Improvements in Yale Travel

There are a number of recent improvements to travel services at Yale.  Orbitz for Business is available to all Yale travelers who use a credit card to book travel.  It provides a simple, cost-effective way to travel, and offers travelers the option of booking on-line or using Orbitz’s full-service travel agency.  Service fees for booking on-line through Orbitz will be waived for those traveling on Yale business, which is a significant savings compared to booking through other travel agencies. (Note: If you’re traveling for leisure, Orbitz for Business will direct you to its leisure site, and you will pay service fees as described on the site).

In addition, IBM Global Services has been working with the University to negotiate competitive rates on airline fares, ground transportation and hotel accommodations.  Please visit http://www.yale.edu/travel for more information on these discounts, which include:

* Discounted rates for those staying in Club Quarters in select cities
* Discounted car rental rates and free membership in the Hertz #1 Club Gold
* New contract rates for car services with Hy’s and East Coast Limo
* Discounts and Yale upgrades for Amtrak tickets, which may be booked through an Orbitz agent at no charge

You may begin by clicking on the link http://www.orbitzforbusiness.com and using the password: travel.  If you’ve already registered on Orbitz, use your current password.  You will need to log in through your yale.edu address to be recognized as a Yale traveler and have the service fee waived.
