Princeton Travel & Expense Card

Image of Visa card.If you travel or incur out-of-pocket expenses while conducting University business, you may be a candidate for a Travel and Expense Card. The Travel and Expense Card application is available on the Finance & Treasury website.

When you use your Travel and Expense Card, your charges are automatically uploaded to Concur and are ready to be substantiated on an expense report. Using your Travel and Expense Card reduces the manual process required to request reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenditures.

Receipts for Your Expenses

Receipts are required for expenses of $50 or more. Use the Concur mobile app to take pictures of your receipts, email them to receipts@concur.com, or scan and upload images to your Concur receipt gallery. Receipts for expenses less than $50 should not be submitted.
