University business travelers can realize negotiated discounts on published airfare when tickets are issued directly with the university’s contracted travel agencies.
- Book Individual Business Travel airfare with the university’s contracted supplier (Corporate Travel Planers) via online booking tool or agent assist.
- Book Group Business Travel airfare with the university’s group contracted supplier (STA Travel) with the submission of a Group Travel Request Form.
Using one of the carriers listed below through the university’s contracted agency not only ensures discount on the fare purchase, but as the university’s spend with these carriers increases in volume, the university can leverage more substantial discounts in the future.
- Local (Columbus area) hotels may offer discounted rates for university business-related travel. See Contract Book for options.
- When making reservations inquire about educational institution or government rates (if applicable to the hotel franchise). Be sure to check with the hotel before departure to ensure the OSU ID is acceptable form of government ID for check-in.
