Travelling expenses at The Championships

State schools bands based more than 100 miles away qualify for £250 in travel assistance; where a ferry is involved and two nights away are required, £500 can be claimed.  

Quartets based more than 100 miles away quality for reimbursement of fuel costs at a rate of 20 pence per mile and/or public transport costs, up to a maximum of £100.  Where two nights away are involved, transport costs and accommodation costs of up to £200 can be claimed. Only one vehicle per quartet will be reimbursed. Where public transport is taken, receipts must be provided. 

A claim form will be issued at the Championships for completion and submission on the day. Stewards will have blank claim forms.

We recognise the barrier for some bands who have to pay considerable costs to come to the Championships. We may consider increasing travel expenses in special circumstances, so if you feel you need additional help in getting to the Championships please contact us at: info@sspdt.org.uk

Please note, travel expenses must be claimed within three months of the competition date.
