Book Multi-Person Travel Using Stanford Booking Channels

Occasionally, multiple travelers (up to 10 people) may want to book a trip together via the Stanford Travel booking channels. For example, family members may accompany those traveling on Stanford university-sponsored business (as personal travel), or colleagues may want to travel together. This article describes how to book travel for small groups using the Stanford Travel booking channels.

To book travel for groups of 10 or more travelers, please submit the Group or Program Travel Request form.

Book Multi-Person Travel Using Stanford Booking Channels

The Stanford booking channels are,

FCM is an option for multi-person travel because their full service travel agents can book multiple travelers on the same reservation. This will limit the risk of being seated separately on the aircraft or being separated in the event of any flight disruptions, and can extend applicable loyalty benefits,  such as preferred seating and priority boarding, to accompanying travelers. To learn more, visit the Fingate page Stanford Travel Booking Channels: FCM (formerly Casto). Agent fees may apply. 

Egencia is an option if those traveling:

  • Have different itineraries,
  • Are all adults, and
  • Do not need to be booked together on a single record

The Egencia online booking tool is not configured for multiple travelers to be booked together on the same reservation. With separate reservations, the group may be separated in the event of any flight disruption. Children in the group who are 14 years old or younger and booked on a flight without an adult will be flagged by the airline as an unaccompanied minor.

Stanford travelers can book accompanying individuals with an Egencia agent after creating a guest profile template. For details on guest profiles, visit How to Book and Manage Guest Travel in Egencia. To learn more, visit Stanford Travel Booking Channels: Egencia. Agent fees may apply.

Only the Mileage Plus account holder can book travel with United Corporate Direct (UCD). Additional travelers must be booked via a different booking source. To learn more, visit Stanford Travel Booking Channels: United Corporate Direct on Fingate.

For student groups, visit the StudentUniverse group travel webpage to learn more. Students traveling together can contact the group travel contact. When you are ready to book the travel, contact:
