Question details
Acceptable options for accommodation, catering and travel
Dear Chafea Procurement Team, Is there a minimum star rating which should apply to hotel accommodation? Are economy class tickets acceptable for flights/trains? Is breakfast mandatory for the hotel accommodation? Are we free to propose public transport (i.e. in lieu of taxis, where the public service transport is frequent and efficient) Thank you and kind regards
- Hotel: The hotels should be at least 3 stars hotels, in the city where the meeting will take place, and ensuring that there is a good public transportation connection with the venue. - Breakfast should be offered in the hotel. - Economy class tickets for flights are acceptable. However, for trains it would be desirable to upgrade to first class. - Transportation from the airport to hotel/venue per invitee: the tenderers are expected to facilitate transportation as stated under task 1.2.7 “Organizing and paying the transportation from the airport to the hotel/venue per invitee”
