Dear Business Travelers and Arrangers,
Great news! You said you wanted a user-friendly and familiar online booking tool. We heard you. The UC Travel Center is excited to announce the launch of a new online booking tool, Concur.
Concur continues to be the preferred method for most business travelers and arrangers like you because of its ease of use and convenience. With a few clicks, you can make simple travel arrangements for air, hotel and car rental.
As a UC Travel Center client, you will have access to a robust website for online bookings and support, as well as our experienced team of travel consultants for agent-assisted booking and traveler support, which will improve your travel experience.

- A customized system which includes built-in controls to guide campus users
- Concur Mobile App, a simple, secure tool that lets you manage your travel today (and expense in the near future) right from your smartphone
- Automatic Travel Insurance Registration
- Real-time access to all available flights and fares through a single online resource for booking airfare, lodging and rental car in the same reservation
