The Princeton Travel & Expense Program

The goal of the Princeton Travel Program is to provide safety, service, and savings to University travelers. The program is designed to:

  • Ensure the safety and well-being of the University’s faculty, staff, and students while traveling
  • Deliver exceptional travel-related services
  • Reduce travel costs

The Princeton Expense Program provides expense reporting support and seamless reconciliation of travel and other business expenses.

Together, the T&E program offers a suite of tools and services including Concur, an online travel booking and expense management tool; a dedicated team of Princeton travel agents at World Travel, who are accessible 24/7; convenient mobile apps; and the University's credit card programs. 


To help you manage your group travel in 2022, we are offering a brief presentation for departments, organizations, and programs that are resuming group travel.

Learn more about "Group Travel in the New Normal" including how to schedule this presentation for your department.

Reservations for University faculty, staff, students, and guests should be booked through Concur, the University’s on-line booking tool, or through our designated travel management company, World Travel Inc. The University’s negotiated rates, car rental insurance coverage, and other benefits are only available by booking via one of these methods.

In the wake of a judge's ruling on Monday, April 18th that struck down the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's transit masking rules, major U.S. airlines have made mask-wearing optional for both passengers and employees.
