Travel UVA

TravelUVA helps ensure a quality travel experience and provides emergency help should you ever need it
TravelUVA is a Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services project designed to improve the travel experience for the UVA community, increase safety, and reduce costs. TravelUVA has partnered with Christopherson Business Travel (CBT) to provide dedicated service to UVA travelers and those who support them in planning, booking, and managing travel. 
 

OUTCOMES

TravelUVA will provide an efficient, consistent, and integrated travel service for all UVA travelers (staff, faculty, and students).

This will be achieved by implementing:

  • Streamlined travel processes
  • Enhanced export controls compliance
  • Increased safety via 24/7 customer service, monitoring, and travel alerts
  • Improved pricing
  • Online and in-person travel booking services

This system is available for all travel that is paid or reimbursed with University Academic funds.

TravelUVA was launched January 4, 2016.  Current activities are centered on continuous improvement and increasing adoption rate.
