Flights from London Heathrow to Zurich and return with British Airways.
The journey between Zurich airport and Kandersteg (approximately 2 ½ hours) is by train. On arrival at the station our luggage will be transferred to the hotel while we take a short stroll.
Land only package: This applies if you will be organising your own travel arrangements, and travelling to the hotel independently to the rest of the group. You will still be entitled to receive your tailor made Swiss Rail tickets. These tickets enable you to travel by train between the airport and Kandersteg. These also provide a 50% reduction on travel in between these areas. To obtain this ahead of your holiday then please email David Kay at [email protected] and we can organise the delivery of your tickets. Please be aware that these are not usually delivered to our offices until two weeks – ten days prior to the departure date. So you will be sent your pass after this time.
If you are joining and leaving the party in Switzerland it is assumed, unless you have advised us otherwise, that you will meet and leave the party at our hotel in Kandersteg. If this is not your intention, please let us know in writing, at least 5 weeks before departure.
Booking Your Own Travel Arrangements?
If you wish to organise your own flights from a non-UK or provincial airport or travel by rail or car to your holiday destination, 'land only' reductions are often available. Please contact us for details.
Before finalising any independent travel arrangements, please check with us first - especially if doing so 12 weeks or more before your intended date of travel. If you do intend to join your holiday locally please do tell us at least 14 weeks in advance.
If you are joining and leaving your holiday overseas we assume, unless you advise us otherwise, that you will join and leave the holiday at your hotel.
Although airport transfers are not included for those making their own independent travel arrangements, if you wish to join the group at the overseas airport, depending on your flight arrival time, you may be able to be included on the group's transfer. Please contact us at least 5 weeks before departure for more details.
Please note that your flight must arrive within 30 minutes of the group flight to be able to join the group transfer. We also need your flight number, arrival time and departure point so that the group leader is able to meet up with you.
Regional Flights (R2). We offer regional flight options on this holiday but due to the location and travelling time to our resort we operate just one transfer vehicle between the airport and hotel. This may mean that there is a wait at the overseas airport in one or both directions.
Luggage Allowance & Travel Documents
For all those booking a flight or rail inclusive holiday, details of your travel arrangements and baggage allowance will be confirmed in your travel documents, sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure.
