Using the Travel Card for Online Transactions

Learn how you can use the UC San Diego Travel Card online to obtain business travel services.

Before you use the Travel Card for travel expenses, you must have a travel trip number (preauthorization requirement). Learn about card management, including your responsibility for timely payment. 

Online transactions: You can use the chip-enabled Travel Card online to obtain airfare, rent a car, reserve a hotel, and pay for conference registration:

  • Indicate the form of payment as Visa; otherwise, charges may be declined.
  • Use a specific billing address: Use your own Travel Card account billing address for online transactions. However, if you have trouble, try using the UC San Diego billing address:
    • First line: 9500 Gilman Drive
    • Second line: M/C 0998
    • Third line: La Jolla, CA 92093

Reimbursement: Use the Travel Card prepayment option in MyTravel to generate a payment to the traveler's Travel Card. After the trip concludes request reimbursement using MyTravel online. For additional information regarding prepayments, see Travel FAQ.
