9 How to use the T-Card at a Hotel If other items are to be charged during the stay such as meals, etc – upon check-in give the clerk a personal card for these items Lodging requires an itemized receipt Upon departure – review bill for accuracy If in state – make sure state taxes are not charged Single occupancy rate for hotels or indicate single/double rate the same Justification required if hotel room rate over $150 in state or out of state (excluding taxes)

10 What to look for on a hotel bill:

11 Using the T-Card for Airfare Purchase Coach class or cheaper Dont purchase airfare more than 90-days in advance Local travel agencies or internet travel service providers such as Delta.com or Orbitz may be used Double check the correct dates of travel are booked Travel Agency Service Fees & Checked Baggage Fees may be charged to the card (provide receipts) Trip Insurance is an optional feature and should not be charged to the card Purchase non-refundable tickets

12 Using the T-Card for Car Rental State Contract (Travel Website) Reserve car in advance at or (do not reserve with Orbitz, Travelocity, etc) Use Contract Provided – Avis AWD: A State contract rentals provide necessary insurance Compact car unless there is a valid justification for the upgrade Reserve only cars on the state contract – not Camaro Convertibles or SUVs

13 Other Car Rental Issues State policy says that Size nor stature of the traveler are not a valid, reimbursable justification for a larger class vehicle Fuel Service Options are not allowed (fill up the car before returning to AVIS) GPS is NOT reimbursable AVIS-toll pass use is NOT reimbursable Snow & Ice is not a valid, reimbursable justification for a larger class vehicle

14 AVIS/Wizard # WIZARD number available through AVIS – do not disclose to others –To apply contact Diana Dinkins at AVIS Easier to rent for individual traveling to University since this is direct billed to the University or for those travelers under the age of 25 Check for Tax on receipt if rented in Florida – we are tax exempt – Contact Dianna Dinkins to remove tax after the fact Fill-up car prior to return at AVIS – Can use T- card for this fuel

15 Using the T-Card for Conference Registration Fees Only pay for the Registration fee itself –If a membership fee is required, pay by another means (purchasing card, payment request, etc) Pay only 30-days prior to any early-bird deadline, regular registration deadline or the conference start date. Do NOT pay for t-shirts, tours, golf outings, banquets, memberships, etc.

16 Conference Registration

17 Do NOT use the T-card for Gas/Fuel in personal vehicles Copies or Printing Faxes Meals Memberships Commodity type purchases Any other type of charge not on the approved list

18 What is My Wallet An area in OMNI where T-card charges are placed each week for viewing and processing You can view your own charges and the charges of people you submit travel for

19 OK- Ive used the T-Card – Now What (Basic Steps) Review My Wallet for all cardholders Tuesday AM Be sure a T. Auth has been approved T. Auth must have valid benefit to The University Process an Expense Report Populate T-Card charge from My Wallet Fax Receipts attached to Expense Receipt Pages to Make sure all approvers approve by Thursday

20 Tips Tips Do not delete a line Only put T-card charges on the ER/no other charges Do not wait for the trip to end – process charge the week it downloads Be sure to reference the T. Auth number Cross-reference T-card ER numbers on regular ER for traveler

21 If I dont have receipts Take all measures to obtain the receipts A receipt should have been provided when the item was paid for Document why you dont have a receipt and when/if you will obtain one

24 How to check that the ER was processed correctly Before submitting the ER – SAVE for Later Check the My Wallet area – if the charges are still there they did not pull correctly –Delete the ER and start over –Save for Later, Check again and submit if items pulled –DO not delete any lines – if you have to delete a line – just start over and only select the lines you want to add

25 If ER already submitted Have the ER denied Delete ER Start a New ER and pull from My Wallet again Save for Later, Check again and submit if items pulled DO not delete any lines – if you have to delete a line – just start over and only select the lines you want to add

26 More on paying More on paying Why do we have to pay so fast? –To stay within the terms of the contract –Once you charge the card – the vendor is paid –We have to pay the bank that issued the T-card weekly Do you pay your credit card late? –Remember the T-card is a credit card with a weekly not a monthly due date. –We dont want to pay this card late either

27 OOPS – Ive charged something I shouldnt have OOPS – Ive charged something I shouldnt have Easiest course of action – Have the company charge your personal credit card and credit the T-Card. Process an Expense Report, for the charge, and indicate a credit has been issued for the expense. If that is not possible – write a check, made payable to FSU, for the item not allowed and send to Travel – if an approved expense then process an ER for it Best course of action – review what can/cant be purchased before using the T-Card Review receipt at time of purchase – make corrections then, not later

28 I Got a Credit – Now What Process an ER Pull the Credit amount from My Wallet to populate the ER Credits appear as negative amounts in My Wallet The total of the ER has to be either positive or negative – not zero

30 NOTES NOTES Always check the receipt Only use for listed items Check for taxes Check for the correct amount Check to make sure you are using the TRAVEL card for travel expenses not the commodity card Do not let others have your card Do not distribute copies of your card to others

33 Fax all receipts using the OMNI-provided receipts page to Never highlight information on the receipt; instead, circle, or draw an arrow, star, etc., to draw attention, without compromising any information on the receipt Do not tape over information on the receipt Do not reduce the receipts in size; the faxed page can be longer than the header page If you have trouble reading the receipt because its too light, photocopy to darken the receipt, then attach to header page If the receipt is on colored paper, photocopy onto white paper, then attach to header page and fax Learn how to use your fax machine…make sure you are placing the documents right-side-up for your machine so that blank pages are not sent Dos/Donts of faxing receipts Dos/Donts of faxing receipts
