Travel, Food and Accommodation
Participants will be accommodated at the newly renovated Student dorm in Berane (https://www.facebook.com/domberane) in the city center with private toilets, shower and a breakfast. There will be 2 or 3 person per room, of the same gender or according to previous arrangements.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in the dormitory or in the city center. Coffee breaks will be available every day, too.
Every participant has to send us a proposal of itinerary in advance for confirmation asap. Copy of their tickets and boarding passes via e-mail and the originals via postal mail. Once we receive all of the tickets, we will reimburse your money via bank transfer or cash on the spot-whichever you prefer.
The food and accommodation will be provided and paid by the host organization EPEKA Montenegro, with financial support of the Erasmus+ Programme, the European Commission. Regarding tickets for traveling, 100% of travel costs will be reimbursed on the basis of the CHEAPEST possibilities, e.g. second class railway tickets, bus, flights etc. by bank transfer after the kick off meeting as soon as we get the original tickets to our mail address by post. We need you to buy round trip tickets, and send us a copy by email before arriving here, so our accountant knows, and adjust the budget.
We advise you to buy your tickets as soon as possible, so that it fits in our limited budget for 100% reimbursement. Thus, we ask you to save all documents (Original tickets, boarding passes, invoices or bills with the ticket price) which are related to your travel, since the documentation background is obligatory for reimbursement. We kindly ask you to buy all the tickets for the travel for both directions – return tickets (plane tickets, train tickets, bus tickets and etc.), because we will be able to reimburse only REAL EXPENSES (made expenses).
IMPORTANT: We cannot refund any travel costs done by taxi. Please note if you buy your tickets in a currency other than EUROs, we will convert to EUROs according to the exchange rates from the official European Commission website: http://ec.europa.eu/budget/inforeuro/index.cfm?Language=en Participants must travel from the country of the sending organization, and back. Following the guidelines of the Erasmus + programme the travel back must be realized by the participants on direct way within maximum of 2 days.
