Booking your bus

Wherever possible, bus travel support to Discovery Film Festival screenings in Dundee will be open to schools in Fife, Perthshire, Dundee and Angus. Please let us know at the time of your screening request that you want to arrange bus transport. We will discuss this with you on an individual basis, and agree a specific timescale with you.

Please note restrictions in terms of group size for this service will continue to be in place.

1. Make a Discovery booking
Request a Discovery screening and make it clear you want to make arrangements for a bus. Please ensure that you give correct and working email addresses.

2. Receive your confirmation
When you receive an email confirmation of your Discovery Film Festival booking, this will contain your bus booking reference number. You will not be able to book your bus until you have received this number.

3. Reserve your bus
Reserve your bus before Wed 22 September by calling Fishers Tours on 01382 461999, using the bus booking reference number from your DCA confirmation email. Fishers Tours will contact you with details of your bus pick-up and drop-off times. Subsequent travel enquiries, including on the day of travel, should be communicated directly with Fishers Tours.

N.B. Each Discovery booking will have a separate code. If you are booking for more than one film, you will receive a different code for each. Please ensure that you reserve the buses for each visit and all pupils.

4. No email confirmation or bus booking reference?
If you have not received an email confirmation from us containing your bus booking reference please call DCA on 01382 432 444.

5. Final checks
Discovery Film Festival and DCA are not responsible for booking your bus transport. You must ensure you have received a confirmation email and bus booking reference number from DCA and reserve your free travel directly with Fishers Tours for each visit.

This service has been made possible through the partnership between Fishers Tours and DCA.

Wheelchairs
Unfortunately, Fishers Tours are unable to offer wheelchair accessible buses. DCA can arrange alternative travel for wheelchair users if required. Please contact Michael Coull, Cinema Coordinator at DCA, via michael.coull@dca.org.uk when booking your film and we will work with you to find the best solution.

Seatbelts
Seatbelts are provided on all Fishers Tours buses as standard.

Restrictions
Group size may have an impact on the availability of transport to and from DCA. For bookings for small groups of fewer than 20 pupils, we will discuss travel assistance on an individual basis.

Site visits
If you have any students for whom a first visit to the cinema at DCA might be a daunting prospect, we are happy to arrange a pre-visit. This will give them the chance to experience the auditorium and meet some of the staff they will be seeing on the day. To find out about arranging such a visit please contact Michael Coull, Cinema Coordinator at DCA, via michael.coull@dca.org.uk

Selected Discovery screenings will also take place at venues across Scotland. Contact mike.tait@dca.org.uk if you are interested in learning more.
