Travel to Spain
The program begins and ends in Madrid, the capital of Spain. You are picked up at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport on the first day of the program, and then embark on a 9-10 day orientation tour of some of Spain's most important historical cities. You can choose to be transported back to Barajas on the last day of the program.
Once you are accepted you are given instructions as to when you need to be in Madrid. Please do not book your flight until you receive this letter! There is also a group flight option, departing from New York's JFK Airport the night before the program begins. If you choose to take the group flight you will not receive the flight reimbursement. If you make your own travel plans you can expect to be reimbursed up to $900 prior to departure and will be given clear time parameters as to when to arrive in Madrid.
If you plan to do some traveling in other parts of Spain or Europe prior to the first day of the program, make sure that your travel plans allow you to meet the group in Madrid. Otherwise you are responsible for getting yourself to the first destination on the orientation tour.
