Applying for the travel grant and wondering how one is to define the most practical/economical flight which is the criteria for student finance.
I'm going to New Orleans in August for the year and there are direct flights available for around £1000 which takes around 10 hours, or you can get connecting flights which take it up to 20 hours+ but cost much less, more around £400.
So where does one draw the line for the time/money trade-off in this situation? Obviously it's a big inconvenience to have to spend almost a full day travelling somewhere you can travel in half the time, but direct flights are so much more expensive.
Can anyone help me with this?
