Travel

Travel risk assessment, insurance and booking guidance for staff and PGRs is on the Travel Advice page.

A list of reasons for essential travel can be found in the University of Exeter Principles for Essential Travel, and all travel must align with these principles and the approvals process detailed therein.

For queries regarding authority to travel or compliance with the above guidelines, please contact travelqueries@exeter.ac.uk.

All authorised travel should be booked through our travel management providers, Click Travel and Key Travel.

On 1st June 2022, Click Travel will transition to using the TravelPerk brand in the UK.

Vehicle Hire

For travel authorised as above, vehicle hire can be booked through Co-Cars and Enterprise Rent-a-Car.

For Enterprise Rent-a-Car you will need to be registered on Enterprise’s online booking tool, B2B, for all national and international bookings. Contact procurement@exeter.ac.uk to allow access and for any booking queries.  Please note that you MUST raise a requisition in T1 for any bookings with Enterprise and provide them with a purchase order (PO) number BEFORE travel.

A staff discount is available through Enterprise.  You will need to register with the Emerald Car Club in order to receive the discount, but this is free to do.

The University of Exeter is also proud to share that we have partnered with Co-Cars to offer low emission hybrid vehicle hire to university staff for both business and personal use with 24/7 bookings available. Visit our sustainable travel page for further details.
