Lodging exemption

June 12, 2017

To ensure UGA is able to provide the safest and most cost effective experience for its students and faculty abroad, university officials requested an exemption to the Statewide Travel Policy that prohibited the use of AirBNB, VRBO and/or other similar services for international lodging.

The State Accounting Office, in partnership with the Office of Planning and Budget, reviewed the request and an exemption was granted for the use of AirBNB, VRBO and/or similar services for international travel lodging needs only. This exemption does not apply to domestic lodging needs.

Contact Andre Simmons in the Accounts Payable Department at with questions about the exemption.
