New Preferred Travel Agency Announcement

DATE: 10/25/07

Tower Travel Management has been awarded a University preferred travel agency designation and their use is strongly encouraged.  Fees for Tower’s service are $5 for an online airline reservation; $15 for an air reservation issued with agent assistance and $20 for an air reservation booked using the Travel Direct Bill program.  Tickets issued through Tower will be eligible for all University-negotiated discounts. 

Tower’s online booking tool, Cliqbook, is now available at:
https://travel.uchicago.edu/onlinebooking/.

To begin booking, you will need to register at: http://app2.outtask.com/registration/register_form.asp?regcode=uchicago&host=www.uofc.edu

After registration is complete, please access Cliqbook directly.  The system will prompt you to complete a travel profile on your initial login.  Once submitted, you may begin to make reservations.

The current Travel Direct Bill (TDB) program is also available through Tower Travel Management.  Please familiarize yourself with the new profile forms at https://cps.uchicago.edu/uchicago/trav_directbill_broch.html.  TDB is only available for use on agent assisted reservations.  It is not accessible through Cliqbook. 

More information about Tower Travel is available at their contract announcement at: http://adminet.uchicago.edu/adminres/arcontents/proc_serv/hotels/towertravel.shtml.
