We appreciate that travelling from airports to ski resorts is not the most enjoyable experience, so we aim to offer our clients a more comfortable, more relaxing, and therefore more enjoyable transfer experience. The added luxury and comfort of the Mercedes V Class simply offers a more pleasant journey. A prestige airport transfer in comfort, particularly when it can often take more than three hours travelling to some ski resorts due  to the adverse winter weather conditions and/or traffic congestion during peak winter season.

Also providing bespoke executive transport services which includes private hire and premium luxury transport service for those travelling to and from unique locations.

Our Environmental Challenge

We genuinely recognise the effect on the environment that motorised transfers has. However people still need to travel from A to B.  Until the automotive manufacturers can provide a cleaner and more environmentally friendly means of propulsion for commercial vehicles, we are limited to the type and engine design currently available for commercial passenger carrying vehicles.

We aim to be one of the first transfer companies to adopt the new electrical hybrid powered commercial passenger vehicle in the near future, however until that becomes available we have a limited choice. So we try our best to reduce emissions where possible to minimise the affect on the precious alpine environment.

With this in mind we aim to operate our transfer business with respect to environment, minimising our impact and reducing our carbon footprint where possible. We regularly service our vehicles not only to maintain safety, but also to optimise engine efficiency and minimise pollution.

We achieve a degree of carbon reduction by initially choosing the Mercedes V Class model with the Bluetech engine technology which reduces output of harmful emissions and a model that provides the best power to weight ration and fuel consumption statistics.

By continuously monitoring fuel consumption and driving in a responsible, safe and consistent manner, we genuinely attempt to reduce fuel consumption and therefore reduce output of harmful emissions.

By choosing premium brand low rolling resistant tyres, although more expensive, does achieve a reduction in fuel consumption and tyre wear, as does regular checks to ensure the tyres are maintained at the recommended air pressure to ensure maximum efficiency, under inflated tyres increase fuel consumption.

We drive our vehicles in a manner that minimises emission output using the Mercedes “Eco mode” to maximise fuel efficiency combined with the “Stop/Start” engine feature when the vehicle is at a standstill, such as at traffic lights or when the vehicle is stationary in traffic.

We avoid unnecessary heavy braking ensuring we use engine braking to maximise efficiency when possible to slow the vehicle without compromising safety in order to reduce brake wear (heavy braking results in more emission of toxic brake dust particles).

At all times avoiding erratic acceleration, unnecessary heavy braking and generally ensuring we drive in a consistent, safe and economical manner.
