Car hire

Best and cheapest companies used:

car holiday autos  are the best I’ve also used www.holidayautos.co.uk

car hire 4 less, http://www.carhire4less.co.uk/


Easycar are also cheap.

Waver insurance for car hire best to buy from insurance for car hire www.insurance4carhire.com – never had to use it yet so not tested the system – but you pay the same price for a year that you would for a week – worth checking it out if you travel a bit.

Youth Hostel in the centre of Chamonix

Thinking of just having a night in chamonix and not bothered about sharing with others – There is a Gite – Youth Hostel in the centre of Chamonix – prices are very cheap.  Shared dorms with bunk beds.  If you just want to ski Chamonix on your own or with a couple of friends this might be the place http://www.chamoniard.com – Le Chamoniard.

In les Carroz, out of the main village, about 100m below the Molliet ski lift,  the food is wonderful at the Haute Combe refuge and if you want to stay the  accommodation is pretty special too.
