How to Book
GetThere, the commonwealth's online booking system, to reserve a room.
- Pick a
preferred hotel from the displayed list. If there are no preferred hotels available near your destination, pick one that meets the
GSA maximum allowable rate for that region. You will have to provide a business justification for "out of policy" hotels.
- If you need help with GetThere, check the
user guide or call ADTRAV, the commonwealth’s travel agency, at 866.530.8899. Choose prompt #3.
- If you qualify to use your agency's lodging card or need assistance booking your hotel, call ADTRAV, the commonwealth’s travel agency, at 866.530.8899. Choose prompt #1. You must call ADTRAV at least 3 business days in advance if you are using your
agency's lodging card.
- Fill out this
REV1220 tax exemption form and present it at the hotel when you check in. Here is
an example of the correct way to fill out the form.
The Department of Revenue has clarified that commonwealth employees traveling on commonwealth business are indeed exempt from hotel room rental tax ("occupancy tax").
- Travelers without an assigned SAP identification number must have their reservations made by an agency-assigned travel arranger.
