Travel plans should be organised with your country coordinator and solidified before the conference. If, however, your plans do change please notify us by email immediately on transport@ypconference.eu. We will try our best to assist you with transport to/from Male Ciche. However, due to the limited bus schedule, there is no guarantee that we will be able to provide transportation for you. You can alternatively get a bus or taxi.

Flights should be booked following the instructions given on the registration form and in coordination with the saints in your cluster and country coordinator. We recommend booking flights that depart on the evening of the last day of the conference so that you do not miss the last message or the next day after 9am. If your flight is outside of this time you will need to make your own way to the airport, whether by bus or by taxi.
