UNIVERSITY TRAVEL CARD

 

The Travel Card (Travel Card Overview), issued by American Express, provides State employees who travel regularly on State business an alternative to using personal credit cards, personal funds, or cash advances from the Agency or University. Employees can use the card for airline tickets, rental cars and associated fuel costs, ground transportation (e.g. airport shuttles), lodging, and meals. The employee receives reimbursement for expenses through normal travel reimbursement procedures and makes payment directly to American Express by due date. The State of Georgia does not incur any liability associated with the use of the card.  Any fees incurred by the cardholder are the responsibility of the cardholder.
