Egencia is one of several booking channels within the Stanford Travel Program. Egencia, a robust online booking system, can be used to book airfare, lodging and ground transportation. Egencia is used primarily to book domestic and standard international trips, either online or with an experienced travel agent. Other booking channels may be more appropriate for the travel need.  

Egencia provides airline, lodging and ground transportation booking services under negotiated rates and terms. Egencia is integrated with Stanford’s provider of traveler assistance in the event of an emergency.

When to Use Egencia
Per the Administrative Guide Policy 5.4.2: Business and Travel Expenses, to be reimbursed for university-sponsored travel, faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars and students must use a Stanford Travel booking channel when booking airfare, hotels or car rentals (with limited exemptions). Complete policy details are available in the Business and Travel Expense Policies overview.

All active faculty,  staff and students have Egencia profiles. Due to Stanford’s single sign-on (SSO) requirements, Stanford travelers must access Egencia by logging in to with their SUNet ID and password.
