THE BENEFITS OF OUIBUS FOR YOUR COACH TO SKI HOLIDAY
Short breaks are becoming more and more popular, so that’s why we wanted to make sure that OUIBUS would take you straight to your ski resort, so you don’t waste any time and can ride those runs right away! That means there’s no need to find out about shuttle times between the railway station and the resort. Our buses will drop you right there.
- Regular, inexpensive bus trips from Paris, Lyon, London and many other places.
- If you think the journey might be a bit long, don’t worry: you can get online with the on-board WiFi connection. Plugs and USB sockets are also available so you don’t run out of battery during your journey (remember to bring your UK>FR plug adapter though)
- OUIBUS actually offers night trips so you won’t lose out on a single day of your holiday! We also have reclining seats to make sure you won’t have any problem getting some shut-eye!
Can I bring my skis?
Travelling by bus means that you can bring your ski equipment with you and stow it in the hold. Your allowance includes a pair of skis or a snowboard, and a pair of ski boots. This equipment will have to be loaded into the hold, and will only be accepted if it is stored in suitable protective covers and labelled with your full name and telephone number.
