29.2.3 Combined Personal & Business Travel

When personal travel is combined with business travel, the employee will be reimbursed for only the business travel portion at the lowest available fare. In some cases, the costs of a business travel can be significantly reduced by an extension of a day or two. When such extensions are used for personal purposes, this must be indicated in the travel request. Use of paid leave during a business travel must be clearly indicated in travel request, which should be approved by Supervisor in advance. If a travel itinerary is created to accommodate personal travel, the traveler must pay the incremental cost of personal travel compared with the same itinerary for the business purpose only. In such a case, the traveler should prepare documents with costs for the University’s business separating personal expenses.
