E.4 - Transport costs

Answer

Further to the Agency’s travel policy, all experts must use the most appropriate and cost-effective means of transport. As far as possible, public or shared transport will be used.

Air travel

All flight tickets will be booked according to the following conditions:

  • in economy class or equivalent, at the lowest available rates, taking into account the times of meetings and/or special features of the mission for all segments that involve up to four hours continuous flying time;
  • in business class or equivalent, at the lowest available rates, taking into account the times of meetings and/or special features of the mission if the travel includes at least one segment involving at least four hours continuous flying time

If lower fare prices require a weekend stay (Sunday rule), additional per diems may be charged.

 

Rail travel

All journeys will be booked in first-class, taking the shortest and most cost-effective route.

 

Car rental

Will be charged at cost.

 

Car transfers

The use of private car will be charged on the basis of a kilometre allowance, currently fixed at 0.22 € per kilometre.
Car transfers are only permitted in case of service requirements [sheldsi1] or in particular circumstances (inadequate public transportation facilities or cost-effectiveness).
