Travel Agencies

We're pleased to offer two travel agencies, Travel Guard-Chartis and AAA Northway, for your Skidmore travel or personal travel needs. GetThere is an online booking tool offered by Marathon Travel for those who prefer to make their arrangements online.

Travel Guard-Chartis

Travel Guard-Chartis is a specialist in collegiate, international and group bookings. They are our only 24/7 agency, offering a wide range of value-added travel services, including 24-hour travel assistance services, emergency travel services, medical assistance, concierge service, roadside assistance, online booking engine, travel insurance and a low-fare promise.

Travel Guard-Chartis offers both an agent ($25 per ticket fee) and an online booking tool – GetThere ($10 per ticket fee). Please contact Carol Schnitzer (ext. 5849) if you have any questions or need assistance.

We have no specific agent with Travel Guard-Chartis; all calls to our dedicated Skidmore 866 number (see below) are answered by an agent ready to help you. You will never get voicemail, always an agent with a friendly "Thank you for calling the Skidmore College Travel Desk..."

For your business related bookings, please either have your own credit card or the Skidmore account number to charge your ticket to. Travel Guard-Chartis has a Skidmore P-Card.
