One of our meet and greet coordinators will meet you at the airport, and will accompany you to your accommodation, whilst providing you with further advice and information.
If you are a candidate arriving in a location not specified above, we will reimburse your taxi fare to the maximum value of $50 from the airport to your accommodation. Should you have special requirements for your airport pick up, for example a larger car for luggage, or a child seat, you will be required to pay for this extra expense.
