Free, Accompanied Travel from 17 UK Towns and Cities

SuperweeksIncluded with every Superweek is free, accompanied travel from any of our 17 guaranteed travel points shown below. This means you can get to any Superweek, at any centre, easily. A Monitor will meet you at the station and travel with you all the way to your holiday.

“The Monitors that accompanied the travelling children were really lovely – chatty, approachable and sensible.” – Parent, 2015

How does ATE’s accompanied travel system work?

We use a mixture of private coaches, trains and a few National Express coaches.. We keep journey times as short as possible, and, of course, the children are well looked after the whole way.

We cannot know in advance where children will be travelling from, so we offer a basic network of guaranteed travel points as shown. Then, as the travel pattern becomes clearer, we offer nearer travel points where we can. For estimated travel times please see the table below.

For bookings made less than 4 weeks before a Superweek not all travel points can be guaranteed. Please do ring ATE to find out what is available.

“I was particularly impressed with the quality of the travel arrangements and level of engagement of the monitors with the young people.” -Parent, 2014

Final travel details will be sent to you approximately a week before the Superweek.

Airport & Eurostar Transfers

We can meet children at London Heathrow, Birmingham International Airport or the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras International for a small extra cost.

Please call the office or email us at info@ate.org.uk for further information about the best arrival and departure times for Airport transfers.
