Airport transfers are included with some courses. An airport transfer, not included with a course, may be booked as an additional item. Transfers booked in this way are subject to availability. For all transfers complete flight information must be sent to Avanti Language Institute at least 5 working days prior to the flight date. If we do not receive complete flight information (date / time / airline / flight number) Avanti Language Institute will not be able to provide the transfer service even if this is included in the course fee.
Where an included transfer cannot be provided due to insufficient information being received there will be no reduction in the course fee.
Medical Insurance and Health
Before arrival all persons participating in Avanti Language Institute courses should arrange insurance against all expenses that might arise due to accident, illness or loss of luggage, personal effects and money.
Avanti Language Institute can provide Medical Insurance to non-EU students between ages of 16 and 65 for up to 1 year. Alternatively, students may arrange their own Medical Insurance in their own country before their departure.
Students travelling from EU countries should bring the Social Security Form E1_11 with them. This only entitles students to free emergency hospital care and appointments with certain doctors. Please note that this will not cover dental visits.
Students must notify Avanti Language Institute of any medical condition that might have an effect on their stay in Ireland. Avanti Language Institute reserves the right to send students home, if in the opinion of Avanti Language Institute management, a student’s medical condition makes their continuing on a course untenable and unrealistic.
Providers of activities such as golf, horse-riding, etc. may require that minors have an insurance waiver signed by a parent, guardian or group leader before the start of the courses.
Students are liable for any damage caused by them and payment for such damage must be made immediately.
All students will be informed of the Avanti Language Institute code of conduct and behaviour at the commencement of all courses. The breaking of Avanti Language Institute’s rules of conduct will result in disciplinary action up to and including immediate expulsion for serious offences. In the event of a student being expelled from Avanti Language Institute, there will be no refund of any type under any circumstances.
Any disputes relating to services provided by Avanti Language Institute must be brought to the attention of Avanti Language Institute management while the complainant is in Ireland. Avanti Language Institute will not entertain complaints about services provided where these complaints were not reported to Avanti Language Institute at the time. Any legal disputes will be heard in the courts of the Republic of Ireland. Courses and bookings are subject to the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980.
