The U.S. Government Rental Car Program provides quality vehicles at reasonable prices for federal travelers on official travel. U.S. Government Rental Car Agreement Number 4 governs the rental of vehicles (passenger cars, sports utility vehicles, station wagons, passenger vans, and small pick-up trucks) by military members, employees of the Federal Government, and employees of the United States Postal Service while in official travel status and when such rental is authorized by the Government. Benefits of the program include:
Rail - All reservations must be made using GovTrip or by contacting Omega Travel. Add delivery address and the ticketing date to your travel authorization to avoid the full touch fee.
FedRooms Hotels -FedRooms® offers specially negotiated Federal government hotel rates with FEMA certified hotels, simplifying hotel selections for Federal travelers. These rates are at or below per diem and often include value-added amenities unavailable through other government programs or websites, reducing travel costs for the HHS. FedRooms was designed for all federal employees, military and civilian. The FedRooms rate can be used by government contractors and state employees on official travel and federal travelers on leisure travel if the individual hotel agrees.
Vouchers are required to be submitted within 5 days after your return.
