Airline travel through Global Travel

  • The process of requesting your Spend Authorization (SA) is still the same and an approved SA must be acquired before booking your ticket via the below steps. Once the charges have been posted to our travel credit card, your ticket will be charged to the budget that is listed on your approved SA for the trip.
  • To book airline travel, go to, click the ‘Corporate’ tab and select Corporate Travel Request. This is the preferred way for booking to allow for quicker response.
  • To make booking travel quicker, please go to, click the ‘Corporate’ tab on and select Business Traveler Profile. Fill in the requested information and hit submit (you only have to do this step once). Your information will also be automatically saved to a profile and will pull up each time you need to book.

Motor Pool vs. Personal Vehicle Usage

BPPM 95.11—Normally, the use of a privately-owned motor vehicle is based upon University-related requirements rather than the personal preference or convenience of the traveler.

A WSU traveler may use a privately-owned motor vehicle for official University travel when:

  • A Motor Pool vehicle is not available.
  • It is more advantageous or economical to the University to use a privately-owned vehicle than a Motor Pool vehicle as determined by the approving administrator.
