Travel Expenses

The travel expenses (costs of participants, including accompanying persons and facilitators, from their place of origin to the venue of the activity and return) are calculated by the Financing mechanism as contribution to unit costs. It is a lump sum.

News:

  1. Green Travel: as you cant tell from the table above, a Green Travel option (transport with low emissions, as trains, buses and carpooling) receives different funding.
  2. Travelling Days: with traditional transport: 1 day before and after the activity; with green transport: up to 4 days.

Remember that for each travelling day the participant is eligible for the Personal Support funding (that differs from one country to another).
