Do we need to pay online in advance (how many days in advanc

We need 4 bus tickets from Chamonix Mont Blanc to Geneva airport early Jun by Chamexpress or Mountaindrop (or any other?)

Do we need to pay online in advance (how many days in advance?) or can we book & pay cash when we reach Chamonix 2 or 3 days before the day of 7.15am early morning Airport transfer

You are better off booking as far in advance as you can to ensure you get the right timed transfer.

Chamexpress you pay when you make your reservation.

Not sure about Mountain Drop Offs as never used them.

I would suggest contacting the companies direct to ask this question as they all have their own system. My only advise would be to avoid anyone who wants you to pay on arrival, as good as it may seem.

Yes - always in advance.

Also - it's not clear from your message whether your flight is at 7.15 am, or if you leave Chamonix at 7.15 am. If your flight is at 7.15 am, you'll need to leave Chamonix by about 4.30 in the morning and I would look into arranging this as soon as possible.

We used both Chamexpress and Mountain Drop Off. Chamexpress must be paid in advance but Mountain Drop Off allowed us to pay the driver.

Both were professional , prompt and courteous. We could not fault either. For what it's worth Chamexpress was cheaper by €7.

^^yes, you can pay the driver - but you still have to book in advance, and give them a card number.

I paid in advance E120 for 4 seats.

Chamexpress was perfect!

On time & he even loaded & unloaded ALL our heavy bags!

Mountain dropoff also came to our resort for other guests at the same time
