If your child travels as an Unaccompanied Minor (UM), one of our staff members will meet your child at the flight gate to escort them to the group. From Outward Bound, you'll need the name of a representative who will collect and return your child to the gate. As we staff our courses often later than you'll need this info, we'll provide a temporary name and details until we are able to confirm the correct person. Once we have that, you'll need to call the airline to update the contact person.
Families are responsible for making arrangements with the airline and any additional fees. This usually requires calling the airline to book this directly. If your child flies as an UM, be aware that some airlines place restrictions on what flights are eligible. Please notify your course advisor when flying as a UM.
