Re: [board-discuss] Travel Expenses Reimbursement Policy
I usually search for the lowest cost fare and do a screen capture to document what I would have
paid had I chosen to fly that way and book on that day. This would fit in with Simon's second
wording suggestion, below, and the probable intent of the rule.

Of course, that statement is almost meaningless in today's air travel market. There is no
objective way to identify "the lowest coach class fare" for a given journey. The market is
dynamic and global; the price can change hourly; there are no historical records; the prices
available to you depend on your booking system anyway. As written the statement helps no-one and
merely creates uncertainty for everyone involved, including TDF.
It would be better to say:
"TDF will reimburse or pay the cost of your flight on condition you commit to using the lowest
cost coach fare reasonably available to you"
if that's what you mean, or
"TDF will contribute to your air travel costs an amount no more than the lowest-cost coach fare
it would be reasonable to buy, as agreed in advance with the Board or its nominated agent"
if you actually are happy to contribute towards higher cost fares.
