Booking Travel


Clubs & Societies travel

All Clubs & Societies are allowed to organise trips away for their members. Any payments or bookings for trips away must be organised through the SU Finance Office, and must complete an Offsite Travel Form at least seven days before you leave.

Trips within the UK or Ireland

You can organise your transport and accommodation as direct payments to suppliers by submitting a TAF to the SU Finance Office. For example, you could make a payment directly to your chosen hotel by entering their supplier details on the TAF and submitting this to the team in the SU Finance Office.

You also have the option to book through CTM, the University's contracted travel management company (see below).

Trips outside the UK or Ireland

For all travel outside the UK or Ireland, you must make arrangements through CTM, the University's contracted travel management company. You cannot book direct with transport or accommodation providers for international travel. CTM will manage this for you and will be there for you to contact any time if there any issues during your trip. You will pay an additional booking fee to CTM when booking any international trips.
