UW System is still on track for the July 1 switch to new travel vendors. Travel Inc. will handle individual travel. Fox World Travel will book group block travel. Here’s the latest on the travel management changes:
- UW System is working with airline and travel agency vendors to determine the most seamless and cost-effective solution for unused travel tickets because of COVID-19 travel restrictions. Watch for more information on how those will be handled.
- UW System will release minor policy changes, called “travel policy lite,” this summer covering items like receipt requirements, lodging options and prepayment, passport expensing, and more.
- The new UW TravelWIse website was recently launched: wisconsin.edu/travel. Become familiar with the new navigation and where to find travel resources. The new features include a travel comparison tool that compares car rental costs vs. mileage and a remade lodging and meal per diem calculator.
You can learn more about UW System’s improvements in travel services on the UW TravelWIse project update website. Remember to contact your CALS travel change representatives with any questions:
