Frequently Asked Questions
Questions from Holidaymakers
Why have I received an offer(s) for a property(-ies) I did not enquire about?
When you make an enquiry on the “Please let me know the availability and price” form, the enquiry is sent directly to the Property Owner. We also send the enquiry to other properties similar chalets selected by size, location, catering basis and quality. If the property that initially was of interest is unavailable in this way we seek to offer you similar alternatives to consider that might also suit you.
How do I book and pay?
When you are ready to book, just let us know. We will then email you the contact details of the Property Owner and email your contact details to them too along with the basic information about your booking. The owner will get in touch and take you through their booking and payment process. This will typically involve completing a booking form, receiving Terms and Conditions and paying for your booking with deposit and balance instalments. The process varies from owner to owner so you should check carefully what they are and what is included or excluded in the price.
What are the booking conditions?
Booking Conditions vary from one owner to the next. When you make a booking you will receive all the details from the property owner along with the small print.
Where is your office located?
We are fortunate to have a lovely office in the centre of Chamonix, behind the Benetton shop on the high street at 16 Impasses des Rhododendrons. The kettle is always on so feel free to drop in should you need anything. The landline number is +33 (0) 4 50 78 01 95.
How do I buy lift passes?
Some owners will arrange your lift passes although they are usually a travel extra and not included in the price. You can also pre-book them with us and we will deliver them to you on your arrival day free of charge. Simply go to www.chamonixskipasses and book them securely online.
How do I book airport transfers?
Please check the booking details carefully to establish whether transfers are included in the price of holiday. If you need to book transfers you can do so with us at www.chamonixskitransfers.com securely online.
Do you provide cots, high chairs and vehicle child seats?
Please let us know what you need when you are preparing to book and we will pass on your requests to the property owner. Normally the property owner can supply all that you need, but in the rare occasion where this is not possible, let us know and we will see what we can do to help.
We advise that you to bring your own and install child or bumper seats in vehicles yourself.
What is your refund / cancellation policy?
Each property owner will have their own specific terms and conditions relating to refunds and cancellations. Please check the holiday terms and conditions. As your contract will be direct with the owner you must be satisfied with the conditions before going ahead.
How does Chamonix Ski Chalets work?
We are an agency and property owners list properties on the website. When enquiries are received we contact the property owner and check the price and availability. We pass the holiday details on to you and give advice when asked. If you want to book a property we give your details to the property owner and you pay direct. You pay us nothing.
Do I pay a commission to Chamonix Ski Chalets?
No, you do not pay us anything for holiday bookings. For the sake of transparency, you should know that we may receive commission for introducing you to property operators and other service providers.
How to search for a property?
The easiest and fastest way is to use the search form near the top of every page by simply searching by “Sleeps (up to)” but you can also narrow your search too or look for a specific property using the dropdown and/or other criteria to fliter with.
How to make an enquiry?
At the bottom of every property listing is an enquiry form. Your contact details are mandatory and you will help us help you by giving as much details about your requirements as possible in the “Enquiry” field.
Information such as your preferred chalet type, number of single beds, doubles/twins, children and their ages and location preferences as important to us as to you. The more we know about what works for you the more quickly we will send you proposals for suitable chalets.
Other than for passing on your details to Property Owners when you book, your details will go nowhere and if you make an enquiry we never pass your details to third parties.
A few times a year we get in touch with you at most. We believe that giving a good service is key and that email marketing is something we have to do occasionally but that your inbox is yours, not ours.
Where is the property located?
Most of the advertised properties have a map powered by Google. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of these maps although for the most part the property locations are correct.
Chamonix is a large valley so with many different types of location including town, village and country, alpine and forest etc. We advise you to think carefully about where you would like to be in relation to the skiing areas and the many villages of the Chamonix valley before booking or simply ask our advice.
How do I give feedback?
Please give us feedback anytime on our service or the property you have booked by emailing us on the info@ email address.
How do I get help once I am in Chamonix?
Call us during office hours on the office landline +33 (0) 4 50 78 01 95 or Adam's mobile number on +44 7775 814814.
