    • Option A: Request an increase to your Travel Card limit with your Account or Business Manager in the Business Office.
    • Option B: Work with your Department Business Office to obtain its credit card number with a high dollar limit to be used for the bookings and provide immediate receipts and confirmations to the Business Office upon confirmation of booking(s).
