On this page, you'll find instructions for how to go about
booking a business trip for yourself. More detailed information
about Umeå University rules, policies and information on business travel
and travel bookings is found on
Please book your trip as well in advance as possible, in order
to get the best price (in relation to travel and waiting time). See
the Umeå University policy and rules for more details on this.
The travel agency of Umeå University is XLNT Travel. Book your travel directly online. You need a
booking profile in order to be able to book yourself: Contact staff
Eriksson to apply for a booking profile.
Always have project number and activity number ready
before making a booking. (Project/activity number is linked to how
the trip is funded - which you should always know before making a
booking. If you have questions regarding this, ask accountant, Corné de Beer)
Try to only make one booking per trip (travel, taxi and
accomodation all together) to avoid double booking fees.
Don't use e-mail to contact the travel agency. If
you have questions - call staff administrator, Sara Eriksson
Booking cost (per booking item):
Always choose the hotel with the lowest cost, given the
reasonable location in relation to where your venue is and the aim
of your travel. To book hotels within Sweden, use XLNT travel, or look for hotels on
avropa.se and book directly with the hotel. When booking a
hotel abroad, either book directly using your University credit card, or contact staff
Eriksson if you need help with invoice information.
Taxi to/from Umeå Airport
Book your taxi to/from Umeå Airport directly when making
your travel booking. If you need to make a separate booking, please
find information here. When possible, please book a
shared taxi to the airport, since that cost is lower.
