University travelers should book all travel arrangements, including transportation, lodging, and car rental, through Corporate Travel Planners (CTP), Fordham’s designated travel service agency. Corporate Travel Planners has configured Fordham’s travel policy in their call-in and online systems. Travelers will be notified if the booking is out of compliance with the University travel policy.
Booking Travel with CTP can be done by calling an agent directly or by using FINTREX, powered by Concur's Online Booking tool. FINTREX provides access to the same transportation and hotel marketplace as other online services and in some cases with better rates by using the CTP-sponsored discounts. The traveler can also contact CTP to address issues with their online reservations or while traveling.
To book travel online, you must first review and update your travel profile. You must complete the following required fields:
1. Please make certain that your first, middle, and last names are identical to those on the photo identification that you will be presenting at the airport. Due to increased airport security, you may be turned away at the gate if the name on your identification does not match the name on your ticket.
- If your name does NOT match, email [email protected]
2. Work OR Home Phone number
- Travelers should enter mobile number so they may be contacted by Agents when traveling
- Travel Assistants/Arrangers should enter office phone number
4. Date of Birth
You will need a corporate or personal credit card to purchase the airline ticket or to reserve a hotel room or a car.
Once registered, book travel using the FINTREX.
When you call CTP, you will be asked to identify yourself as a Fordham employee and will be asked questions required to book travel. This process will be significantly more efficient if you complete your travel profile online. You can use a Fordham corporate or personal credit card to purchase the airline/rail ticket or reserve the hotel room or car rental.
To book travel directly by phone, call CTP at 844-863-8174.
To book travel using your smartphone or tablet, download the Concur Mobile App. You must first complete your profile to book via Mobile App. Please follow the profile completion instructions in the Booking Travel Online section.
