No-Cost Travel

Domestic or international travel conducted on University time but at no cost to the University is considered no-cost travel. If a third party is paying for travel, those expenses are not eligible for reimbursement through Purdue.

Although Purdue is not funding the trip, no-cost travel is still considered business travel and must be properly recorded and documented in Concur before the traveler leaves. Documentation prior to the trip assures that the traveler's supervisor and/or department head is aware of the activity, traveler is covered under worker’s compensation insurance, and that the traveler can be located in the event of a medical/emergency incident.
