The EU Travel Grant is calculated based on the distance band and activity type selected. The grant for Exceptional Costs For Expensive Travel can be requested only if the standard travel grant based on unit cost per distance band (EU Travel Grant) does not cover at least 70% of actual travel costs.

In cases where the EU Travel Grant is under 70% of the real travel costs, the check box for Request Exceptional Costs for Expensive Travel should be ticked. Checking this box will automatically set the field EU Travel Grant to zero euros. You should then enter the Real Travel Cost and up to 80% of the real travel cost can be indicated as Exceptional Costs for Expensive Travel (or eligible cost for the EU grant).

Both EU Travel Grant and Exceptional Costs for Expensive Travel can not be used for the same mobility (they are mutually exclusive).




Tick the box "Exceptional Cost for Expensive Travel".

In the budget section of the mobility screen, tick the box Request Exceptional Cost for Expensive Travel? (1). A warning message will appear to confirm that: "If you request an EU grant to cover exceptional cost for expensive travel, the (standard) EU Travel Grant for this participant will become 0. Your confirmation will also mean that the EU Travel Grant does not cover at least 70% of the eligible travel cost of the participant." Click on the CONFIRM (2) button.
