It is recommended that employees use the Concur Travel and Expense system to make airline reservations. The Concur Travel and Expense system works directly with World Travel. Fares booked online using Concur incur an $11 booking fee versus a $36 fee when a travel agent is contacted directly. Airfare can also be booked directly with any of the other University approved travel agencies. Charges will vary by agency.
Traveling by air is limited to the lowest price economy class whenever a single flight is less than 6 hours. The University will reimburse business class fares only when a single flight is longer than 6 hours. Business class fares may not be charged to grants and contracts and must adhere to the Fly America Act when appropriate.
Non-Temple Agency Airline Ticket Reimbursement Requests
Travelers requesting reimbursement for airline tickets purchased outside of Concur or an approved travel agency must complete the Airline and Local Hotel Travel Policy Exception form. This form along with supporting documentation (i.e. receipt for airfare, quote from approved agency) should be submitted as an attachment with your expense reimbursement request. Accounts Payable will review the exception form when processing your expense report for payment.
