Booking Fees

The booking fees for the Concur online booking tool and Cal TravelStore reservations have increased effective April 5, 2015. The new rates are as follows:

Service/Description Online Transaction Fee Agent Assisted Fee
Air/Rail/Car/Hotel Reservation* $7.00 $12.00
Hotel and/or Car Only Reservation $5.00 $12.00
After hours (per call) N/A $16.00

 *Flat fee for booking any combination of domestic or international air, rail, car and hotel.

No online transaction fees for changes, voids, cancellations, or exchanges; however, if an online transaction requires agent intervention for post-ticketing changes, the original online transaction fee will be adjusted to an agent-assisted transaction fee, not a total of both fees.

After-hours calls that result in a new reservation will only be charged the after-hours fee. Travelers will not incur both a transaction fee and an after-hours fee.
