The promoter shall provide local transportation to & from the closest international airport (Rennes) or local airport (Lannion) to the venue for all teams, including qualification, as well coaches and the 1 NF head of delegation accompanying the teams starting from August 1st onward up until August 8th.  All other companions however will be responsible for their own local transportation.

**Should you wish to fly into Paris (Charles de Gaulle), please take note of the following:
A bus will be picking up the players at the airport with 1 bus a day, as follows (approx. 8 hour bus ride)

Monday the 1st: at 18h00

Tuesday the 2nd
: at approximately 11h00 as the technical meeting for the qualification tournament is scheduled at 19h00

Wednesday the 3rd: at approximately 11h00 as the technical meeting for main draw is scheduled at 19h00

As mentioned above, the bus journey can last about 8 hours as the competition site is more than 500km from Paris. The organizer is in charge of the transportation for the players, coaches and head of the delegations. All other members of the delegations could take these buses if seats are available and if they pay the ticket price of the trip that will be soon defined.

The organizers would however like to remind you that the national train service is very efficient, simple, reliable and much quicker than a bus trip, which leaves directly from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Rennes, where they can also arrange for your pick-up. They would also be available to help you to prepare for this option.

If you choose this route from Paris, the organizer will need to urgently know how many persons (players, coaches, head of delegations) will arrive in Paris and will indeed take the bus.
