Book with Confidence Guarantee

Between now and the end of 2021, any language course booked with Alpadia that is affected by coronavirus by either government-imposed travel restrictions, extension of school closure or symptoms of COVID-19 can be deferred at no extra cost – including summer surcharges or seasonal price differences – to any date in the next 18 months. If your departure is postponed due to Coronavirus-related reasons – such as government-imposed travel restrictions, flight cancellations that cannot be rebooked to your chosen destination, or because symptoms of COVID-19 occur – Alpadia will refund the application and accommodation fee. So, you have the maximum flexibility to enjoy the great experience of language travel when you want.


COVID-19 Cancellation Policy

• School closure imposed by the government
• Students are unable to travel due to government-imposed restrictions
• Students develop symptoms of COVID-19 and are unable to travel/study on-site
