Setting up your Concur Profile

Concur requires both travellers and travel arrangers to create their own unique profiles.

Please review the following required profile information:

  • Legal name as it appears on travel documentation (e.g. passports)
  • Legal names in Concur should match the names listed in frequent travel programs to avoid booking and tracking errors or even denied boarding at the airport
  • Traveller’s emergency contact information
  • Business contact information (faculty & department/unit name, mailing address, phone, mobile, email).
  • Home contact information is not required.
  • Traveller preferences, e.g. preferred seating, king size bed, non-smoking, preferred departure airport, etc.
  • Frequent travel program numbers. Sign up for frequent travel programs that match UBC’s agreements (Westjet, Air Canada, National Car Rental)
  • Indicate assistants and/or travel arrangers who will book on the traveller’s behalf in the traveller’s profile and update it as needed
  • Travel arrangers must sign into Concur as themselves to arrange bookings for travellers or UBC guests.
