Commission Decision C(2021)35 authorises the use of unit costs for the reimbursement of eligible travel costs awarded under any action or programme financed by the Union budget under the 2021-2027 MFF period. This page provides two calculators to allow the granting authority calculate the relevant distance for identifying the correct unit cost under point 5.1 of the Decision (Amounts for return air, rail and combined air/rail journey).

The unit cost to be paid depends on the distance between the place of departure and place of arrival. The two calculators below can be used to calculate this distance. The appropriate unit cost for a return trip will be determined by comparing the distance from the calculator to the distance bands listed in the table below.
