Designated Travel Agencies

DTA Benefits

Substantial cost savings accrue to the University when travelers make their bookings through Designated Travel Agencies. Reports verifying lowest available fares are made accessible for analysis by Travel Management Services.

Departments can find arranging travel, especially for groups, less complicated when utilizing Designated Travel Agencies, who handle all booking for the department.

Booking through a Designated Travel Agency also assists the University in obtaining cost savings through the use of preferred carriers and reduces the individual's out-of-pocket expenses for business travel. The Designated Travel Agencies with which Indiana University works all serve as well-established businesses in their respective local communities.

  • Department code and IU Employee # for employee travel
  • For nonemployee travel, the IU Employee ID number of the individual making the reservation is required
  • Traveler's name as it appears on their government issued ID (such as a drivers license)
