2021 TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS

Affects all courses

Domestic and international travel is starting to return to normal, but it is a new normal. Some of the usual travel options have not been restored. We looked for suitable Saturday flights to both Nantes and Tours but both of the “new” options require a check-in circa 04:30 which is RIDICULOUS, no?

For this reason we have returned to Poitiers. The city is well served by high speed trains from both Paris Montparnasse and Paris CDG Airport. On Sundays there is also a direct Ryanair flight from London Stansted (STN). Another bonus is that Poitiers is our closest city (just one hour away).

From Sunday September 12th to October 24th the pickup time will be 17:00 at Poitiers station, followed by a 17:30 pickup at Poitiers airport. Drop-offs will be at 13:00 (airport) and 13:15 (station) the following Sunday. This will allow you to enjoy lunch at the airport or rail station cafés before boarding your plane/train.

From Sunday 31st October to November 14th the pickup time will be 15:45 at Poitiers station, followed by a 16:15 pickup at Poitiers airport. Drop-offs will be at 12:45 (airport) and 13:00 (station) the following Sunday. This will allow you to enjoy lunch at the airport or rail station cafés before boarding your plane/train.
