This web portal enables SU employees to search for flights, hotels, and rental cars with the added benefit of being able to create your own user profile and store credit card information.

    In addition, the corporate account allows users to:

    • Check Southwest Airlines for airfare
    • Instantly check flight status
    • Get airport information and parking reservations
    • Check the weather in the city you are traveling to
    • Look up maps of the area
    • Get specific information on passports and visas needed for international travel
    • Convert currency

    To create a user account please send an email to Dawn Madore with the following information:

    • Your name
    • University Budget to associate with the account
    • If you will arrange travel for someone, please note who those individuals are
    • If someone will arrange travel for you, please note who those individuals are

    Within 2 business days you will receive an email with your Egencia user name and password.

    Please note that at this time, Egencia does not bill SU for business travel. A credit card must be used to make reservations. Department ProCards cannot be used.
