Exchange student going to Graz, Austria

Jump to last reply

My daughter is studying in Graz, Austria for an academic year beginning in September. She will probably have two suitcases and a carry-on bag to take all her belongings for the year. The ideal is that she arrives during the day to be picked up by someone in the university international office.
1. How much time should I allow for airline transfers in London or Berlin, or wherever the lowest rate travels?
2. Do the trains from Prague or Vienna to Graz run on time?
3. Does it matter if she arrives in Graz by train or airplane in terms of getting all her gear moved?
4. Will she go through customs at each new country or just the final destination?
5. Is there a way to get a cheaper flight without having a return flight (and does Austria allow this?)? [She does not want to come home during the semester break in February, but the 2nd semester doesn't end until July. Airline reservations only go to April right now...]

I think I also have these facts correct, but please tell me if I'm wrong.
1. She can get a SIM card for an unlocked phone at the airport.
2. She can use ATMs around town to get cash from her credit union debit/ATM card (VISA or PLUS system machines), and the local ATMs do not have charges.

Thanks for any advice you can give! I can't wait to go visit her!
