Cost recovery – World Veterans
The AFF works on a cost recovery basis for all representative tours. It does not make a profit from the tours, and it is not possible to provide exact estimates of costs prior to travel (due to last-minute changes and external matters). The process for invoicing fencing tours is outlined HERE.
Participants on the tour share costs associated with running the tour. For this tour, athletes will be charged as follows:
- A deposit on the Tour Levy of $250.00 for each entry at time of nomination.
This amount will contribute to individual and team entries only, administration costs, and associated other costs. For clarity, it does not include the cost of travel, accommodation, or meals. Travel, accommodation, and meals will be up to the individual fencer to arrange and manage.
Fencers that are not selected will be refunded the deposit in full.
A reconciliation will be undertaken post the event with refunds provided as required based on individual and team entries.
Nominations can be made via Register Now.
