Leave fare examples
This example is to illustrate assisted leave travel approved for a 24-month posting.
Example scenario: A particular posting location lacks suitable shopping and medical facilities, and has a hostile political regime, where members are subject to constant harassment.
It is decided that members require assisted leave travel for all these purposes.
Shopping, once every 12 months.
Medical checkups, once every 12 months.
Relief from the hostile environment, every six months.
Result: The result is that the shopping and checkup needs are met by the same trip, which also provides one of the trips for environmental relief.
At the end of 24 months, the member has taken these three trips.
One trip to a regional leave centre.
Two trips to a relief leave centre.
