If you are staying in a homestay, Club TIS Hotel or one of our apartments, then you will be met at the Torquay bus or train station on arrival.
To ensure that someone is available to meet you, it's very important that we receive arrival times well in advance.
If you come by taxi transfer, you will be taken directly to your accommodation.
We strongly recommend that tickets and seat reservations are booked well in advance, especially for travel between May and September.
