A new scheduled transfer service between big airports and the Aosta Valley in Italy has this season launched - and it's affordable! NEW

The cost of getting to a resort, before having even clipped in to your skis, can be insanely high.

Transfers are notoriously expensive and added to that spent on flights, accommodation, ski gear and mountain-priced hot chocolates many are put off booking a holiday.

Prices to the Aosta Valley start from €15 one way.

As well as skiing in Italy being generally better value, for it you get top views with a good quality of snow, scenery and, of course, food!

The Aosta Valley resorts offer so much variety with upmarket Courmayeur, international skiing in La Thuile and quieter pistes in Pila.

And now there's a bus that doesn't seek to extort money from visitors, just bring them to the slopes...

Bus company Sauda is the provider linking Turin, Milan and Geneva airports with Aosta and Courmayeur.

For other resorts this service will stop in towns down in the valley, linking to existing bus services to Cervinia, Champoluc, Gressoney and La Thuile.
