Buying Airfare

AggieTravel's travel reservation tool interfaces directly with BCD Travel. This is the recommended tool for making airline reservations.

For step by step instructions to purchase airfare using AggieTravel, visit Travel Reservations.

Another option for making travel reservations is to use Connexxus, an online travel booking portal developed for UC travelers to plan and book their travel. Connexxus offers Central Travel System (CTS) for direct billing, reducing out of pocket expenses and providing convenient, flexible options for making reservations online or through a full service travel agent. Connexxus also allows UC to capture all UC travel expenditures and provides discount rates for airfare, hotel accommodations and car rentals.

Connexxus is accessed through the Company Notes section of AggieTravel.

Procedures for purchasing non-employees airfare are available below and further explained on the Non-Employee Making Reservations page. You can search for both refundable & non-refundable fares in AggieTravel and with other participating travel agencies available through Connexxus.

All airfare charges must be reconciled in AggieTravel within 45 days of the trip end date.


Buy Airfare with the CTS

The Central Travel System (CTS) is a direct bill program available to UCD travelers. Travelers using the CTS billing option need a valid 4-character billing ID or a complete chart/accout input in their Expense Information screen in their AggieTravel Profile. 

Guest or Student Travelers:

To purchase tickets using AggieTravel for guest or student (non-employee) travelers, a non-employee profile and a traveler ID is required (see Non-Employee Travelers for details).

All airfare charges must be reconciled in AggieTravel within 45 days of the trip end date.
