Discounts and travel expenses at no cost
A state employee may not be reimbursed for a travel expense unless the employee has incurred the expense. Therefore, a state employee may not be reimbursed for the value or cost of a discount on a travel expense unless the employee paid money to obtain the discount. If a state employee receives a discount as a benefit of making unrelated purchases or conducting unrelated business with the provider of the discount, the discount is considered to be provided free to the employee. This section further details discounts offered on travel expenses.
