Travel Tips

  1. Save money by using Orbitz for Business.
  2. Update your travel profile with preferences, frequent flyer number, etc. to streamline the booking process.
  3. To expand flight and fare options, use as wide a range of travel dates and times as possible.
  4. Consider alternative airports (for both departure and destination) within reasonable driving time to take advantage of lower fares.
  5. Save travel receipts and submit as soon as possible using the Reimbursement Form available in NUFinancials on the NU Portal.
  6. When charging a chart string, make sure the account field is open and funded. (Note: Typically, for airfare use 76765 for domestic and 76770 for international, and for hotels use 76766 for domestic and 76771 for international.)
  7. Review Northwestern's Travel Policy and Procedures (PDF).
  8. Purchase collision and loss damage waiver insurance coverage only when renting cars internationally.
  9. Check your itinerary for your flights’ minimum check-in times.
