The benefits of Self Drive

Why fly when you can drive?

Driving is by far the most flexible option, where you are in control of your own timetable, can take as much luggage as you need (including sport & leisure equipment at no extra charge), stop en route as and when you choose and maybe visit a little vineyard on the way through Burgundy. You can also stay in more than one resort and take day trips to areas of interest, while maximising your leisure time in the resort.

Because we have negotiated great prices with the ferry companies and Eurotunnel we are able to offer the best value for money possible.

For independent travellers we can offer accommodation-only bookings. Most of our resorts are close to the international airports of Geneva, Grenoble, Chambery, Lyon or Turin (see our airlines and car hire companies sections).

We can also arrange competitive car hire. 

Ferry travel with Peak Retreats

Peak Retreats can also book P&O ferries from Hull-Zeebrugge/Rotterdam if you live in the North of the country or the ferries from the south coast across to France. Choice of Dover-Calais with P&O and Portsmouth-Caen, Poole/Portsmouth-Cherbourg, Portsmouth-St-Malo, Plymouth-Roscoff with Brittany Ferries.

EXTRA CAR £140 RTN (reductions for ferries)

Please note that the supplements shown are calculated on the basis of our tour operator allocated space. Occasionally, space may not be available at these fares, in which case we may have to charge the operator's full brochure price. If this occurs, it will, of course, be made clear to you at the time of booking. The same operator must be used for the outward and return journey.

Miss the queues at the toll plazas and arrive on the slopes first.....

Sanef, the French motorway operator has now extended its Liber-t automatic toll payment service to UK motorists. To use the service all you need to do is register online and they will send you a small electronic transponder (or tag) that you attach to your windscreen just behind the rear-view mirror. As you approach the barriers, a device by the barrier will read your transponder (or tag), securely extract your unique reference and then automatically open the barrier without you having to stop.
