During the Olympiad each team (6 people) will be provided with two double rooms and two single rooms, including full board, free of charge. Delegates are accommodated free for the whole period of the FIDE congress (August 4 - 14). The on-line registration of teams and delegates will also be used as an application for accommodation. Allocation of the teams and delegates to hotels will be decided in consultation with FIDE. The teams will be informed of their hotels when known.
Teams can apply to upgrade their rooms. Due to limited hotel capacity we cannot guarantee that we can meet all wishes, but we promise to do our best.
If a team wishes to upgrade it will be charged a supplement per day as follows:
Double room upgrade to two single rooms: NOK 900/€108* per day
Single room upgrade to a double room: NOK 500/€60* per day
Accompanying people (depending on capacity):

Double room: NOK 1000/€121* per room per day
Meals are not included.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are NOK 650 extra.
Invoices, in NOK, will be issued to federations for all supplementary accommodation.

The aim of the travel fund is to help those federations who are in need of financial support in order to send teams to Tromsø.
The Travel Fund is essentially aimed at developing countries, meaning countries in categories 3-5 according to the FIDE Development Commission (DC). Federations which are not on the list but have special needs can also apply. The final decision will be taken by the Tromsø 2014 Organising Committee.
The Travel Fund is provided for players. Federation captains, heads of delegations, arbiters, experts, volunteers and trainers are not entitled to receive a travel subsidy.
Travel support will be calculated based on the following criteria:
