How much you can get

The amount of Away from Base Assistance you can get depends on the costs involved in the activity. It also depends on how you arrange the activity.

This assistance can cover the reasonable costs involved in an away from base activity for all the following:

When you organise an overnight away from base activity, you should arrange a reasonably priced residential expenses package. This is where you package reasonable travel, accommodation and meal costs with service providers for multiple students to save money.

When you claim, we’ll assess if the costs involved in the activity and package are reasonable. We’ll also assess if any of the students have reached their limits on Away from Base Assistance.
