Combined Business and Personal Time
When combining personal pursuits with business on a trip, indicate the dates (and location, if alternate destination routing) of the personal time on the Travel Authorization. In cases where this can be arranged, it is understood that the employee will be responsible for the additional costs incurred as a result of the alternate site routing and notation must be made on the Travel Authorization of that cost. Reimbursement of expenses on those dates is NOT allowable. To determine the additional cost of alternate site routing, the traveler must provide a quotation of the cost of round-trip airfare directly to and from the business destination. Quotations must be from the same source on the same day that travel is booked. (e.g., travel agency, internet website) The difference between the cost of the round-trip airfare including the alternate site routing versus the cost of the round-trip airfare directly to and from the business destination constitutes the additional cost of alternate site routing.
