How to avoid extortionate holiday travel costs!

La Source has just come up with a way of avoiding all the extortionate holiday flight, transfer and train costs! We will link you up with 3 or 4 other families and put you in touch with a mini bus company. If you are 15 people, the total cost of travel will be less than £100 per person return each. It is sustainable, communal and fun! Hopefully, you will have some good new mates by the time you get to Chamonix!
