The State Travel Office was placed in service in November, 1992 and is managed by two state employees. Its primary purpose is to save taxpayer dollars used for state business travel. The State has contracted with Christopherson Business Travel to provide five professional travel agents to handle all of our business travel needs.
The State currently has contracts with two major airlines. The negotiated airfares are unrestricted, which means they are refundable and changeable with no penalties. We also have contracts with three major rental car companies. Other services include assistance with rail, buses, lodging, catering and group gathering facilities. The services are also available to cities, counties, political subdivisions, school districts and higher education institutions. The State Travel Office is a full-service travel office with the goal of providing the best services at the best prices.
