The notes below are tailored to clients coming from the UK. They include information on how best to meet up with our group airport transfers (that are included in the price of your holiday). If you wish to take other flights, or use other methods of transport to make part or all of your journey independently to the start, or from the finish, then please see our general page on Travel to the Hotel Terminus, which gets you to the train station in Ax. From there we are able to arrange you a lift to Alpage.
We would like to emphasize that for this mountain biking holiday, taking the train from the UK is a fun, cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to air travel; please see our Green Travel pages. It is possible to take trains direct to and from Ax from where we can arrange you a lift to your accommodation.

Transfers between Toulouse Airport to the Hotel Terminus in Ax les Thermes (1hr 45mins) are offered to tie in with the flights listed below. People arriving on the earlier / departing on the later of the flights will be expected to wait at the airport for the later flights to arrive.
