Travel Connections online travel booking system hosted by Get There

UCT has entered into an agreement with Get There the Online Travel Booking System supported by Travel Connections. The following are benefits to UCT of using the online booking system:

  • Significant reduction in transaction fees
  • Wider booking choices
    • Ease of use, being internet based
    • Visibility of all price options, including low- cost carriers and corporate flexible fares
  • A single booking process for flight, accommodation (including B&B’s), car rental and soon to be added (EZShuttle)
  • Streamlined Payments via PCard to avoid the complexity of SAP purchase orders
  • Loyalty benefits – these can still be attributed to the individual traveller, e.g. air miles
  • The replacement of costly and time-consuming staff reimbursements

To access the online booking tool, see link in the Links section. Enter your UCT network credentials to gain access to the website. You will however only be able to access the online booking tool if a profile has been created for you.

Payment for all travel bookings is by means of a PCard. A designated travel booker in a department can book on behalf of all travellers. This includes UCT staff who have PCards, those without PCards, students and visitors. When a PCard is used to make a travel booking it does not need to be presented when boarding the flight.

All travel bookers must therefore have their own PCards. If a traveller has their own PCard, they may do their own booking.

TripCase

In addition to the above benefits to UCT, the traveller benefits by the use of TripCase:

  • TripCase is a mobile travel application, used by millions of travellers globally. With TripCase Integration, trips booked in Get There are automatically imported to TripCase. 
  • TripCase gives travellers a single place to easily manage all the details of a trip. As changes occur to flight schedules, travellers are notified directly on their smartphone or wearable device. 
  • Where online check-in is completed on the airline’s website, the PDF Boarding pass copy can be sent to trips@tripcase.com. TripCase can add the boarding pass within the application.

Download the app from App store or Google Play and register with your business email address.

Making travel bookings

Get There should be used for all UCT domestic travel bookings including flights, accommodation, car rental and shuttle. The system allows for the above mentioned on a single booking and charges a single transaction fee.

International/regional travel

Get There may also be used for direct international/regional flights. However, for more complex flights, contact the Travel Connections travel desk to assist with your booking.

The Travel Connections travel desk will ensure appropriate connection times, compliance with visa requirements and other complex booking technicalities.
