Booking Travel

Boston University Sourcing and Procurement make every effort to secure the cheapest airfare, car rental and accommodation prices as possible. All Boston University vendor discounts are accessible by Shorts agents in addition to being loaded into the online booking tool Concur Travel to ensure the best possible pricing for all BU Travelers. For more Boston University negotiated discounts please visit the local hotel discounts  page.

Using the Concur booking tool will help you secure the lowest prices as well as prepopulate your expenses and itineraries in the Concur expense tool, significantly decreasing the time spent preparing your expense reports.

If you are new to booking travel please refer to this step by step illustrated document, which will walk you through logging in to Concur and using the online tool. You can also visit the Training section of our website located under the Resources tab for other Concur training materials on common tasks.  Those who prefer to speak directly with an agent may call Shorts at 617-353-1700, or email them directly at travelbooking@bu.edu.
