Morzine is very easy to access by either air or road. If driving then we are roughly 8 hours from Calais. If flying the easiest airport to fly to is Geneva which is just 1hr 15 minutes from most airports in the UK.

One of the great attractions for visiting Morzine is the short transfer time from the airport. It can be as quick as 1 hour and therefore easy to justify a short break or just a weekend in the French Alps. The map below is to give you an idea of where Morzine is situated in France - please don't use it as a route planner..!

Below you will find more detailed information on how to get to Morzine if you're flying or driving.

Baggage Weight Guidelines

Several Alps-bound airlines have changed their baggage rules this winter. Our table shows the limits for carry-on and checked baggage on the main scheduled airlines and charter flights.

Flying within Europe problems can arise. A pair of boots weighs about 3kg, a pair of skis 4kg and bindings a further 1.75kg. A suitcase alone can weigh 2-5kg. With all this equipment you are almost at the limit of what you can check in on Ryanair. Even on airlines which allow checked-in baggage up to 20kg you are pushing it. Remember that airlines charge from £4 per kilo for excess baggage.

Packing tips

Consider taking ski boots as hand luggage. Buy a boot bag and stuff it with other heavy items, such as holiday reading. Ski bags have room for more than one pair of skis. Most airlines do not notice, or care, if it contains more equipment than you can take free.

Consider the final price for your journey. Even if the headline fare seems cheap, if you have to pay £15 to take your skis each way the total cost may not be such a good deal.

British Airways 55x40x20cm. 6kg Max Europe. 23kg.
Free. Skis and poles or board and boots equals one piece.
EasyJet 55x40x20cm. No Weight Limit 20kg Snowsport equipment weighing up to 10kg free.
FlyBe 45x35x20cm. 5kg Max 20kg £15 one way
RyanAir 50x35x23cm. 10kg Max 15kg £15 one way
Swiss 55x40x20cm. 10kg Max 20kg Free

Please note that the above table could change and you should check with the airline for final confirmation.
