Booking travel: important information

The University’s contract with both Co-operative Travel Management and Key Travel will expire today, Thursday 28 February 2013.

The Purchasing Office will shortly be conducting a tender process for travel provider(s) with a new contract expected to start on 1 July 2013.

In the meantime, Key Travel and Co-operative Travel Management will remain on the SAP system until the new contract has been concluded. Information in relation to both Key Travel and Co-operative Travel Management (charges, contact details) are available on the Purchasing Office website.

Summary changes

For the vast majority of University staff this will mean no change to your current arrangements, however please note the following:

  • As per the University travel policy staff may make their own arrangements through ABTA approved providers for lower value travel (under £500).
  • However, if you intend to spend more than £500 on travel and the source of funding is via a research grant, whose terms and conditions stipulate the use of an approved supplier, Key Travel must be used. Key Travel contact details and charges
