Compagnie des Alpes (CDA) has just signed an agreement with Eurostar to relaunch the direct rail service from London-Saint Pancras to the Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps. CDA will finance this service, marketed under the name Travelski Express, for the 2021-2022 ski season.
This door-to-door transportation offer will be made available by Travelski, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CDA, which will distribute it as a package deal including transportation, shuttle service, lodging and ski passes.
Travelski Express will operate on weekends during the 2021-2022 ski season. Departing from London-Saint Pancras on Fridays, it will serve Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice stations non-stop. The return journey will be offered on Saturdays. Marketing in the UK will begin in September 2021. The "Ski in France" experience will begin from the heart of London!
With this new offer, CDA goes on reinforcing international business via its Travelski brand. This approach is consistent with its role as a historical and long-term partner of the sites it operates on behalf of its licensors and, more broadly, in the service of the French Alps ecosystem.
Faced with an unprecedented health crisis that led to a complete closure of its activities throughout the last winter season, CDA is strongly involved with its partners to promote a swift and robust recovery of the mountain economy.
