Exciting news! We are now able to support your society booking transport (rental cars, coaches etc) and making trips.
What is a trip?
A trip constitutes an outing outside of Leeds city/campus or an overnight stay. A domestic day trip, for instance, would be a visit to a castle in another location in the UK where the visit is completed in one day. A domestic overnight trip would be the same, but with an overnight stay - perhaps visiting a castle and then staying overnight so that more sightseeing can be done the next day.
An international trip is one that takes place outside of the UK. Some groups use specific tour companies to help plan their international trip, e.g. I Love Tour. International trips often include an overnight stay. Due to Covid-19 regulations, society/club travel outside the UK is not currently permitted.
For all trips, insurance is recommended. LUU does not offer travel insurance to it’s groups, only Public Liability insurance.
We require you to fill out some forms when you are going on any type of trip. This lets us know where you are going, how you are getting there and who is going with you. You will also need to complete a Risk Assessment so you know what potential risks there are, and how to manage them (unless this covered by your Annual Risk Assessment). We require this information to help keep you and your members safe.
We have made changes to our trips and transport forms and guidance. This is responding to your feedback for clearer information and simpler booking processes. Please pass on any feedback to your Development and Engagement Coordinator.
