No, the ‘spirit of the rules’ must be respected. The rules allow you to be accompanied during your trip to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg because we know that for many of you travelling abroad can present a certain level of stress, especially if you have never taken a plane or left your country even for a few days. We believe being accompanied by a person of your choice reduces stress and is also a way to share – with a loved one – the wonderful adventure that you will experience if you are selected as a finalist. However, you and your companion must travel together on the outbound journey.
The return trip can be made on different dates as we understand that your companion or yourself may have different diary constraints. When returning to your country, there is no reason to be stressed so we don’t have a problem with the travel dates being different.
In all cases, concerning the purchase of the travel tickets by the organisation, you and your companion must leave from the same location and must return to the same destination.
