Staff travel update: October 2021


October 11th, 2021

Now that travel is becoming more commonplace, staff are reminded that information around travelling on university business can be found on the Travel and Expenses workspace page.

New university travel guidance documents have been produced to outline the steps that staff need to undertake when embarking on Domestic and Overseas travel.  The Overseas guidance takes into account the new government international travel rulings, which were introduced on Monday 4 October 2021.

All travel should be booked through the university’s travel management partner, Key Travel.  If you believe you are unable to book your trip through Key Travel, approval for alternative arrangements must be requested from the Travel Team.

It is important that the Covid-19 Off Site Travel Policy is followed and that Travel Risk Assessments are completed for all travel, whether it is Domestic or Overseas.  Information about how to complete these are contained on the Health and Safety Workspace site.

For any information on Travel Insurance, please visit the Travel Insurance SharePoint page.

The university also provides a number of useful tools for travellers.  When booking through Key Travel you will receive travel updates for the countries you will be visiting through Amadeus Mobile Messenger.  You are also able to download the Amadeus mobile app to use during your travel.

Another way to receive travel updates and local country information is by signing up to the Chubb/Crisis24 Travel Security Services.

Details on how to do this are located on the Travel Insurance SharePoint page.  Again, an associated app is available to download.
