Travel Guidelines

Step 1: Fill in the travel application 

Before making travel reservations ALWAYS fill out the travel application form which needs to be approved by the grant holder.

Travel applications are considered continuously. Remember to hang on to the approved application, as you need to upload it together with your other travel documents once you make the reimbursement in RejsUd.

In the application form remember to apply for daily allowance if agreed with grant holder.

Step 2: Book your transportation 

- By flight 

All flights MUST be booked through Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), the University’s official travel agency. To book you must have a user profile at Carlson Wagonlit Travel. If you don't have one contact your research coordinator.

  • When booking always ask Carlson Wagonlit Travel to put the requisition and activity number matching the grant on the bill. (Get it from your research group coordinator). 
  • ALWAYS book economy class airfare!
