Mobile Device Usage Guidelines For Travelling

Are you intending to travel and use your mobile device (aka smartphone, tablet or laptop)? Of course – these days you need to make a strong personal commitment not to do that!

But did you know that we have some very useful guidelines on travelling with mobile devices?

Mobile Device Usage Guidelines for UC Staff Who Travel

This webpage is intended to help staff maximise their usage of UC-issued mobile devices when travelling, while minimising costs to UC and avoiding unexpected and excessive expenses. It is a great guide for anyone travelling with their personal mobile devices too.


For more great time-saving tips, look up our Archive of Tech Tips.
The Technology Information for Staff website is a great go-to place for information too.

STA Travel returns with fantastic staff options

We’re pleased to welcome STA Travel back on campus, 7 years after losing the original store in the earthquake-damaged student union building.

The world’s leading student and youth travel company (with exclusive airfares and deals on offer), STA Travel also has exclusive teacher fares which extend to full time tutors and lecturers at UC.

A full-service travel agency, STA Travel can assist with the booking of flights, accommodation, day trips, tours and insurance and also specialises in cost-effective round the world flight combos, working holidays, volunteering and independent tailor-made travel.

Travel can be costly, especially if flying long-haul or with family, but STA Travel offers flexible payment options via FLEXIpay which means no interest, no credit cards and no catches, just a $99 deposit will secure today’s flight price, with the rest due 10 weeks before departure.  FLEXIpay is valid on a wide range of airlines, accommodation and touring across the globe.

Drop into the new STA Travel Canterbury University store located in the Undercroft, or email Emma and the team on canterburyuni@statravel.com, and ask about opening specials for your next overseas or domestic trip.
