University Travel

The University's travel management company is FCM Travel.  All University funded travel must be booked directly with them or through their online booking tool - SAVI.

Travel Management

Some areas have travel arrangers who assist with booking travel, others are self service, and there maybe different arrangements if you are a student. Ask your Line Manager / Supervisor and direct any questions to them in the first instance.

Travel Approval

Domestic Travel

Pre-trip approval by way of a travel requisition is not required, however travellers must notify and seek approval from their Line Manager. Travel can be booked using the University's Online Booking Tool - SAVI or by contacting the Faculty Travel Team / Arranger.

International Travel

Pre-trip approval is required by way of a travel requisition in Fraedom (refer QRG). Travel requisitions are work-flowed to the Head of School / Branch Head for approval. Additional approval is required for travel to high risk destinations.

High Risk Travel - travel to destinations designated by smartraveller.gov.au as ‘reconsider your need to travel’ or ‘do not travel’ are considered “high risk”.

Prior to making any travel plans, applicants must complete the Request for Approval to Travel to a High Risk Destination form and attach this to the travel requisition.
