Purchasing the ticket

Those receiving a travel grant need to book their ticket as soon as possible after notification. In most cases the amount of travel grant is less than the actual ticket price, and participants need to cover the difference from their own budget. This is why it is most important to make the ticket booking at the earliest date in order to secure the cheapest possible ticket.

In case your travel grant exceeds 500 Euro, the pre-approval of your booking is required. Please contact us at with your ticket reservation information. Travel grants only cover economy flights between Budapest and the city of your residence. No other destinations can be included. If your itinerary must include more than two destinations, reimbursement will be based upon direct flight airfares.
