We request that you keep your Transfer Operator informed by telephone of any delays in collecting luggage, or of lost luggage, which may cause a delay to your booked transfer. A customer failing to notify of a delay, may miss their transfer as it will be assumed that they did not travel. It is the responsibility of the airline, not Ski Transfer Finder, to deliver any lost luggage to the customer.

The EU directive 2003/20/EC states that children ought to use an appropriate child seat until they reach 12 years of age or until they reach a height of 135 cm. Transfer Operators can provide appropriate child seats, as long as they are specified at the time of booking. For children up to 19KG we suggest you request a 'Baby Seat' and for children over 19KG select a 'Child Seat'.
Ski Transfer Finder is not able to guarantee requested child seats in all vehicles of Transfer Operator's.
On certain transfer types (Coach) where vehicles over 8 passenger seats are used, it may not be possible for Transfer Operator to provide child seats. Please be aware that where this is the case, it is not a legal requirement to use such a seat.
All children and infants count towards the occupancy of the vehicle, regardless of age and thus should be included in the total number of passengers at the time of booking.
We are not able to guarantee the possibility to transport manual, folding wheelchairs in all vehicles of Transfer Operator's. Therefore we ask passengers to advise us on such special request at the time of booking. This is vital to ensure that the correct vehicle is available to meet your specific requirements.
