Itinerary - Meal Per Diem and Lodging (Travel Allowance)
When you create your report, you will need to create an itinerary if you will be claiming lodging and/or meals. If you don't do this step when you create the report, you can add it later.
If an itinerary was built into the Request and the date has passed, it will show in your available itineraries. You may have to adjust the search in the drop-down if your travel was not recent. Click on the title of the itinerary to select it, then click Assign.
Click on Travel Allowance>New Itinerary.
Complete all required fields for the first stop. Enter the city/destination where your business will be conducted, not the connecting cities or airport. (e.g. Denver vs. Colorado Springs.)
This is the travel day. Concur will calculate per diem for this day at 75% of the allowance for the destination. You don't need to check any boxes for meal allowances to remove meals on the travel day.
This should be the return travel day. If you have multiple stops, for example Eugene to Seattle for several days business, then on to Denver for additional business, then return to Eugene, then enter each leg of the itinerary. In this example, you would have 3 lines. This way, Concur can calculate the correct per diem for each city.
If meals were provided, click in the box for that meal on the grid. Do not exclude any meals on travel days. Concur automatically calculates 75% of GSA for those days. In this example, lunch was provided each day.
If hotel was paid on One Card, Click on the correct item from Available Expenses, note that Concur will attempt to create the itemization based on the receipt. Testing thus far indicates that you will need to edit the itemization, It may be simpler to delete and create manually. Be sure that the Travel Allowance box is checked.
If hotel was paid with personal card, click on +New Expense, select hotel from available expenses.
Select Hotel from the Expense Types on the right side of the screen. Complete the required fields, enter any info or comments that may be helpful to explain unusual circumstances.
Click the Itemizations tab. Enter Check in Date. Room Rate, Room tax. Any additional charges such as parking can be added in the Additional Charges section.
