Reimbursement for green travel
KTH and Erasmus + offer a travel reimbursement to you who choose to travel by train, bus, or carpool to and/or from your study destination in Europe. Read more about compensation for green travel on this page.
For students going on travel from 1 August 2022
Erasmus+ offer travel reimbursement in the amount of 50 € to students who choose to take the train, bus, or carpool to and/or from their study destination in Europe. The reimbursement will be made at the same time as the second payment of the Erasmus+ grant. The cost for the ticket, the destination and a confirmation number must be clearly stated on the receipt. The ticket/-s must include your name, all destinations along the track and all dates. This applies to students studying abroad from the autumn semester 2022.
In the new Erasmus programme, there is also a possibility to be eligible for travel days. You may have a maximum of four days to/from your study destination on return trips, and a maximum of two days to or from your study destination. The daily amount is linked to the destination and is the same as the scholarship (calculated per day).
The student insurance Student OUT provided by Kammarkollegiet only covers the direct trip to the study destination. It is valid in the country where the studies are to be carried out. If you make a longer stop during your journey to the study destination, you must purchase additional travel insurance for this period.
You have to upload a receipt for the ticket and the ticket itself as one pdf document into Mobility Online. The reimbursement will be made at the same time as the second payment of the Erasmus+ grant. On the receipt, you must clearly state the cost for the ticket, the destination and a confirmation number. The ticket/-s must include your name, all destinations along the track and all dates. If you are travelling by Interrail, this pass's specific rules and regulations apply. Please read more here: Interrail pass.
When travelling by car, at least two students must travel together to receive the compensation. You must upload your proof of travel to Mobility Online. The proof can be, for example, a contract for a rental car, receipts for purchase of fuel, receipts for hotel accommodation and fees for car customs (road tolls).
For the journey to be considered green, at least 50 per cent of the travel arrangements must be made by either train, bus, or car.
