Plan Your Travel

Let us take the hassle out of booking your language activity holiday! As an ABTA and ATOL-bonded company and member of the School Travel Forum, Halsbury can book the following travel extras in addition to your language programme:

Flights

Flights are arranged via a variety of scheduled operators including Ryanair, EasyJet, British Airways and others. We can arrange flights from most cities and regional airports to your chosen location. Students normally arrive on the Sunday before the course starts and depart on the Saturday after it finishes. If you would like to book your own flights then we offer advice on the best airlines and airports to choose from.

Travel Insurance

All students travelling abroad are recommended to take out travel insurance before travelling.

Airport transfers

Some schools offer airport transfers as a free service and some schools make a charge for this service. An airport transfer is normally a private transfer and a representative of the school will meet you from your flight and take you directly to your accommodation. To book an airport transfer we must receive your flight details at least 7 days before the start of your course unless we have booked the flight for you.

We can organise as little or as much as you please...so whether you want help with just flights or whether you''d like us to arrange your entire itinerary, feel free to ask one of our fully-trained product team for a quote.

And remember an experienced member of our team is here to advise you on all of your available options before, during and after your language course.
