The UMass Corporate Travel Card provides many important features to employees who travel on University business. It facilitates payment of travel expenses and provides essential data to the University. In addition, it provides physical damage and theft car rental insurance at no cost and is the method to obtain cash for out-of-pocket travel expenses.
Individual Travel Cards
Full time and regular employees are eligible for UMass Corporate Travel Cards. Department authorization is required for temporary employees, graduate students, and post doctorates.
Department Travel Cards
UMass Foundation employees are eligible for Corporate Travel Cards with the approval of the UMass Amherst Foundation Director.
These cards should be used to pay for non- employee travel expenses only. Examples of non-employees are guest speakers, recruiting and searches, student travel and visiting lecturers.
The two exceptions to this policy are:
- The travel expenses for an employee can be charged to this account when the employee is taking non-employees on a trip.
- When an employee has had his/her application for an individual Citi Bank travel card denied you can charge transportation, lodging and conference registrations only for that employee to this card.
