Individuals are requested to purchase the lowest available fare at a reasonable travel time. We do not intend to make all people fly red-eyes when flying from one coast to the opposite coast.

For more guidance please see the information on the Designee Travel page 

The cost of the transportation to and from a point of origin of travel falls within the travel expense policy. We expect a reasonable expense and is the project’s discretion if they want to cover this portion.

New America will reimburse you according to the guidelines on the Designee Travel page

Terms and Conditions: All flights, up to the lowest-available, most direct, coach class fare (standard economy). Up to the lowest available business class fare for international flights (arrives in a different country than that from which it departed) of more than five hours actual flight time, including domestic connecting flights. Baggage fees, which include oversize/overweight bags if the oversize/overweight bags contain NVF equipment/supplies/materials.

We are expecting that ticket costs from origination to convening and back to origination should cost the same or lower. PIT-UN can essentially reimburse what the cost would be to travel on an intended day. When reconciling this expense, you will need to submit screenshot information showing the cost on departure day was similar to or less than the actual end date of the convening.
