Information on travel and related agreements

Last changed: 15 October 2021

On this page, you will find information on approved travel suppliers and SLU agreements related to travel. Please note that our guidelines for business travel expressly state that all bookings must be made via our procured travel agency. This does not apply to local public transport.

Insurance

SLU provides travel insurance for all domestic and foreign business travel. The insurance covers accidents, theft, luggage and legal protection.

Any injury during travel must be reported to the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency. You can print and fill out a business travel insurance certificate.

There is also separate travel insurance for all travel booked through our procured travel agency, Egencia. Read more about the travel agency’s travel insurance (in Swedish).

Visas

For some countries, you need a visa to enter. Most of our departments have an agreement with Comet Consular Services who will assist with this; check with your department administrator if that applies to your department.

Hotel rooms

On the site Avropa, run by the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency, you will find the framework agreement for domestic hotel services.

Airport bus/train

UL (Uppland regional traffic), Umeå, Flygbussarna (airport coaches), Arlanda Express,  SJ (rail) and Samtrafiken (Skåne).

Rental cars

SLU travel guidelines

  • Our travel guidelines state that staff should book medium-sized eco-friendly cars (the smallest models should be avoided for security reasons). If several people are travelling together, or if you are transporting large amounts of equipment or material, a larger model may be rented.
  • Book through our procured travel agency or directly with the rental company.
  • If you book directly with the rental company, remember to state that you are booking on behalf of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and give them our customer number.
  • If the rental company listed as the first choice does not have an eco-friendly vehicle available, contact the company ranked second.
  • Check the car and inform the rental company of any visible damage before you depart.
  • Fill up before you return the car to avoid extra costs.

Short-term rental (up to 30 days)

For short-term rentals, the framework agreement is ranked, meaning you book with the supplier listed as number 1. 

The car can be picked up at the rental site or elsewhere, as agreed.
