N.B. Important note about Barcelona Airport
Please be aware when booking flights to Barcelona. A lot of the low cost airlines fly to Girona (Barcelona) or Reus (Barcelona) – although labelled ‘Barcelona’ they are airports both of which are approximately 100km from Barcelona.
To catch the Novatel Bus from Barcelona Airport up to Soldeu (www.andorrabybus.com) – you need to book a flight to Barcelona International Airport (Code BCN) – Barcelona International Airport El Prat de Llobregat – is it’s official name.
Although our Courses are not inclusive of travel, we would obviously like to help as much as possible.
Andorra itself has no airport; but the usual “no frills” airlines fly into surrounding airports. EASYJET fly into Toulouse and Barcelona, RYANAIR fly into Barcelona and Girona (Gerona). Check carefully for the airline WINTER Schedule.
Car Hire is an option; but only really worth while if there are 2 or 3 of you tavelling together. It’s a good idea to book Car Hire before you leave the UK. It will be cheaper than booking at the airport and you won’t have to wait in a long queue on arrival. BUT remember you could end up driving through snow and ice, so book a winter pack of chains etc. Holiday Autos, Europcar and Budget are worth a look.
