Travelling To Fixtures
Northumbria Sport staff will book all the team coaches for the BUCS weekly fixtures for the teams that require them. For smaller teams, hire cars from our partners at Enterprise will be used, with a member of the team driving to and from fixtures. We will book these on behalf of the team, but there are a few things that you will need to complete in order to drive a University car:
You will need to register for a University drivers permit with your drivers license number, this will log all of your details so we can register you with Enterprise. It's a good idea to ensure that everyone on the team who holds a license fills out this form, we can register multiple drivers per car, so the driving can be shared. Follow the link below to apply for a permit:
If you are driving a University hired Enterprise car, Northumbria Sport will reimburse fuel up to a pre-agreed amount (please note that this has to have been built into your club travel budget, ask your Club Development Officer for more information). Only pre-authourised travel costs will be available to be claimed back from Northumbria.
The Student Expenses Form linked below will be how you claim back fuel. When submitting the expenses form, you will need to ensure that you insert your faculty as 'Campus Services' so Northumbria Sport can approve your request. Please note that evidence of expenditure will be required - so keep your receipts as supporting documents! Once completed, the link for submission is included at the top of the form. Please don't forget to add "100833" in the cost centre box at the bottom of the page too.
