Prepaid airfare reservations can be acquired through Horizons Travel 325-658-2436. Please be sure that the flight information given to Horizon’s Travel is your final itinerary. The Travel Office will only provide authorization of payment to Horizon’s and will not make changes to the itinerary given by the traveler.
If you are wanting your airfare to be prepaid on the Business Travel Account (BTA), please be sure to check the appropriate prepaid service on the TAR (TAR’s that are not filled out correctly run the risk of services not being booked). Upon approval, the TAR is emailed to the office coordinator and/or the traveler. Upon receipt, it is the department’s responsibility to book the air fare with Horizons.
Please use the quote provided to complete your Travel Authorization Request Form, and submit the form as soon as possible to avoid drastic rate changes.
Note: The Travel Office will not authorize payment to Horizons until your approved Travel Authorization Request Form is received with all required supporting documentation.
***If you prefer to get a quote and book your travel independently, please keep in mind that when using travel broker sites (i.e., Expedia, Hotwire, Orbitz, Travelocity), the agencies may not provide receipts that meet State of Texas guidelines for reimbursement, and certain fees are applied that may not be reimbursable.
Please remember that airfare rates are set by the airlines and are subject to change at any time.
