Frequently asked questions

1. From which Airport can a transfer be arranged?

Transfers can be arranged from Girona and Barcelona airports. Travelling time (when traffic is normal) from Barcelona is about 1 hour and from Girona about 30 minutes.

2. On what day do we arrive and leave?

Unless you form part of a group, you arrive on Saturday. In this way you are able to get to know Tossa and get to know your fellow language travellers before classes start on Monday. Departures take place on Saturdays as well. Your room will be available in the afternoon and on departure you have to vacate the room before 12.

3. How is the transfer organized?

A member of our Move your Class team will be there to meet you. That person will carry a 'Move your Class' sign so you can recognise him/her. You will also be given a mobile number to call that person if for some reason you cannot get to him/her. From the airport it goes straight to the hostel where you can meet up with your fellow language travellers. If students arrive at different times or have delays it may be that you will have to wait at the airport before you are picked up. If you have to wait, there will always be a 'Move your Class' team member to assist you.
