Unable to Travel:
Unfortunately we understand from time to time unforeseen situations can arise and this can lead to participants cancelling their participation. However, ARYP CIC will not be held liable and we are unable to refund for flights or any other travel you have purchased. (Please see insurance)

Spending Money:
ARYP CIC can not advise how much money you should take with you. However we do suggest to take extra funds with you to cover any meals outside of the project or any excursions you may wish to join or even buy some gifts for family and friends.

Mobile and Wifi:
The project location will have access to coverage and WiFI, however it is not guaranteed there will be speed as good as home roaming. Any cost incurred whilst out on the project will not be covered by ARYP CIC.

Travel Insurance:
The project does not cover travel insurance. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct level of cover before traveling. We suggest to check with your bank first as many high street banks offer free travel as part of the current account. However if this is not he case the we suggest to check online or try your local Post Office.

Currency:
The project and the country in question is in EU so everything will be in Euros. Please note there may be little to none facilities to exchange money whilst out there. So therefore we suggest to have the currency exchanged before your travel.
