Geneva Airport Transfers

Powder White Ltd are proud to announce the launch of a new Airport Transfer service providing shared transfers from Geneva Airport in Switzerland to the popular ski resorts of Courchevel and Meribel in France. The new transfer service continues to use the Powder White shuttle bus but now offers shared transfers to mixed groups travelling to and from the airport and resorts.

The Powder White Shared Transfer service is open to any travellers wanting to get from Geneva Airport to Courchevel & Meribel and back costing only €65 pp one way with a discount for return journeys.

The service provides pre-bookable seats on the Powder White bus with a maximum of 8 seats per trip.

In addition, child seats for different ages are available on request ensuring all members of the family get to their destination safely and on time.

Currently the transfer service is available on select days starting on Sunday, Monday, Thursday & Friday each week although additional days can be serviced via Powder White transport partners.

New Ski Holiday Website for Mobiles

Powder White Releases Mobile Web Site to help mobile users find ski holiday accommodation in the Alps

Mobile Ski HolidaysThere is no doubt that mobile Internet usage is on the rise and recent surveys such as the ‘How technology is changing world travel’ by MyDestination.com suggest that as much as 2/3 of those surveyed said they are likely to explore, shop & book travel via their mobile. Furthermore, Google projects that 8% of mobile users will book travel from their smartphone.  Even Powder White’s own data suggests that over 10% of visitors to their website did so from a mobile device which represents a significant number of overall visitors.

With this thought in mind, Powder White has now released a ski holiday website designed specifically for mobile phones. Powder White’s SEO guru from a London SEO Company added “We wanted to deliver a useful experience to the end user, hence we created the mobile site to meet the needs of mobile users. However, as there are a multitude of devices now accessing the Internet, we also tweaked the main Powder White website in order to deliver a rich experience for tablet users also”

The Powder White mobile website was designed with simplicity in mind prioritising core values such as information, usability and speed at the top of the agenda in order to deliver a useful experience for mobile visitors. The mobile website features a brief introduction to the Powder White product line and allows visitors to quickly & easily find ski holiday accommodation in the Alps. When smartphone users visit the powderwhite website, they are automatically redirected to the mobile version of the website but the visitor can also browse back to the main website if they wish.

Australians Ski EuropeA recent audit found that nearly a 1/4 of skiers that took a skiing holiday with Powder White in the last 12 months were Australian demonstrating the attractiveness of skiing in the Alpes for our friends down under.
