Australia Awards flight travel itineraries

Can Australia Awards Awardees choose flight itineraries for their travel?

The Australia Awards Policy Guidelines set out conditions that apply to travel. Awardees are to travel by the most direct route and are entitled to the ‘best fare of the day’ which is the cheapest economy class fare available during the period of the travel. You will not be permitted to deviate from these conditions in order to travel with dependants or family members.

You are entitled to travel between the regional or international airport closest to your home city or town, and the airport closest to the institution where you are studying.

Once a ticket is issued, it cannot be varied without the approval of the Program Area or institution. Generally, any changes made after a flight is booked, will be at your expense.

Your scholarship does not cover the cost of excess baggage or travel insurance or other incidental costs.
