travel information

Traveling to any of the SAI program locations is relatively simple since all have major airports nearby. Each student is responsible for his or her own travel arrangements and we suggest you make your reservations locally, well in advance of your travel dates. 

Waldorf Travel Service, located in the U.S., has handled flight ticketing for SAI students for more than 15 years, providing reliable, dedicated service and prompt assistance with any problems that may arise. Their staff is familiar with each SAI school’s calendar and travel requirements. If you choose to use Waldorf Travel we encourage you to book flights WELL IN ADVANCE (at least 90 days prior to departure) and to notify the travel agent that you are studying with SAI. Please note that the best-priced tickets go quickly, so we encourage you to contact Waldorf Travel as soon as possible to book arrangements.
