Travel Tracking For Universities

Are you aware of your obligations regarding student and staff travel?

University Travel

As a university your travelling body consists of a combination of students, academic and university staff. 

Students and academics are likely to just go ahead purchase their travel based on their desires and requirements. Often they will look at their travel in isolation without consideration for the bigger picture, like safety and security.

University staff on the other hand travel on behalf of their institutions and their trips are generally well structured and planned. As they represent the university they expect the institution to ensure the travel is safe.

Duty Of Care

As an employer you have a duty of care to all of your employees, which means you should do everything that is reasonably possible to ensure their health, safety, and wellbeing. As a universities your duty of care extends to the students as well as the staff.

Tax Risk

As well as ensuring the safety and wellbeing of your travellers as part of your duty fo care, there are other risks you should consider. With academic staff taking sabaticals in other countries there is also tax risk. Spending significant amounts of time in different countries can put your travelers at the risk of becoming a tax resident in those countries. 

Universities Using Voyage Manager


The University of Glasgow and the Unversity of Aberdeen are two of the academic institutions using the Voyage Manager platform. Both universities use active tracking to ensure that their international officers' trips are progressing to plan and that they are safe during their trips.
