Theft of cash from within University departments is covered subject to cash being stored securely and in accordance with Finance Division guidelines. Claims are subject to the standard £2,000 excess.
Carrying large amounts of cash outside the UK is discouraged. Some cash, in the region of £50, is acceptable to cover immediate expenses but the emphasis is on carrying either a University credit card or the traveller's own card (for later recompense).
The University does not provide insurance cover for University cash taken outside the UK. If, under exceptional circumstances, there are no safer alternatives, the Insurance Office may be able to make special arrangements for cover. This will be limited to £2,500 and a charge will be made to the department for this. Claims settlement is subject to a £250 excess. Cover will only be considered on the production of a detailed and approved risk assessment.
