During the conference AS-KOOP, our school’s service bus provider, will provide free shuttle service to schools staying in either of the designated conference hotels, which are Mercure and Harem Hotels.
AS-KOOP also offers other services such as transportation to and from Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen Airports. These services aren’t free and will be charged by AS-KOOP. It is also possible to hire a bus for a day in order to explore Istanbul; although not during the conference.
The cost per person each way to and from is 10 euros for both airports (Atatürk Airport, Sabiha Gökçen Airport). Each way to and from the bus station also costs 10 euros per person. There is no charge for advisors travelling with their delegations.
If you wish, you may hire a bus from ASKOOP for 150 euros per day to tour Istanbul. It is possible to come before the conference or stay after the conference for sightseeing. Please contact us for advice on sightseeing in Istanbul.
Please note that payments must be made directly to AS-KOOP either by bank transfers by October 23rd or in cash upon arrival. All transport requests are arranged through the AS-KOOP Company. The sending school is responsible for any transfer fees and bank charges.
Schools that wish to pay their transportation fees as Turkish Lira (TRY) bank transfers are welcome to do so. If you wish to complete your payment in Turkish Liras, please visit http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/kurlar/today.xml to convert your fee to TRY. In order to convert your Euro fee to Turkish Liras; multiply your fee by the EUR/TRY selling rate of the day that you are making the payment. If you come across any difficulties, please contact the FAT team.
Cash upon arrival payments can be made in either Euros or Turkish Liras. Below are the details of the bank accounts of AS-KOOP if you would like to pay by bank transfer.
