Flights and Travelling to Camp
Can I change my flight or no flight option once I have set it on my profile?
The flight option within your application will default to Camp Leaders arranging your flight. Once you have been accepted, you will have the option to choose a package with or without flights. As soon as you’re ready to be hired by a camp, this can’t be changed.
I don't know my travel plans yet, can I request my return flights when I’m at camp?
We need proof of your return to the UK for insurance purposes and to ease your process through immigration. If you’re really not sure, then our advice is to aim for NYC. New York has great travel links so is easily accessible no matter where you end up.
Why is there a flight surcharge fee on my application?
Flights to and from London to your summer camp alongside returns from camp or NYC are all free. If you have asked to fly from a different airport or at a peak time, then you may be charged an additional amount. If you’re still not sure about the fee, please contact the office as soon as possible, as you may still be charged if your flight has already been booked for you.
How much is my luggage allowance?
We recommend checking the airline’s website as allowance can vary.
How do I get my flight tickets?
Once your flights have been booked, you’ll receive an email confirming your airline, flight itinerary and booking reference. You can use this booking reference to check in online and print your boarding card.
How do I check in for my flight?
You can check in online 24 hours before you fly or check in at the desk at the airport. You’ll just need your passport.
I have a connecting flight, do I need to collect my baggage and then re-check it in?
Your bag should always be checked to your final destination airport, however always confirm with the airline upon check in.
Is there enough time between my connecting flights?
Yes, we wouldn't be able to book you a connecting flight if there wasn't enough time to get to the next flight. If you miss your connection due to a delay, simply speak to your airline representative who will book you on to the next possible flight.
What do I do if my flight is delayed/cancelled?
If your flight is delayed then the best thing to do is speak to the airline and call our emergency number, also we’d also recommend contacting your summer camp. Once you have notified us we will also contact them to keep camp updated.
Can I find out who else is on my flight?
We have a Facebook group for everyone who has been placed. Simply ask away on there.
Can I change my return flight?
You are able to change your return flight date free of charge, but not the airport.
How can I change my return flight?
Go to the ‘Travel and Flights’ section, in your account. Here you’ll be able to submit a request and our flights team will get back to you. If you’re requesting to change the airport, the team will come back to you with a quote on how much the change will cost, and we’ll go from there.
