Travel and Entertainment

Connexxus is the UC system-wide online travel portal used for arranging business-related travel for faculty, student field study, staff, and hosted guests. It is coupled with the Direct Bill ID system which allows for business related airfare to be directly charged to the University. All airfare, hotel reservations, and car rentals should be booked using Connexxus. By booking travel using Connexxus and Direct Bill the University gets significant volume discounts and travelling faculty and staff minimize their out of pocket costs or time until reimbursement.

Key Features

  • Securely stores a full traveler profile that manages all preferences (travelers should match the name shown in under Connexxus “My Profile” to government issued ID's for airport security).
  • Allows you to make travel arrangements either online or through an agent by phone.
  • Searches full airfare inventory, using a well-established, fully tested search engine.
  • Highlights and allows you to take advantage of all UC-negotiated discounts.
  • Automates Business and Travel Accident Insurance coverage at no cost for employees and students.
  • Has built-in reminders about compliance with UC travel policy. The Direct Bill System validates chart strings and posts charges to departmental ledgers efficiently. A valid, unique Direct Bill ID will be required to confirm each airline ticket paid for by UC Berkeley.
