TRAVEL
France Map

Our families make their own travel arrangements but you may find the information and links below helpful.

Our office is always happy to help you with travel advice and to liaise with the host family on directions.

The French family will meet your child from the nearest port, airport or rail station. Please check operators’ rules on unaccompanied child travel.

!

Please note that most charter flights (Easyjet, Ryanair, etc) will not carry unaccompanied children under the age of 14.
For children under 18 years, many airlines require a letter from the parent/guardian giving permission for the child to leave the country.
Please check restrictions with the airline before booking.

PASSPORTS
You can apply for a passport through a Post Office or through many High Street travel agents. You can also apply online at the Passport Service website: www.ukpa.gov.uk

HEALTH CARE
Your child should be in possession of the European Health Card before they travel. An application form is available from Post Offices.
