Travel arrangements and reimbursement

Booking Travel Arrangements

Fellows and trainees in Australia and New Zealand book all travel through Corporate Travel Management (CTM), including accommodation, car hire and airfares. CTM invoice the RACP directly for bookings relating to College business. You must pay any separate bookings for personal travel directly to CTM.
