Reimbursement Procedure

IGLYO will reimburse your travel costs up to €300 after the conference by bank transfer, on receipt of the reimbursement form​, with all receipts. If you are travelling from Turkey, we will reimburse your travel costs up to €400. You must send all needed digital versions of documents and receipts no later than 15 days after the event ends.

In order to be reimbursed for your travel you must meet the following conditions:

  • Be over 18 years old at the time of going to the Activist Academy
  • Have paid the Activist Academy participation fee (by16 June 2023)
  • Participate in at least 80% of the Activist Academy programme; 
  • Have all relevant itemised receipts for your costs (a cardholder receipt is not sufficient, the items purchased must be listed on the receipt); 
  • Copies of your physical or digital boarding passes (even if you check in online, please save a PDF of the boarding passes that you can send to us);
  • All claims made must be recorded on the IGLYO Reimbursement Form, signed and dated by the claimant and accompanied by itemised receipts, which must be attached to the Reimbursement Form. All receipts must be arranged so they are fully and clearly visible;
  • Have sent your reimbursement form​ and all receipts in one single PDF document to our Administration Officer Maruschka at by 31 July 2023 at 17:00 CET;
  • When sending the form and documents back by email, please use "AA23 Reimbursement Form + First Name + Last Name" in the subject line so we may easily track it down.

All accommodation and meals are provided as part of the conference. IGLYO expects all participants to book their own travel, but can assist with this in special circumstances. If you need IGLYO to book your flight directly, please fill out this form by 28 May 2023, 23:59 CET.

If you book travel and are no longer able to attend, we will not be able to reimburse the travel expenses. We encourage you to consider refundable options where possible.

Tickets & Receipts

In order to receive a reimbursement the following must be provided:

  • Travel itinerary or booking confirmation with costs of the flights and itinerary, this is usually sent to you by email by the airline at the time of purchase
  • Boarding pass (in PDF/PNG) - you can take a screenshot of the boarding pass on your phone
  • Any other costs incurred with full itemised receipts
  • Failure to supply tickets or itemised receipts (simple card receipts will not be reimbursed) will make the cost ineligible to our funder, meaning we cannot reimburse you for this cost. Receipts from a credit card machine will not be accepted.

Whenever possible, you should check in online prior to departure and save the copy of electronic boarding passes to be sent with your reimbursement form after the event. If you're not able to provide a boarding pass, we will not be able to reimburse your travel. Please note that some budget airlines require you to check in online to avoid additional charges.

  • Ask for itemised receipts
  • Keep all receipts
  • Keep all boarding passes
