Literally, probably yes. Otherwise, both elmegyek and átmegyek would be correct.

How do they differ in this case? át- and el- Would it be possible to use Oda- too?

I struggle with the exercises that require either oda- or el- since it seems that there is considerable overlap between the two

Odamegyek wasn't accepted. Part of the problem here I think is that the English version doesn't match how English speakers would think. If the question had been "I move out and go AWAY to another city" we would see what was wanted. As soon as the word "OVER" is used I think in terms of oda and át.

Would odamegyek work too? Thanks.

Apparently odamegyek doesn't work or that's what I found. If the English had been "I move out and go AWAY to another city" life would have been so much easier.
