If you have a reservation to travel on the AMC Patriot Express or any other bookable AMC Controlled mission, you will be required to use your Government Travel Card or GTC to pay for your travel.  This is a new program implemented by AMC/FM Financial Management who is currently conducting an evaluation of this new process at these locations.  The program is called “Up Front Billing” and is simply a new process where instead of using the funding site or CIC associated with your travel orders, you will pay with your government issued travel credit card at the time when you check in at the AMC Passenger Terminal.  The card may be used to pay for the Passenger Fee or “Tariff Rate” and Authorized Excess Baggage Fees.  

 

Normally these fees are pretty high for international flights.  Be sure to contact your local ticketing office (TMO/ITO), to determine fare cost and your Unit GTC Agency Program Coordinator to ensure you have sufficient credit limit to cover all travel related expenses.  Prior to arriving at the passenger terminal, ensure your card has been activated and you know your PIN.  Your Boarding Pass will act as your receipt.  Detailed  charges are provided on the Boarding Pass, so be sure that you retain it to submit with your travel voucher.  This program is expanding and new locations may be added throughout the year.
