The person who has the right to decide on business travel is responsible for ensuring that these rules are followed and that employees traveling in the service know what applies to business travel.
     
  • Read more about Regulations for business travel.
     
  • Consider the environmental aspects when choosing a means of transport. When traveling under 500 km, train should always be considered. When traveling to Gothenburg, train should always your mode of transportation. Book the trip in economy class. Use public transport when applicable.
