College Guardians will arrange airport transport for your child at the beginning and end of each term, to and from school.
If required we will also arrange transport to and from host families during school breaks.
We regularly visit the transport companies we have contracts with to ensure standards are being met. All the drivers we use are DBS checked and will provide a “meet and greet” service at the airport. When your child is travelling as an unaccompanied minor our drivers, or a College Guardians representative, will be fully briefed and will complete the necessary documentation required by each airline.
Railcards are available for discounted travel rates for 16-25 year olds. These include:
- Get 50% off most tickets

For further details regarding the services that each airline offers to young passengers, please contact your chosen airline directly.
Please be aware that most airlines have strict weight limits for both checked bags and hand luggage. If you are aware that your child will be carrying excess baggage please advise College Guardians in advance. Any excess baggage charges will be billed to parents.
Unaccompanied Minors / Young Passengers
Please be aware that many airlines have strict rules with regards to children travelling alone. We strongly advise that you contact the airline and ensure that the appropriate booking is made. College Guardians can make travel bookings for unaccompanied minors or young passengers at an additional cost.
