- Traveling to LAPBIAT station
- Every User Group must contact Project Manager Jyrki Manninen when planning the
traveling. LAPBIAT will organise flight tickets (all if possible) and traveling inside Finland.
The idea is that LAPBIAT will buy all possible tickets in advance and then send the ticket
to the User Group.
Car rental is not allowed under this project without very special explanations. (Of course, if
User Group still want to rent a car, it can do that with its own money).
Daily allowances will be paid from home to the LAPBIAT station and back. So, make a note for
yourself at what time your trip started and when it will end. Throughout the trip LAPBIAT
will pay daily allowance of 30 EUR (in 2006) for every full 24 hours starting at beginning of
the trip. If the last traveling day lasts less than 24 hours but more than 6 hours a full
daily allowance of 30 EUR will be paid. If the last traveling day lasts less than 6 hours but more than 2 hours
so called half daily allowance of 14 EUR will be paid.
All traveling expences will paid during the visit to the LAPBIAT station in cash (in EUROs).
