Melton College: Does Melton College offer airport transfers?

Does Melton College offer airport transfers?

For students on Homestay Extra, accompanied airport transfers on Sundays at certain times from Leeds or Manchester airports are included in the fees (see table bellow). The College can also arrange transfers for students, not on Homestay Extra, to and from airports for a fee. Please contact us for up-to-date prices.

Accompanied Transfer Service

The courses run from Sunday to Sunday. Students are greeted as they emerge from baggage collection and escorted to York. At the end of their course, we take the students back to the airport, help them with check-in and make sure they go through security in time to catch their plane!  Students travelling as ‘unaccompanied minors’ pay a £30 supplement, each way, and must arrive and depart within the times of the ‘included’ transfer service.

Students whose flights arrive or depart outside of the “Homestay Extra Transfer” window will be charged an additional fee of £75.  Leeds airport is about 1 hour from York. Manchester Airport is about 2 hours from York. We always plan to deliver students to the airport 2 hours before their departure. Students must not plan to arrive or leave their host family between 0100 and 0500.

Waiting times

Students using the College’s transfer service may be expected to wait for up to 4 hours at the airport from the published landing time of their flight plus the time to clear customs. Melton College arranges transfers on the understanding that students should arrive at the airport for check-in 120 minutes before their flight.
