  • Use TravelUVA's online booking tool whenever possible! It is UVAFinance's preferred method of booking Travel.
  • Read over the Travel Guidelines and Policies before booking a trip.
  • Do have your trip approved by your supervisor. Don’t just assume it is fine for you to go, departments budgets must be considered.
  • Do take your Travel & Expense card on the trip with you.
  • Do know the Do’s and Don’ts for using your T & E card properly.  Be responsible.
  • Do once you return reconcile your charges for your T& E card within 10 business days of your trip. Keep all business receipts.


  • Try to book travel alone. If you are having trouble, confused, or it is your first time booking travel through TravelUVA please contact someone on the Travel & Expense Team or a Travel Ambassador for help!
  • Don’t wait until the last minute to book a trip – Be prepared
  • Don’t try to reconcile a transaction without a bank of America transaction amount and an authorized receipt –the system will send you an error message if you attempt to do this but be aware.
