All Mobile Devices - International use when travelling abroad

Please note that all Mobile users must buy a data roaming bundle if they wish to use their phone for connecting to the Internet while abroad. This is to avoid extremely high data charges which are incurred by users by using their devices abroad at the standard data roaming rates. 

Contact if you wish to have a bundle activated. Please allow a minimum of 5 working days for your request to be processed.

It is the responsibility of the user to control the status of data used abroad as EE do not provide any alerts to notify the account holders when they reach the bundle limit and the user becomes then liable for any extra charges.

Therefore we strongly recommend that you use your device via the Wi-Fi mode whenever possible and only switch to network broadband when absolutely necessary.

Vehicle Hire

A new inter-regional agreement for short-term vehicle hire was put in place by the English North West and North East Universities Purchasing Consortia and adopted as best value for money for the Scottish HE/FE sector by APUC in Nov 2012.   



It is absolutely essential that adequate insurance cover be taken out in respect of all vehicle hires.  As a general rule, it is recommended that cover s be purchased from the hiring company for all short-term hires i.e. up to 14 days.  Where a car is being hired for a longer period, it may be more economical to ask the Finance Office (Accounts Section) to add the vehicle temporarily to the University's Vehicle Insurance Policy.  All hiring company insurance policies carry an excess amount  and any damage incurred during the period of the hire will result in a charge to the department.  This is unlikely to be less than £100 and could be considerably more. There are also age restrictions on all drivers - usually 21 years.

Driving Licences:

Where a vehicle is being hired for the first time, the company will require sight of the driver(s) license(s) prior to release of the vehicle. This will not normally be necessary on repeat hires unless a different driver is involved and/or a previous driver has incurred Penalty Points for motoring offences. IMPORTANT: it is the legal responsibility of the driver to ensure that the hiring company is informed of any Penalty Points and/or changes to his/her licence. There is also a responsibility for the individual to inform their Head of Department and the Finance Office.

Important Update 08/06/15

Changes to the UK Driving Licence will be introduced on the 8th June 2015; as a consequence, drivers are required to provide additional detail to Car Hire providers when arranging this service provision.  Further information on these changes can be found on the DVLA website ::

Enterprise have confirmed they will not be introducing driver checks for the first 3 months and only require the photo part of the licence to support car hire.   

Arnold Clark require the check-code or licence summary from the 8th June 2015-  full co-operation is required from any Driver requiring Arnold Clark Insurance. Please remember, if you are booking in advance, the driver will need to ensure that they supply Arnold Clark with a valid pass code i.e. a pass code initiated less than 72 hours prior to the start of the hire.

Inspection of Vehicles:

The paperwork delivered with each vehicle includes a condition diagram or checklist and this should identify all known damage. It is however recommended that the driver performs a thorough check as soon as possible after delivery. Any damage not appearing on the Report should be notified in writing to the company prior to finally accepting the hire.

Pricing and other information: The suppliers are as follows:

Arnold Clark - Account Number 9910288

Enterprise - or Iain.d./

Thrifty -

Purchase orders should be raised in FMS for all vehicle hire.
