In keeping with the University’s desire to provide better service and more cost effective business travel options, La Verne has partnered with American Express Business Travel Services powered by Concur to allow an online travel booking process. This service allows faculty and staff to book travel via an interactive website using their program/department numbers or personal credit cards. The site features La Verne’s travel policies, preferred vendors, and special low rates and fares on air travel, hotels, and rental car reservations.
La Verne has chosen Concur, a self booking tool, as the primary means of making travel reservations. The service provides fully automated arrangements to simplify the booking process, real-time flight departure and arrival status display, email-based flight notification for departure and arrival status, trip templates to store frequently priced itineraries, last-minute travel bargains, travel resources and tips, and a worldwide American Express travel office locator. These services may be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any location.
