BOOKING YOUR FLIGHT

Deadline to book flights: May 13

You are responsible for making your own airline reservations for NADT. Please book your flights using your PCard. If flights are booked after the deadline, NADT will cover a maximum of $400. The remainder will be billed to your staff account.

LOWER YOUR FLIGHT COSTS BY ADDING A BUS OR CAR TRIP

If you are willing to fly to Chicago or Milwaukee and take a bus to Madison to save InterVarsity money, we encourage you to do so, particularly if your flight to Madison will cost over $450 or if the difference in airfare to Madison is $100 or more. If it is more than $100 cheaper for you to fly in the day before NADT begins, contact the NADT Operations Team (lat@intervarsity.org) to discuss this option.

From Chicago's O'Hare and Midway Airports, we recommend Van Galder Bus Company for service to Madison. 

From Milwaukee's Mitchell airport, we recommend Badger Bus for service to Madison.

Additionally, if you live near Chicago or Minneapolis, check Megabus for service from Chicago's Union Station or Minneapolis' Metrodome to Madison, U of Wisc. Megabus tickets to Madison can be as low as $10 or as high as $29, depending on how far in advance you buy them.

Travel time by bus to Madison is about 2 hours and 15 minutes from Milwaukee's Mitchell Airport, 3 hours from Chicago's Union Station or O'Hare, 4 hours from Midway Airport, and 5 hours from Minneapolis' Metrodome. When you disembark from the bus at the Chazen Museum of Art on the UW Madison campus, you will be about a 15-20 minute walk via State Street to the Inn on the Park hotel.

Bus tickets purchased online or at Mitchell or O'Hare Airports must be paid for with your PCard. Bus tickets purchased on the bus must be paid for with cash. Submit an expense report on Workday within 60 days of the purchase to be reimbursed for the cost of your bus travel if paid with cash.

EXPENSING TRAVEL IN WORKDAY

REMEMBER: Please submit all expenses for travel within 60 days of the date the expense was incurred (per expense reporting guidelines) in order to be reimbursed. That's 60 days after you have made your purchase - not 60 days from your date of travel.

Submit your expenses in Workday to NADT 2022 (753586) in the Cost Center field.
