New travel agency available September 20 for faculty, staff and students traveling for business at the University

Beginning September 20, all Purdue faculty, staff, students and others traveling on business to the University and needing assistance with booking arrangements will need to go through AAA Corporate Travel. The University’s current contract with Anthony Travel is ending. Concur is the University’s preferred way to book travel, and AAA Corporate Travel will be the agency if travelers wish to speak with a live agent. On an exceptional basis, Athletics will continue to partner with Anthony Travel for their travel needs.

If travel arrangements cannot be managed through Concur, faculty, staff and students should use and submit the AAA Corporate Travel Purdue Employee Travel Reservation form. A AAA Corporate Travel agent will then contact you to finalize the reservation within 72 hours of submission. Reservations required for employee and student travel within 72 hours must be made by calling AAA Corporate Travel at 800-354-4514.

Purdue Travel will continue to cover travel agency transaction fees for faculty, staff and students at the West Lafayette, Fort Wayne and Northwest campuses for college business travel booked through AAA Corporate Travel.

As previously announced, the change went into effect September 1 for non-employees, including prospective faculty and staff, visiting faculty and consultants, and student organizations. Effective September 20, all departments and organizations will be responsible for transaction fees for all non-employee travel.

Those at Purdue Global and Purdue Polytechnic high schools, as well as non-employees and student organizations at all Purdue campuses, will be eligible for Purdue’s negotiated rates and discounts for travel arrangements booked through AAA Corporate Travel.

Questions regarding this change should be directed to Purdue Travel at 765-494-7354 or [email protected]
