Travel Advances should be requested only for cash actually needed. An advance should not be requested for expenses that can be charged on a credit card or can be paid with a BYU-Idaho check.
Cash advances between $25 and $600 can be requested up to seven days in advance of travel until the day you will leave.
Group tours will be issued cash over the allowable limit by authorization of the tour director. For large amount travel advances for tours, please contact Accounts Payable at ext. 1997 for options. Travel advances are considered as loans to employees. When the travel advance exceeds the actual expenses reported on the TA, the difference should be deposited at the Cashiers Office after the travel has been reconciled. The travel advance may be deducted from the employee's paycheck if the unused portion of the cash is not returned to the Cashiers Office and the expenses incurred are not reported on the TA within five working days of returning from the trip.
