Important Note on Travel Guard

Skidmore was notified in May 2019 that Travel Guard will be discontinuing their employee and student travel agency business, effective July 31, 2019. As such, the web portal (GetThere booking tool) and any new travel requests will no longer be available as of July 31, 2019. The toll-free and local numbers will be available until September 30, 2019 if needed to assist with changes to existing reservations. Skidmore is currently evaluating other travel agency services. We apologize for any inconvenience. Travel can also be booked directly with vendors.

 

Travel

The Purchasing Department can help you book your travel arrangements to take advantage of college discounts, special rates and other services. Through our association with various travel agencies, you can schedule business or personal travel—including your transportation, hotel, entertainment and travel insurance. The responsibility for travel accounting lies primarily with the Financial Services Office. On their site you will find links for the policies and documentation you will need on your trip: travel expenses, what items are authorized for reimbursement, and availability/use of Skidmore Business Visa cards.
