Skiidy Gonzales may also be referred to as ‘The Company’ or ‘PSB Projects SARL’. ‘Skiidy Gonzales’ is a trading name owned and operated by PSB Projects SARL of 114A Taille Du Grand Mas, 74110 Morzine, France. The term ‘Client’ refers to any individual making a reservation. In cases where this is a group of 2 or more travellers, said individual will automatically be allocated the status of ‘party leader’ and will be deemed responsible for all persons travelling under the reservation. They will be the primary contact for all information and matters concerning the reservation.
  • By making a booking with Skiidy Gonzales online or by telephone the client accepts these terms and conditions.

  • Any amendments made to a booking within 14 days may incur a 25 euro administration charge at the company’s discretion.
BOOKING CONFIRMATION
  • Subject to availability, the reservation is deemed confirmed, when the client receives a confirmation email/travel voucher from Skiidy Gonzales. This will be issued within 24 hours of a booking being made.
  • Should this confirmation not be received, the client must contact Skiidy Gonzales to raise the matter as soon as possible.
  • In extremely rare cases where a booking is made and paid for and there is no availability, the transfer will be cancelled by the company and a full-refund made within 24 hours of the booking being placed. The client will be notified of this cancellation and refund by email.
  • The Travel Voucher must be printed and carried by the client on the day of travel. This document acts as a ticket and must be presented to the Skiidy Gonzales driver or airport representative on request. This voucher is printable in the ‘My Skiidy’ area of this website.
The client is responsible for:
  • providing accurate contact information, including email and mobile telephone number. Any failure in services resulting from Skiidy Gonzales having incorrect contact information will be deemed to be the fault of the client and no compensation will be available.
  • providing the correct flight information (including local flight times). Any loss of service or extra charges incurred by the client as a result of any erroneous information being supplied will not be the responsibility of or compensated by Skiidy Gonzales. In cases where a client reserving an arrival provides Skiidy Gonzales with the take-off time NOT the arrival time of their flight Skiidy Gonzales reserve the right to re-schedule an alternative pick-up (if available) and re-charge the client for this. If there is no vehicle available for the rescheduled journey then no liability is accepted by Skiidy Gonzales and no refund will be offered to the client.
  • providing the correct accommodation information concerning drop off and pick-up points. It is also the client’s responsibility to carry directions and contact details for the accommodation in order to direct the driver if required. If the accommodation cannot be found after 20 minutes of driving around the resort then Skiidy Gonzales reserves the right to drop the clients at the Tourist Office in the resort concerned or charge the client accordingly for additional vehicle and driver hire.
SHARED TRANSFERS (Portes du Soleil, Flaine)
  • When a shared transfer is booked, the client and party will travel in a vehicle or vehicles that may be shared with other clients.
  • Shared transfers are available throughout the Winter and Summer operating periods only.
  • Arrival at the airport: The client will be met by a Skiidy Gonzales driver or airport representative and provided with departure details. The client agrees that, under normal circumstances, a maximum waiting time of one hour (one and a half hours for Flaine, and one and a half hours for PDS in Summer months) may be necessary to join a shared transfer. With flights before 08.00am and after 21.00, waiting times may be longer. Clients arriving on late flights and travelling on the last shared transfer of the day, should expect to wait for the last person on the shared service to arrive. In this situation Skiidy Gonzales will attempt to find alternative travel solutions with partner companies on a “like for like” shared basis. This only applies to shared transfers, if passengers are uncomfortable waiting for the last arrivals we recommend booking a private transfer to ensure prompt departure from the airport.
  • Departure from resort: The client will receive their pick-up time the day before their departure via an SMS message to the mobile telephone number provided during the booking process. It is the responsibility of the client to contact Skiidy Gonzales on +33(0)450373685 to obtain their pick-up time confirmation if this SMS has not been received by 17.00 the day before travel. Pick-up times are a minimum of three hours before flight departure and will be between 3.5 and 5.5 hours before a flight departure as standard (in Flaine the standard departure times can be between 3.5 and 5.5 hours before a flight departure).  Please note that these times may be set further in advance of flight time at the Company’s discretion due to weather and road conditions and variations in the schedule. If the client is not at the specified pick-up point at the stated time the Skiidy Gonzales vehicle and driver will wait a maximum of 5 minutes before departing.
  • Clients booking journeys to Avoriaz will be dropped off and picked up from the Reception Centre on the edge of the resort (Avoriaz is a vehicle-free resort). Pick-up times supplied by Skiidy Gonzales refer to pick-up from this Reception Centre. It is the responsibility of the client to be at the Reception Centre for this time.
  • When a client requests a specific pick-up time from resort to airport, Skiidy Gonzales will accommodate when possible, but will not be liable for any costs incurred from external services (such as flights or trains) being missed. A waiver form will be carried by the driver for the passenger in such a case and this must be signed before the transfer will be carried out.

FLIGHT DELAYS, FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS AND RESCHEDULED FLIGHTS
  • Where flights are delayed, clients will be rescheduled into the next available seats but this may result in a wait on arrival or the sharing of a vehicle with other passengers. Should the client not wish to wait for the next available seats then they are free to arrange alternative transport as they see fit but no compensation will be payable by Skiidy Gonzales. 
  • In some cases, the next available seats may mean travel the following day or a transfer by private bus which will require a further fee.
  • If a driver has to wait more than 60 minutes for a client, then a waiting charge of EUROS 25 per hour will be charged to the client to cover additional costs incurred by Skiidy Gonzales. If the client informs Skiidy Gonzales of the changes to flight arrangements before the vehicle and driver depart to the airport then no waiting charges will apply. Skiidy Gonzales will always assist in rearranging onward travel.
  • If no contact is made with the Skiidy Gonzales office within 60 minutes of *actual* landing time, the client will be classed as a ‘no show’ and the driver will be at liberty to leave the airport without them and the client obliged to re-book and pay for a new transfer.
  • In cases where baggage has been lost, the client must contact the Skiidy Gonzales office as soon as possible on +33(0)450373685. If baggage issues cause delays that severely affect the departure of other clients or general operations, the delayed passenger(s) may be rescheduled onto the next available seats at the company’s discretion.
  • Where flights are cancelled and as a consequence, the client cancels a transfer any less than 14 days before travel, no refund will be given. Full documentation will be provided on request to aid any insurance claim.
