We have made it easier for you to cancel

Because nobody can predict the future

Nobody ever wants to cancel their mountain holiday. But sometimes it's unavoidable. That's why we've created our market-leading FlexiPlus Cancellation Policy, all included in our standard prices. Travel insurance companies are now covering some COVID-19 scenarios but not all. You can now book with confidence knowing that we have your back should things change and you need to postpone or cancel your holiday.

These terms apply to any holiday starting 1st May 2021 and after. Complete financial peace of mind, for you and your whole family, even in the times of Covid-19.

I have amazing travel insurance and don't need these protections

Well, that is amazing travel insurance! No problems, we've planned for that too. The above FlexiPlus Cancellation Policy is included in our Standard prices. You can also book our non-refundable Saver prices which do not include the FlexiPlus Cancellation Policy. That is 10% cheaper but doesn't include any of the protections. Please see our page on pricing options for more details.

How to get Cover for personal / party member specific travel restrictions

Our FlexiPlus Cancellation Policy is designed to cover you when governments put any of these covid-19 related travel restrictions in place for everyone. It does not cover you if you, or a party member, cannot travel due to being a close contact or displaying covid-19 symptoms, either before your holiday or in resort. Travel insurance companies are now offering such products and please make sure your travel insurance will cover you for these situations.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the current status of Les Gets?

The whole of France is currently within "placé en état d’urgence sanitaire". You can find out more on the French Government website here (we are in area 74 - Haute Savoie) .

Are there special cleaning procedures in place in the company?

Yes. There is a six hour vacancy of the chalet during changeover so we can deep clean and disinfect the chalet. We also regularly disinfect the commonly touched items throughout your stay in our catered chalets such as door handles, light switches and stair banisters.

Do I need to bring my own hand sanitiser?

We have hand sanitisers in all our chalets and we regularly disinfect the communal areas and commonly touched surfaces in our catered chalets. We recommend bringing a small bottle with you though for when you are out of the chalet.

Can I wash my mask in the chalet?

Yes, all our properties have access to a washing machine.

Are there rules in place for the public or shared areas in the buildings?

Yes, masks are mandatory in all the shared/public areas of our buildings which may be shared with other accommodations such as the ski rooms, stair cases, hall ways and fitness rooms. Although it's not compulsory, we recommend wearing masks in the communal areas of the chalet such as the living area.

Are there government rules specifying a maximum amount of people allowed in the chalet or minimum space per person?

No, there are no such regulations in France. Our chalets are classed as private spaces. The French government does not have any restrictions in private residences.

Are masks compulsory in the village?

Masks are required when in any public indoor spaces such as restaurants, shops, bars & the tourist office.

Can I get contaminated by other guests in a shared chalet? 

Yes, there is a risk as we are not able to abide by social distancing in our shared chalets. If this is a worry for you then we recommend booking a chalet for exclusive use.

Can I get contaminated by staff in a chalet?

Yes, this is a possibility. Our staff will be wearing a mask while they are in the chalet and you can if you want also. If this is still a worry for you, we recommend to book self-catered accommodation. You can contact us directly with your dates and group size for the availability.

Can I get contaminated out and about in the resort?

Yes, this is possible. Most of the public places, such as restaurants and bars, are following the protocols and recommendations from the French health authorities though later on especially in bars social distancing can be less respected.

I'm worried about flying. What can I do instead?

Les Gets is only a 9 hr drive from Calais, and it's all motorway until the last 30 minutes. All our chalets have parking. Please see our Getting to Les Gets page for more details about driving to Les Gets.

How can I find out more about what you are doing as a company?

Please do not hesitate to get in touch by phone or email with any questions, we'd be glad to help.
