NU travel moves to Fox Feb. 1

Beginning Feb. 1, all University of Nebraska employees will arrange their business travel through the NU system’s new travel partner, Fox World Travel.

Fox World Travel was chosen as the university’s official travel management partner following a competitive bid process. A 13-member, systemwide committee representing faculty and staff from all four universities evaluated the proposals, and recommended Fox World Travel based on scores in areas including best practices, cost savings and pricing. Fox World Travel also is experienced in working with major universities including the University of Wisconsin and the University of Chicago. The committee announced the decision Oct. 17.

Fox World Travel can be reached via phone at 855-694-4287 or 402-206-2112, and by email at

As part of the transition, online travel booking through Concur will be temporarily disabled Jan. 30-31. Travelers should schedule their travel arrangements before Jan. 30 or wait until 7 a.m. Feb. 1, when online booking will again be available.

Travel and Transport, the university’s current travel partner, will be able to assist with current reservations during the downtime. Employees will still be able to access Concur travel requests, expenses and approvals through Firefly.

Frequently asked questions about the transition are available here, and the university’s updated travel policies are available here. Additional questions can be forwarded to the University of Nebraska Travel Office at 402-554-3456 or by email at
