    Hi there,

    I'm currently on my study abroad year in the USA, and have received a travel grant for my first return flight (from UK to USA). I was looking to book my flight back to the USA for after Christmas, however I am unsure of my return date (April/May time), and so I am unable to book a return flight.

    I see the travel grant is valid for up to 3 return flights, however I was wondering if I would be able to claim for two single flights instead, i.e. a single flight from UK to USA after Christmas, and another single from USA to UK after I have finished my studies.

    Would anyone be able to tell me if this is possible?

    Thanks

    Hi JacobWR

    Students must be studying overseas for at least 50% of each academic quarter (term) in which they wish to claim, to be eligible to receive the grant for up to 3 return journeys.

    As it is return journeys that you are eigible for and you are looking to purchasing single journeys, then you would need to request this in writing with a cover letter /customer reference number, explaining the reason.

    If you wish to purchase an Economy Flex fare (not Plus) due to not knowing your return dates , you need to request this before claiming for consideration.

    Regards Rona
