Getting to your tutor's home
Arrivals and Departure
Bucksmore Homelingua weeks run from Sunday to Saturday* and courses can begin on any Sunday throughout the year. Students should aim to arrive at their tutor's home on Sunday afternoon.
Many tutors are able to meet students at the local train or bus station. Direct taxi transfers can be arranged for an additional fee. The approximate cost is £120 per transfer, depending on the location of your tutor's home and the arrival/departure airport. We will advise you of the nearest airport to your tutor's home when booking a course.
If adult students would like to make their own to the tutor's home by using public transport, we recommend having a look at the following websites:

Transfers for Junior Students
Bucksmore Homelingua does not allow junior students to travel independently to their tutor's home using public transportation. Under-18s must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We work with trusted transfer companies and are able to arrange arrival and departure transfers for junior students for an additional fee. Transfers are included in the course fees for our Bucksmore Summer Focus programme when students arrive and depart on designated Tuesdays.
When children are travelling alone you may wish to book an unaccompanied minors (UM) service. This means our representative will hand the student over to a member of airport staff who will stay with the child until they board the plane. Please check with the airline and also inform the Bucksmore Homelingua team if your child is travelling with this service in order for us to plan accordingly for the arrival/departure transfer.
