Business Travel Insurance & Trip Planning
UC employees traveling on official University business are provided insurance coverage for a wide variety of accidents or incidents that may occur while you are away from your primary workplace. If your travel arrangements are made through Connexxus (UC’s travel reservation system), then your trip is automatically registered for this coverage. For business travel reservations made outside of Connexxus, the trip can be registered manually at the link below. Please note that you can register any trip for this program, but you are strongly encouraged to register any business travel that takes you out of state or out of the country.
Use the link above to register your trip with UC Away. From UC Away, you can print an insurance card that will give you access to UCs worldwide travel assistance program. You can also access the Worldcue Traveler website, where you can review a wealth of information about your destination(s), including briefings on security, health, and immunizations, as well as general travel tips to help you prepare for your trip.
Whether your trip is registered through Connexxus or UC Away, you will receive an e-mail from Worldcue Traveler / iJET with your insurance card and links to set up your traveler profile and provide your personal and emergency contact information to use while you are traveling. You need to take this additional step to set up your profile with Worldcue Traveler in order to receive alerts.

The University maintains contracts with car rental agencies, which include insurance coverage for most rentals. Make your reservation through UC's Connexxus travel reservation program or use the ID numbers provided here to receive UC's discounted rates and insurance.
When use of personal vehicle, rental cars, or University-owned vehicles is not feasible, UC ANR employees traveling on University business are urged to use public transit, or licensed taxi/limousine services for local transportation needs. While there are several internet-based rideshare companies now operating, UC ANR Risk Services recommends using licensed taxi/limousine services (displaying a permit) for business travel in order to ensure the drivers are screened, trained, and licensed, and that the driver, vehicle, and company carry adequate insurance.
