To get the best price on airfare, it is important to book the flight in advance, usually 14 days in advance for domestic flights. Airfare usually drops considerably when the traveler stays at least one Saturday overnight at the destination. Payment usually has to be made within 24 hours of the reservation and is normally non-refundable. Fares are not guaranteed until tickets are issued. Tickets purchased at these agencies are subject to service fees to cover the cost of booking and professional services provided. Fees are $35 for domestic and $50 for international tickets.
These discounts may be applied to tickets for Official University of Iowa business travel only and must be ticketed through our UI Preferred Travel Agencies. This includes guests coming to the University of Iowa as well as UI students/faculty/staff traveling on University business. Restrictions apply; agencies will verify discounts.
