Green Travel Top-Up

WUR students receiving an Erasmus+ grant can receive a Green Travel Top-Up if they use environmentally friendly, sustainable means of transport for their trip to AND from their host country. This includes travel by train, bus or carpooling.

Submit corresponding proof and you will receive a single contribution of EUR 50, plus 2 additional days of Erasmus+ grant to cover your travel days (e.g. depending on the destination 8-17 €/day).

In order to apply for the Green Travel Top-Up:

  • Thesis/Internship exchange students - please fill in and sign the Declaration of Honour. Send the completed and signed Declaration of Honour plus proof of your green travel (for example a bus/train ticket) to It is sufficient to only provide a ticket of your trip to your host organisation.
  • Study exchange students - you can apply for the Green Travel Top-Up as part of your Grant Application in Osiris Student. After your Grant Agreement has been processed, and once we have received your fully signed Learning Agreement, you will receive an email asking to enter information about your intended way of travel. When traveling green both ways, you will be asked to confirm this by checking the box instead of uploading the Declaration of Honour. You do need to upload proof of your green travel (for example a bus/train ticket). It is sufficient to only provide a ticket of your trip to your host university.
