WHERE IS THE MEETING POINT?
Generally, the meeting point is located in the city centre, near convenient public transport (bus, metro, tram, etc) or taxi (Uber, Bolt, FreeNow, etc). In Poland, we suggest using this website for local city transport: https://jakdojade.pl/onboarding
We will include all the important information in an info-pack (4 weeks before the programme starts). We can not send this information earlier as external factors or unforeseen circumstances can occur, and we want to ensure that we give the most up-to-date information to everyone.
The departure might be early in the morning, between 7:00 AM – 11:00 AM. We will communicate the exact departure time with the infopack. It’s very important to be at the meeting point 10-15 minutes before the requested time. Our bus will leave on time and unfortunately, if you are late, the only way that you can join us on a programme is to get there at your own cost. Many of our venues are very isolated, and so joining us will be very difficult and costly.
WHEN DO I NEED TO ARRIVE?
Angloville advises International Participants to arrive 1 day before the programme starts. However, we don’t cover these additional expenses (such as shuttle from the airport, hotel room, etc).
To arrive at the first start city, we recommend: www.skyscanner.com to look for some good flight deals. Budget airlines within Europe (Wizz air and Ryanair) do have some great deals for the upcoming months, with fares starting from 30 GBP!
If you visit several cities in the host country, please check your itinerary is realistic. For moving between programmes and start cities, there are budget buses within Europe (www.flixbus.com), trip & itinerary scheduler (https://www.rome2rio.com/) and trains (https://www.thetrainline.com/, https://www.intercity.pl/en/.
WHEN TO LEAVE FROM THE HOST COUNTRY?
We have to exercise utmost caution when predicting the return time of the Angloville bus to the departure city. Unforeseen circumstances, such as delays due to traffic, group issues, or other factors, can occur during the journey. Generally, we aim to have the bus back in the city centre by 18:00, but it’s important to be aware that the drop-off point for intercity or international connections may not be conveniently located near the Central train station, bus station, or airport.
Based on our past experiences, catching a train, bus, or carpool for an intercity connection on the same day has posed no issues.
However, we recommend practising prudence when scheduling a flight, as it may be more unpredictable (distance to the airport, check-in procedures, security checks, etc.): as a general recommendation, we advise our international participants to consider booking their flights no earlier than 23:00, if feasible, or to opt for a departure on the following day. This will allow them to have sufficient time and rest before their flight.
Please keep in mind that the given time is a forecast, and we cannot guarantee it. Our staff will do their best to arrive on time, or even earlier if possible.
