The Club Med formula
To get to our Villages, depending on your destination and package booked, Club Med offers you flights or train rides.
THE BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE is specified on your travel itinerary or ticket. We ask you to stay within these limits; Club Med will not pay any excess baggage charges incurred.
IN THE STATION, as in most airports, Club Med is available to inform and help you. For some destinations served by the train, Club Med hostesses accompany you to make sure your journey goes smoothly.
AIRPORT OR STATION TRANSFERS to and from the Village are included in the Air Package. This is one of the most practical ways to travel. Transfer times shown in the Villages webpages do not include the time needed to complete all formalities (police, baggage collection, customs...).
FOR YOUR PRE- AND POST-ROUTING, we advise you to leave at least 3 hours for a connecting flight in the same airport.
Club Med has always guaranteed you total peace of mind on holiday.
Your children get a taste of freedom and you spend some time not having to think about practical problems, your mind free of all worries.
On a day-to-day basis, these values unique to Club Med result in the G.O® being able to really listen. They know how to engender mutual complicity and trust between their young G.M®. At the same time, all the children stay close to their parents and are free to see them whenever they want during the day.
The G.O. are responsible for the children within the opening times of Baby Club Med*, Petit Club Med* or Mini Club Med and as long as the parents or guardian have duly filled in the presence register available to them, where next to their signature they must specify what time they are leaving their child, what time they will pick her/him up and where they can be contacted.
For the Baby Club Med* and the Petit Club Med*
This re gister also serves as a communication booklet. So the parents or guardian can d out about the meals, nappies, sleep... for their child and can, if necessary, on this book, pass on their comments or recommendations.
For the Mini Club Med
When the register has been signed on arriving, the G.O® give the child of 4 to 7 years old a bracelet clearly indicating they belong to the Mini Club Med. The 46 Club Med Villages offering Juniors' Club Med supervision welcome juniors from 11 to 13 years old all year round and 14/17 year olds during the school holiday periods (except in Forges Les Eaux). They are only in the charge of the G.O® during the activities organised for them and offered on an as you please basis and are in no way supervised constantly.
Club Med is doing its best to put safety measures in place to protect everyone. Nevertheless, we ask you to keep a permanent eye on your children when they are not doing a supervised activity and are, in pa rticular, around the swimming pool, even if monitored, or on the beach.

It was in 1950, in the first Club Med Village, in the Balearic Islands, that the term "G.O", an abbreviation of "Gentil Organisateur" (Gentle/Kind Organiser), was first used. A label of quality produced from the imagination of holidaymakers who were ding out about Club Med for the first time. One good turn deserves another, so these pioneers were in turn christened: "Gentil Membre" (Gentle/Kind Member) or "G.M".
