TRAVEL INFORMATION

We will organise all the participants travel both inside Hungary from the airport and to the airport. We will be in constant contact with the participants before purchasing the tickets, in order to select the right flights and get to the airport.

Before the actual event we will send all of the important information for the participants of course.

FINANCIAL DATA

The project is funded by Erasmus+, the food, accommodation and travel costs are covered. The limit of travel reimbursement varies from country to country and based on the rules of the Erasmus+ Program Guide.

The tickets required for the trip will be purchased in advance by the Federation and provided to the participants. This is conditional on a deposit of EUR 100 per participant being transferred to the bank account specified in the contract. The amount of the deposit will be returned to the participant’s bank account number provided by the participant arrived for the training.

MEALS

We provide meals for everyone three times a day. Breakfasts will be served in the venue’s dining room. Lunches will be in the office and for dinner, we will go out every evening together to a restaurant nearby the office. We will consider anyone’s special needs if you let us know in time. There will be no chance for changing menus!

ABOUT THE INSURANCE AND COVID

We are not able to buy insurance you in Hungary. EU Health Card is accepted in all hospitals so bring it if you have. Basically that is enough to get primary health care in case of emergency. If you wish to have a complex insurance please inform us about it, as we need to count with the costs of it.

Covid information: Now in Hungary there are no Covid restrictions, you can travel in the country without vaccinations or tests, and you don’t have to wear a face mask (except in healthcare instituions)
