up 75%. This was in spite of the challenges presented by staffing issues towards the end of the season.
This is in stark contrast to our competitors who in most cases have either completely withdrawn or significantly reduced their transfer services offered from Geneva Airport.
This performance demonstates the continued quality of the Chamexpress service which is built around our policy of reliability and integrity, whilst offering low fixed-price fares on the Geneva to Chamonix route.
Forward bookings are in line with the previous year and underlying margins and operating costs per seat remain consistent with expectations. The Company continues to expect to reach its forecasted pre-tax profit for 2010.
I have been impressed with the continued enthusiasm and support of our management and retained staff and would like to thank them for their efforts over the past four months.

Rescue Mission from Chamonix to London
Airport transfer operator Chamexpress.com normally provides airport transfers between Chamonix, Morzine and Geneva Airport.
Since the Volcano crisis began, they have been chartering coaches to come out from England on a rescue mission to bring back holidaymakers from Chamonix to London-Victoria in the UK.
Owner, Andrew Martin said 'It is now a priority to get people back to the UK as people have to get back to families, work and school exams. Many are running short of money, which is why we took the decision to provide this service on a 'not-for-profit' basis'.
A number of coaches have already left for England on Sunday. Two more coaches will leave Chamonix on Wednesday afternoon (21st). A limited number of seats are still available at 120 Euros, including the ferry.
