Priced itineraries are always required as receipts for airfare. Each administrative area may have internal procedures affecting travel arrangement and reimbursement. Before booking travel, please ensure you follow established guidelines and procedures in your area as well as University Travel Polices.

Payment and Reimbursement

Airline tickets are direct-billed to the University either with the traveler or department’s Purchasing Card.

Travelers must submit the original passenger’s receipt from the airline ticket with a Checklist for ERS Travel upon returning from the trip. If an IBIS Special Request for Check (SRFC) is used for travel expense reimbursement, it must be submitted within five days after completion of the trip.


Airline tickets purchased on the Purchasing Card include $200,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage, including hearing, sight, and speech loss and worldwide message, medical, legal, ticket replacement, lost luggage, emergency translation, and prescription assistance.
