The Bucknell Travel Policy covers travel expenses incurred by individuals engaged in business travel to foreign countries. Special fees for foreign travel required for the business purpose of the trip and the particular destination are reimbursable such as visas or inoculations.
Individuals are requested to pay for expenses associated with foreign travel using a credit card for the most economical exchange rates. The University will reimburse individuals for currency exchange fees.
The University discourages individuals from carrying large amounts of cash. When cash is needed, ATM's usually provide favorable exchange rates. ATM fees for cash withdrawals will be reimbursed. If the travel destination does not accept credit cards or the individual will not have access to an ATM, travelers checks may be used. The fees to purchase travelers checks are reimbursable.
