Domestic travel is defined as travel within the lower 48 U.S. states, also known as CONUS, or continental United States.
The UC Davis Travel card is the preferred method of payment for all travel related expenses (i.e., conference/training registration, transportation, lodging, meals & incidentals, etc.). Please apply for the UC Davis Travel card if you do not already have one.
Transportation expenses should be reimbursed for the most economical mode of travel, on the most commonly traveled route, consistent with the authorized business purpose of the trip.
- Lodging expenses must be those that are necessary to accomplish the official business purpose of the trip.
Meals & Incidentals (M&IE):
- M&IE are those that fall into neither the transportation nor subsistence categories but are necessary to accomplish the official business purpose of the trip.
