Price match policy

Should there be an instance where one of the University approved TMC’s is not able to price-match your travel requirements, then please forward the following screenshots and information to CPU:

  1. Quotation from TMC
  2. Quotation from 3rd Party. (please note this excludes Meta searchers such as Skyscanner as they do not offer live price availability.

Upon receipt it is CPUs discretion whether to allow travellers to book their travel outside of the TMC Contract.  This will be decided on a case to case basis.  CPU will only allow bookings to be made outside of the TMC for one of the following reasons:

  1. The Travel Management Companies have been unable to beat or match the price
  2. Quotes are like for like (dates, destinations, times etc.)
  3. Difference in price is more than £35 (per person if group booking)
