How to book a trip
This is how you book a business trip.
Rail travel in Europe
It will now be easier for Lund University staff to travel by train in Europe. This means that we can further reduce the climate impact of our business travel. As of 1 June 2023, all rail travel abroad is to be booked through the Danish rail travel agency, Togrejse, via the link to a form, which can be found in Lupin/Proceedo. However, all air travel, airport transfers, rail travel connected with air travel and domestic rail travel are booked as previously via BCD Travel.
New agreement for travel agency services
Lund University has procured a new agreement for travel agency services. From 1 February 2023 onwards, the new supplier will be BCD Travel Sweden AB.
Bookings could be made with Egencia up to and including the last day of January. After that, Egencia will only deal with bookings that have been made before the end of the agreement.
All business travel is to be booked through the travel agency with which Lund University has an agreement; from 1 February 2023 onwards, this is BCD Travel Sweden AB. This applies to all travel paid for by Lund University (for staff and persons travelling at the request of the University). Only staff are authorised to book trips under this agreement.

- Is the price especially important? Be sure to specify this when speaking with the travel agent.
- Be prepared when contacting the travel agency: Where are you going? When? Changes?
- Include as much as possible: hotel, connecting trains, buses, air taxis, etc.
- It is important to clearly state if you would like the travel agent to make a preliminary booking or a definitive booking.
- Remember to confirm the booking.
- When you receive your booking confirmation, it is important you check that all the information is correct.
Several travellers travelling together?
Carefully consider whether several key people, e.g. the entire departmental board, should travel on the same flight or bus, in case something were to happen.
Using the telephone while travelling
For travel abroad, see the terms and conditions for your mobile contract as well as roaming rates for calls and data.
Information regarding the coronavirus/Covid-19
When an employee has been given approval for a business trip to a country where a travel certificate confirming a completed PCR and/or antigen test for Covid-19 is required for entry, the employer is to cover any costs for testing/obtaining the travel certificate. Any costs for sample collections are to be allocated to the local cost centre. Reimbursement for a PCR and/or antigen test for Covid-19 is only paid if the testing is required in connection with a business trip.
The information, available in English, is updated around the clock, in the self-service booking system, Cytric.
