Vancouver and victoria's Friendly Airport Student
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN
Whether it be an
airport, ferry terminal, train or bus station:
A Beaton's Meet
& Greet representative will be there to greet you as soon as
you enter the Arrivals area. See the photos at the top and bottom of
this page of the airport Arrivals areas. Our sign is big and bold but
if you miss it and the crush of people hurrying out all you need to do
is go to one of the many pay phone booths and dial (604) 377-5455.
Our representative will come to you.
Our drivers know
the City and surrounding areas well and can give you a great deal of
information which will start you off on the right foot. You will
receive pamphlets and maps, including directions to the school,
information and coupons for a number of scenic and educational
You will be
driven to your homestay in a late model mini-van by patient
professional drivers, receive a bottle water for the journey and given
a guided tour as you cross the City. Our representative will, in fact,
give you your first English lesson as you travel to your homestay. If
you have questions about protocols in Canadian homes, 0ur
representative can help to calm your concerns by answering as many
questions as possible. Our representative will take you right into your
new home and introduce you to the family.
We ensure that
you will be taken care of even if your flight is delayed, ahead of
schedule or you experience a delay in coming through Immigration and
Customs at the Airport. If your host family, for some reason is not at
home (because your arrival time changes), our representative will
ensure that you are placed in a safe and comfortable environment
temporarily until the host family returns.
Don't take a
chance with public transportation. You could be left sitting on a
doorstep or left at the wrong place.
Bus drivers and
taxicab drivers do not know anything about your school or your needs.
Travel with a service that cares about you, the foreign student.
We look forward to seeing you in
Canada this year!
