The Stanford Travel team is excited to announce a new booking channel, Key Travel, that launched on Monday, March 20.
Key Travel is the world’s largest travel management company specializing in the humanitarian and academic sectors. In addition to Stanford-negotiated rates, Key Travel offers flexible academic rates for international airfares that are exclusive to the academic sector. Unique features include the ability to book multiple travelers (e.g., family members) on the same reservation and provide Fly America Act guidance for federally funded travel.
Key Travel is recommended for travel that is complex or requires booking multiple travelers on the same reservation. Please visit the Stanford Travel Program page for details on how to contact one of the designated Key Travel agents.
Sunsetting of FCM booking channel
With the launch of Key Travel, the Stanford Travel booking channel FCM is no longer available for booking new reservations for university travelers. Instead, Stanford Travel recommends Key Travel for travelers and travel arrangers with complex trips and who need to book multiple travelers.
Travelers with an existing FCM reservation can still reach out to FCM if they need to change or cancel a booking. FCM will support these travelers for the duration of their trip, with a designated team of FCM agents to assist travelers with any inquiries about existing trips. Reach out to them via email (@email) or phone at 1-800-832-3445.
For any questions or concerns about the transition, please contact the Travel Team directly via Support Request or phone at 650-497-1214.
