Plaese can anyone help me!
We are arriving in Geneva on Fris 3rd April evening. We need to somehow travel to Val Cenis, but I am having a lot of trouble trying to work the journey out on a budget.
Anyone have any good ideas!
Nearly, almost, but not quite!

Depending on your arrival hour in Geneva, you can take a train from the airport, change at Geneva and Chambery and arrive at Modane which I think is the nearest station, about 25km to the resort. Cost is 45 Euros single. Travel time to Modane is about 4 and a half hours.

Thanks bandit.
Quite a confusing website, as not very good at French! I think it is going to cost more than expected.
Don't know if it would be better to hire a car. Do you know what the journey would be like?

Sorry, not a resort that I have visited. Car Hire out of Geneva has gone up a bit in price this year IMHO, seems abot £200 per week now. Also, depending on your time of arrival you may not be able to get public transport, and may have to overnight in a hotel.

Another option is to use Altibus http://www.altibus.com/index.aspx

Val Cenis resort think they are served by this company, though it may not run direct from Geneva.

I used altibus for Chambery--> Bourg and they were pretty good.
