March 2017 Concur Booking Tool Update

Ohio State utilizes the IUC Contract with Enterprise/National, which provides competitive rental car rates with the University required insurances included in the daily rate (exceptions apply with International locations). The travel office has activated a policy control feature in the Concur Booking Tool when travelers/arrangers make Vehicle Rental reservations. 

Activating the policy controls in the Concur Booking Tool will not prevent/block a reservation with another rental car agency, but will provide prompts to remind the traveler of the insurance requirements (CDW and LDW Required, no other insurance allowed), while allowing the traveler to provide reasoning when it might be appropriate to use another rental agency (e.g. no vehicles available in particular location).

Example Message: Warning This option breaks one or more company travel rules...
