Welcome to Travel Services!
Travel Services is pleased to announce its partnership with CORPORATE TRAVEL PLANNERS, INC (CTP), as its new travel management company. Having many years of extensive higher education experience, CTP is very familiar with the idiosyncratic characteristics of a research university and is committed to exceeding our expectations.
Southwest Discount Program
Travel Services is also excited to announce our new Southwest Discount Program. Southwest Airlines has offered Caltech a 5% savings on tickets issued to or from Los Angeles, Burbank, Ontario or John Wayne /Orange County airports. These savings are for any travel dates that are booked beginning December 15th, 2015 through June 30, 2016. If you use the Concur Online Booking tool to book travel in CardQuest, you will see Southwest Airlines as a preferred vendor with the savings automatically shown. If you utilize CTP’s (Corporate Travel Planners) full service agent, the savings will also be applied.
