Things to Know

Hotel payment includes room and tax only. The traveler is responsible for providing a credit card upon check-in for all incidental charges, which may be submitted for reimbursement after the trip concludes.

Please allow 10 business days from the trip end date for the local hotel charge to show up in your Available Expenses in Concur.   If it has been more than 10 business days since the guest checked out and you still do not see the UCSD CTS Air Hotel Card expense in your Available Expenses, please send the folio (final receipt from the hotel) to Services & Support so we can research.  Be sure to use the Travel Booking category.  

The traveler is responsible for submitting the final hotel folio/receipt in the Expense Report regardless of the payment method.
