I have applied for a position in a firm abroad, and in the acceptance email they mentioned that they would provide budget return travel allowance.

Which of the following do you think budget most likely implies?

  1. A partial reimbursement of my return travel expenses (as defined by some maximum limit). (i.e. budget reimbursement)
  2. A reimbursement of my budget return travel, i.e. economy class travel or equivalent

EDIT: The company actually meant #2, as the chosen answer suggests. Thanks.

  • It refers to the first definition. – user66974 Oct 12 '17 at 21:32

    It probably means that they will reimburse the cost of return travel using budget airlines etc and economy class. Any costs above these would not be reimbursed. – Edwin Ashworth Oct 12 '17 at 21:42

    It could mean either or both. – Andrew Leach Oct 12 '17 at 21:48

It probably means they will reimburse a budget airline fare - in Europe Ryanair or easyjet, in South-East Asia Air Asia, there are others elsewhere in the world.
