Travel arrangements

We are here to help you plan and execute a successful trip. Below you’ll find resources to help guide you along the way.

How do I make travel arrangements?

  • For basic travel, use Concur, MIT’s online expense reporting and travel booking tool.
  • For complex travel (i.e., multiple cities/multiple legs), use MIT’s preferred travel vendor, The Travel Collaborative, 617-497-7400.
  • For MIT’s preferred airlines, hotels and accommodations, auto rental agencies, passport/visa services, and more, use the drop-down menu under Commodities on the Supplier Search page.

Please note that whether or not you book through MIT’s preferred travel vendors, MIT policy requires that you register all MIT academic or business travel in the MIT Travel Registry.

How do I rent a car abroad?

Travelers are strongly discouraged from renting vehicles in most international destinations because of the significant safety and security risks.

However, should you require the use of a vehicle, MIT has several rental car resources. Please note that you must purchase rental insurance, which is reimbursable.

How do I make purchases for/while traveling?

You may use your MIT Travel Card while booking travel arrangements and while abroad.
