Travel Only P-Cards

With the implementation of Concur, several departments are considering ordering cards for their faculty and staff. We have several options with these cards, but the most popular is a “Travel Only” card. This type of card can only be used with vendors that have a travel merchant category code associated with their business. Airfare, lodging, taxis/uber, shuttle services, baggage fees and most parking garages have travel MCCs. Examples of travel costs typically declined due to this restriction would be conference registration fees and parking charges with vendors who do not have a travel MCC. This “Travel Only” restriction can be lifted with an email from the cardholder’s Supervisory Approver or Budgetary Approver. These requests, along with any other questions concerning this topic, should be emailed to P-Card Services at pcard@fa.ua.edu.
