UR-American Express Corporate Card
A University traveler who travels on University business should apply for a UR-American Express Corporate Card. The traveler is free to use the UR-AMEXCO card in making travel arrangements through the University's contracted travel agencies (see University Finance Department web site: University Travel and Conference Policies), which offers UR travelers discounted airfares and special hotel discount booking advantages. Through use of the UR-Amexco card, the traveler can avoid carrying large amounts of cash, and is protected under the UR-Amexco card travel insurance policy (see University Finance Department web site: University Travel and Conference Policies).
