Travel Expense Codes
Travel on Purchasing Card
Purchasing card allowable travel expenses are
- airline tickets,
- registrations (conference fees),
- lodging, and
- car rentals.
The cardholder is responsible for reallocating all travel charged on the purchasing card from expense account code E210 to a travel expense account code. Travel expense account codes that can be used for travel charged on your purchasing card are listed below.
On Access Online (Axol), where possible we have defaulted to certain Merchant Category Codes (MCCs) for specific travel expenses codes—indicated below by "auto allocated." For example: Airline tickets are auto allocated to E711. In Axol, a description must be added that includes the traveler's name, date of travel, destination, and reason for travel—the who, when, where, and why.
If you need help with doing reallocations on Axol, see Access Online—Purchasing Card Statements and Reallocations instructions.
