Did you Cancel a Trip due to COVID-19? Take Inventory of Unused Airline Tickets

Did you have to cancel an airline reservation, or are you unsure if you received a future flight credit or refund? If you booked your trip with our Onsite Agency, we can help you with this information. Simply send them an email describing your situation. NOTE: If you booked through another source, you will need to contact them directly for help.

Before you purchase a new ticket, check to see if you or someone in your department has an unused ticket credit for a previously canceled trip to apply towards the new reservations. many airlines are allowing name changes on credits.

Update Travel Documents, Passports, etc.

Make sure you have your current government-issued ID, Drivers License, and/or Passport up-to-date.
