Vancouver and Victoria's Friendly Airport Student
Where can I change my money?
place is at the Currency Exchange Counter in the International Arrivals
can I smoke?
place where smoking is allowed is outside the main airport building.
Please try to remember which door you leave the airport by so you do
not get lost
can I call home?
usually best to wait until you reach your homestay to phone home.
Because we try to not leave you waiting long before leaving for your
homestay, and because buying a phone card and finding the phones can be
a long process, there is not often enough time to make a call home. In
order to use a payphone, you need $0.25, and you phone a number on the
back of your calling card for Vancouver. Then you enter your PIN number
on the back of your calling card, enter 011 (for international calls),
then the PIN, then the country code and phone number. Country codes are
listed in the front section of the White Pages.
do I get a bus pass? How do I get to school?
It is usually best
to refer this question to your homestay family. They will
know for what zone to buy your bus pass and will show you which route
to take to school.
