Sign Up for Travel Open Houses and Webinars
UW System is hosting a series of open houses as well as webinars in anticipation of our July 1, 2020 travel agency transition .
You may register for these open houses on the UW TravelWIse website. Options include:
  • General Travel Open House (hosted by UW System Admin Travel) – review of changes as well as time for open Q&A. We will also be touching on unused tickets and the process moving forward.
  • Travel Incorporated Overview (hosted by Travel Inc.)
  • Administrative Group Overview (hosted by Travel Inc.)
  • Administrative groups are used when a departmental card is to be on file with the travel agency for guests to book under. Popular uses include candidate travel, student travel, guest/speaker travel. With Travel Inc, non-profiled guests will not be able to call in and book with the agency unless part of an administrative group.
