Visa Travel Card
The Visa Travel Card through Bank of America was developed by UNCW to allow the permanent university employee to have a credit card to be used for specific official university travel expenses.
Allowable Charges on Card:
- Rental Car
- Lodging (Room Rate and Tax Only)
This card is billed directly to the university. It is the cardholder's responsibility to ensure that all receipts submitted and all transactions are reconciled monthly. A travel authorization must be completed and approved before the use of this card. Under no circumstances may this Visa card be used for personal expenses.\
When using the Visa Travel Card for lodging in North Carolina, at check-in, inform the Front Desk agent that you are using a North Carolina State Tax Exempt Credit Card (the tax id number is on the upper right side of the card). If lodging establishment refuses to waive the state tax, please put a note in the notes section of your travel.
You may apply for the Visa Travel Card by logging on to the E-Travel System in UBusiness.
Upon termination of employment with the University, the card must be returned to the Travel Office located in Hoggard Hall Room 145D. All transactions should be reconciled with receipts before the employee leaves. .
To report a lost or stolen credit card, please contact Bank Of America at 1-888-449-2273.
