GW has negotiated hotel lodging discounts offering reduced pricing around the world with various hotel chains. These rates can be booked through iBuy+ Travel, for both business and leisure travel or by selecting a hotel logo to book through GW’s direct link to their hotels. GW also has hotel lodging discounts available through Booking.com and Hotel Engine.
When booking rooms for visitors to the university and direct billing them to the purchasing card, please follow these security guidelines:
Never email or fax a complete credit card number to any hotel.
Never email or fax a photo of the credit card or the cardholder’s driver’s license
Complete credit numbers should always be provided to the hotel by telephone
Credit authorizations that may be required by a hotel should only include the last four digits of the card number that has been provided in total by telephone, unless the authorization is being returned by regular mail
These guidelines are critical to the security of our purchasing cards. Should any hotel refuse to comply with this policy, please contact Vince Johns, GW Travel Services Administrator, 571-553-4269 for assistance.
