You will be responsible for researching your travel to and from Trivandrum Airport, however the amount will be covered through your crowdfunding efforts and we will assist you in booking your flights. There are a number of ways to get there, depending upon where you are traveling from. We generally fly from Gold Coast to Singapore and then Singapore direct to Trivandrum, however flying with Scoot/Air Asia to Chennai and then connecting from there to Trivandrum is also an easy/cost effective way to do it!
Please discuss flights with the team via Slack and he can assist you to arrange.
ARRIVAL DATES: We will be booking accomodation for all Ambassadors from April 14 (check-in) to April 25 (check-out). We need everyone to arrive by the evening of April 14 at the very latest, as we have put the 14th aside so that everyone can get settled in and prepared to start the on-ground induction at 9am the following morning.
Here are the arrival times for each Ambassador at Trivandrum airport (in order of time of arrival). We will ensure that each of you is picked up and taken to the house:
- John Needham: TBC
- Kelly Fraser: TBC
- Kim Westmorland: TBC
- Mayuri Chopra: TBC
- Imogen Gerraty: TBC
- Shalom Backus: TBC
- Sophie Whelan: TBC
PROGRAM DATES: The program will run from Monday 15th April at 9am to Wednesday 24th April at 5pm. We expect you to be available for the entirety of this period, unless in the case of serious unforseen circumstances. Your accommodation will be booked until the morning of April 25.
DEPARTURE DATES: You are free to stay around as long as you like after the 25th April. Be mindful that your insurance and accommodation as part of the Adventure will both expire on April 27 (to give you enough time to return home). After this time it is up to you to book and pay for the rest of your trip, including insurance. If you would like to fly back at a later date, please discuss with the team via Slack and they can help you to book a date of your choice or, if you want to keep your travel plans open, reimburse a flight upon receiving a receipt and invoice for the flight (not beyond PCFML’s return flight budget).
We will cover all of your on-ground transport as part of the Adventure. If you do want to go shopping or travel outside of the program you will be expected to cover those costs.
Food & Activities

3 meals per day OR a stipend to cover your own meals when organised food cannot be provided;
Accommodation for the night prior to, and the nights covering the duration of the project - 11 nights in total;
