Using a Government Travel Card -or- a Personal Credit Card
Some civilian personnel may find it useful to charge lodging, meals, a car rental, and gas on a government charge card while on official orders, while others prefer to use a personal credit card to collect airline miles or credit card rewards points and even cash back on all purchases. There are benefits to both methods of credit card payment while on TDY orders. A government card gives a traveler the option of not having to tie up their personal credit, or if funds are unavailable (most lodging establishments require payment in advance), it allows the traveler to make all payments on the government charge card. The benefits of “racking up miles or points” while on official orders is appealing, the only drawback being the potential for a DD Form 1351 travel voucher to take weeks or even months before being fully reimbursed. TDY Stay accepts all government travel cards as well as all major credit cards.
Government Travel Regulations
Regulations vary slightly by branch of government. Each individual branch has their own website which can provide the most up to date information and resources for federal employees, including travel regulations, hotels with government rates, mileage reimbursement, and per diem allowances. Below is a list of helpful links to some of the major government travel websites which cover travel regulations:
