You are allowed two hours’ waiting time from the advised arrival time, free of charge. If you are delayed further, for whatever reason, the driver will wait for up to an additional 2 hours and you will be charged in accordance with the published tariff.

You can recognise our representatives by the Anglo-Continental sign they carry.

Luggage allowance – airlines

Please note that airlines apply different luggage restrictions (i.e. size, weight, contents and number of items). We advise you to check with the airline before you travel.

Luggage allowance – car and coach transfers

Your free allowance is one piece of luggage of a standard size and shape weighing not more than 23kg, plus one item of hand luggage of not more than 10kg.

If your luggage does not conform with the above, an additional charge may have to be made. it is important that you advise us in advance if there is excess baggage so we can make appropriate arrangements, otherwise you may find that the excess luggage cannot travel with you and there may additional charges.

Possible waiting times for coach transfers

It is our aim to get you to Bournemouth as soon as possible. Please take into account the following: flights may be delayed, late release of luggage, UK Border Control, Customs Control and heavy road traffic. Depending on the time you enter the arrival hall, you may have to wait more than one hour for the next coach departure.

Transfers on British public holidays

Transfers on British public holidays may have a surcharge; please contact us for a special price.


Notice of cancellation or change of a transfer must be received in writing by the school before 12.00 hours (British Time) on the Wednesday prior to the scheduled day of arrival or departure. If such notice is not received within the period stipulated, we incur obligations to the transport companies and therefore the full charge is due.

Liability and Insurance

We cannot accept responsibility for any delay in scheduled services, or if any service cannot be provided as specified, or for any loss, damage or injury to students or their property during travel. We advise you to take out personal insurance to cover yourself against these risks.


Payment for transfers must be made before the date of provision of the service. Any additional charges, such as delayed arrival, must be paid on the first day of school.

Fuel Surcharge

If a transportation company levies a surcharge because of an increase in the price of fuel, the additional cost will be charged to you.
