Prior to Travel
Connexxus is a secure online booking tool that offers discounts and benefits that other popular travel web sites simply can't match. Used by the University of California, travelers take advantage of university-negotiated rates to save money on airfare, hotels and car rentals. So how can the travel program offer a better value than other travel sites? The answer is leverage. Since Connexxus handles the travel needs for the entire UC system, the program has tremendous buying power.
Airfare can be booked and paid for directly using Connexxus. Booking travel through Connexxus means that the traveler will not be out-of-pocket for airline expenses, as well as being directly enrolled in UC Travel Insurance which is required for any travel outside of the state of California. Connexxus can be found here: https://travel.ucop.edu/connexxus/
Business Travel Accident Insurance is required for out of state and overseas travel. If your travel is not booked through Connexxus, you MUST visit the following website and fill out the UC Away Business Travel form to receive full benefits of the University Business Travel Accident Insurance: https://www.ucop.edu/risk-services-travel/index.html
