Announcing New Travel Service Provider for University Travel
After a year-long customer service review, including extensive feedback from the University community, Georgetown Travel Services (GTS) is transitioning to a new managed travel service provider. GTS is pleased to announce this new partnership with Corporate Travel Partners (CTP) effective Wednesday, July 1, 2020. CTP specializes in higher education travel and better understands our needs at the institutional and individual level.
As we transition to this new provider, the travel moratorium for faculty and staff remains in place until further notice. When travel resumes, any university-sponsored travel must be booked through Georgetown Travel Services. The service mitigates risk for trip changes or cancellations and also ensures the university is able to provide emergency assistance to its employees and students who are traveling on university business.
On July 1, the GTS website will be updated with the most current information on how to book and manage your travel, along with transition related FAQs and training information. If you have authorization to travel during the existing moratorium, details on how to speak to an agent directly in order to book travel will be posted on our website.
Our new partnership with CTP will provide our travelers with exceptional customer service and enhanced security while ensuring that each itinerary takes full advantage of all university negotiated discounts with our partner airlines, hotels and rental car companies. Georgetown Travel Services is excited to have CTP as our partner, and both CTP and GTS look forward to working with you on all of your travel needs.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this transition, please do not hesitate to contact our Travel Manager, Sheyna Arthur, at firstname.lastname@example.org (new window).
