Air travel between the UK and the Levant should be budgeted at economy fare rate, which is normally below £400 (or up 3 TG1718 guidance to £500 in high season). If costs exceed £800 or the CBRL is being asked to support only a proportion of the total costs, please give details of other sources of funding, so that the CBRL may assess whether the project is viable. The CBRL’s UK Administrative Secretary must be kept informed of the results of other applications.

Up to £800.
