Additional Information

The University has an agreement with Diners Club to provide a Corporate Card to EIU employees.  The card is intended to be used for business purposes and is a means of keeping business expenses separate from personal expenses.  Following are a few of the features/benefits of the Corporate Card:

  • Worldwide acceptance at over 4 million established locations, including all major U.S. airlines, lodging and car rental chains
  • 24-hour toll-free cardmember customer service
  • A comprehensive travel insurance package, including full value primary collision damage insurance. *This is an important feature because, according to State travel regulations, the University cannot reimburse travelers if they purchase collision coverage from the car rental agency.
