How to go from the airport to Club Pollentia and back


Pre-arranged bus pick-upfor students and lecturers

We have arranged a free bus service between airport and hotel to help school students and lecturers to make their way to the school venue. The bus will operate at three different times during Sunday 1 October (arrival day) picking up people from the airport and taking them to the hotel.

  • First pick-up is at 12:30 for school attendees arriving on flights between 7:55 and 11:35 (morning)
  • Second pick up is at 16:00 for school attendees arriving on flights between 12:05 and 15:10 (early afternoon)
  • Third pick-up is at 20:00 for school students arriving on flights between 15:50 and 19:05 (later afternoon/evening)

For people arriving late (after 19:05) we have special arrangements and you will be contacted by email with further information.

All pick-ups, for the THREE shuttles during the day as well as for the late arrivals will be at the same place. MEETING POINT on ARRIVALS Lounge (inside the Terminal), just in front of the Airport Information Desk, where one person from DIPLOMATIC will be waiting with a sign showing the round GODAE OceanView International School logo. A contact phone number has been provided with the information email in case of emergencies.

A person from “Diplomatic Services” will wait with a sign showing the round GOV School logo at the AIRPORT MEETING POINT 15 minutes before the bus departs to collect attendees and show them the way to the bus.

If you arrive just after a bus has left you will need to wait until the next bus. Attendees will also have the option to use public transport or other means of transfer. Please see the paragraph below for further information.



From the airport take the Bus Line A32 to Alcúdia, the stop is outside the Airport Arrivals’ Hall. Single fare ticket price is 8.00 EUR. Tickets can be purchased from the bus driver (bills larger than 20 EUR are not accepted). Line 32 bus schedule and route can be found here (there are 12 daily connections between 7:25 and 22:40, travel time is 1 hour 40 minutes). From Alcúdia to Pollentia Club Resort take Bus L352, every 15 minutes, see this web page for details. Google Maps full tour.


Rental car (free parking is available at the hotel)

Rental cars are relatively inexpensive in Mallorca compared with mainland Europe, but should be booked in advance. Directions: From the airport, onto the motorway to Palma. Take the 2nd exit to the Ma-20/Via de Cintura to Andratx and continue around 40 km till exit towards Inca Pto. Alcudia. After the end of the motorway, drive always straight to Alcudia – Pto. Alcudia around 22 km until a roundabout where to Alcudia; from Alcudia, to Pto. Polensa. You’ll find the hotel after about 3 km on the left side in front of the sea.



Taxis can be found also outside the Arrivals Hall. The ride will take about 45 minutes and the taxi will cost 80-90 Euros (plus supplements for luggage, night time and Sunday rides) – we encourage taxi sharing or taking the bus.


Accommodation and flights

(Latest update - 15 June 2017)

Travel: All lecturers and selected students will need to arrange their own flights to Palma airport and transfers.

Travel sponsoring: For some students the cost of travel will be paid for by the school (those eligible have been informed). Coverage of costs for travel will either be arranged by

  • the school by buying/providing the travel ticket to the student before the school
  • the student by being able to pay for the ticket upfront and to receive a reimbursement after the school

The school will get in touch with students and lecturers to clarify the details. All sponsored travellers are expected to travel at economy level, otherwise reimbursement might not be possible.

Information about the reimbursement method will be explained to students & lecturers and will include completing a claim form. For your claim to be processed you will have to provide a school certificate stating the successful completion of the school together with the receipts of all your expenses (flight ticket, boarding pass, transits) .

Accommodation: All participants will have to book accommodation at the "Club Pollentia Resort" on the north coast of Mallorca, where the school will take place through the "DIPLOMATIC SERVICES Travel Agency". Please note that there are no other hotels in the area in walking distance to the conference venue.

Students must confirm participation in the school by completing the questionnaire that was sent with the invitation letter by 15 May 2017. All confirmed students will receive (by email) a hotel booking form (suitable only for them) following their confirmation of participation. If you have confirmed your participation but not received a hotel booking form by 20 May, please contact the school organisers.



The maximum stay for all students and lecturers (sponsored and non-sponsored) at the "Club Pollentia Resort" under the special room rate arrangement (see "Costs" below) is 12 NIGHTS, i.e. from the 1-13 October 2017. No further nights can be added under the school accommodation arrangement.

Students have to share rooms (TWIN/2 bed sharing) with another student of the school. As a student it will not be possible to book a single room. However, on the room booking form you may indicate the student you wish to share the room with.

ALL lecturers & students MUST make their hotel reservations through the DIPLOMATIC SERVICES Travel Agency to get the special attendee's rate on an ALL INCLUSIVE basis (DO NOT book directly with the hotel). Non-compliance will automatically exclude students from participating in the school.
