Independent Travelers & International Students

Home > Greece > Visa & Travel Information > Independent Travelers & International Students

Students who are not traveling on the group flight are considered "independent travelers," and should arrive in Thessaloniki no later than September 15, 2015.

Required Travel Form

Flight Information Form 
To ensure the safety of all participants, both students traveling on the group flight and those traveling independently must provide with the details of their itinerary, including any and all connecting flights. Students will receive an email prompting them to provide these flight details prior to departure. 

International Students & Flight Credits

International students who choose to fly to Thessaloniki separately from the Group Flight will receive a flight credit on their bill equal to the cost of one group flight airline ticket.

Travel To & From Thessaloniki

Independent travelers are responsible for their own transportation from the airport to the student residence located at the address below:

Metropolitan Hotel
Vas. Olgas 65 & Fleming

546 42 Thessaloniki


Queen Olga Hotel  

Vas. Olgas 44 & Kallidopoulou

546 41 Thessaloniki



On the last day of the Program, students on the Group Flight home will be shuttled from the hotel to the airport. If an independent traveler's flight is departing on or around the same time as the Group Flight, he or she may utilize these buses to get to the airport. Otherwise, independent travelers will be responsible for their own transportation to the airport.
