    Hi I am a college student. I am currently helping my electronics/computing teacher organise a short trip for a class of 20 pupils (mostly 18 year olds) to visit the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland for 3-4 days.
    However, the college principle has told me recently that due to some ridiculous government policy or something, the school may only be able to use airlines which will invoice the college. Does this mean we will not be able to fly with a budget airline. I would hate to have to book an expensive airline and make the trip cost higher for the other students.
    Also can anybody recommend any CHEAP accommodation (i was thinking something like a swiss version of travelodge or etap) near the Large hadron collider/Geneva suitable for a class of 20 and 3 teachers?
    Any advice welcomed.

    Well, if the college has a credit card then it shouldn't prove a problem with regards to the invoicing issue. You may have to ring them to book that many people onto a flight or book it as several different bookings......

    Or go through a travel agent designed for larger groups?
