Getting to Chamonix
Getting to Chamonix has never been easier. With the opening of the A39 from Dijon to Bourg en Bresse, driving time can be as little as 8 hours from Calais to Chamonix if you take motorways and limit your stops.If you don't want to blitz the drive in 1 day then take your time and take an overnight stop. There are very cheap hotel chains such as Formule 1 where you can get a room for as little as £15 per night.
And with no fewer than 4 budget airlines flying from the UK to geneva, Chamonix is now even more accesible and long weekends are now financially viable.
