How to get to Meribel from the UK

Being the font of all Méribel-related knowledge, we are often asked about how to get here and how much it costs and so we decided to write a guide on the typical timings and prices for getting to Méribel for the 2017 / 2018 season. Of course, it will be largely ignored and people will continue to ask but if it helps one guest then we are happy…!

If you’ve got any other questions about getting to Meribel and it’s the only thing stopping you from booking then get in touch with us. We’ll take the hassle out and get back to you with a suggested travel itinerary as soon as we can.

Typical times and costs: The journey takes about 18 hours so make sure you bring a travel cushion. On the plus side, it is one of the cheaper ways to get there as return journeys start from £75 per person and there’s no need to arrange separate transfers or pay extra for skis and luggage. You’ll also travel overnight so won’t notice a lot of the journey, if you sleep.  You can book a coach to Meribel using Snow Express.

Car

As long as you don’t live too far north or west and you don’t have fidgety children then driving oneself to Méribel is a very good option.

As long as you don’t live too far north or west and you don’t have fidgety children then driving oneself to Méribel is a very good option. Yes, you have to pay tolls to use the roads but the roads in France are very good – and generally very empty meaning you can apply the accelerator with only a precautionary 100 EUR note and a box of Gitanes to see off any pesky Gendarmes!

Typical times and costs: Journey times from Calais should be between eight and nine hours and we estimate the cost per person to be £175 based on four sharing a car and including the cost of Eurotunnel, petrol and tolls. But given the cost of flights we question why you would go through all this instead of just flying in.

Links: You’ll need to get on the Eurotunnel.
