International Travel Registry
The Office of Risk Management has integrated its International Travel Registry with the University's travel assistance provider, International SOS's, "MyTrips" Portal. This integration will ensure that University's travelers receive quick assistance when traveling abroad and allow two-way communications with affected travelers in the event of an emergency. All Faculty, Staff, and Students traveling international should enroll in "MyTrips" (only required once) and then register the details of each trip not booked through Short's Travel Management System.
New to MyTrips? Get Started
Registration on MyTrips involves two processes; creating a MyTrips Profile and then, creating a New Trip (not required for flights, rental cars or hotels booked through LSU's Short's Travel Portal which is linked to MyTrips.
Creating MyTrips Profile
Creating a New Trip
Please note that travel booked through the Short's Travel System does not need to be entered as it is automatically uploaded into MyTrips.
There are two options for this process:
Option A - Forwarding your Itinerary (simple):
After creating or updating the MyTrips Profile and using the same email address that serves as MyTrip Username, forward the itinerary confirmation email (without editing it), that was received from the airline, hotel, or travel booking site, to LSUTravel@itinerary.internationalsos.com.
Note when using this option:
Make sure to set up your MyTrips username as the email address to which you normally receive the itinerary confirmation emails. If you already have a MyTrips account under a different email address, you can create a new MyTrips account by using a different email address as your user name.
Whenever an itinerary confirmation email is forwarded to the above mailbox, the traveler will receive an automated email regarding the processing status.
The traveler can always log in to their MyTrips account to access the trip details.
- If they notice an issue with their trip in their MyTrips account, please submit queries or feedback to email@example.com (clicking here will generate the message with a template of what should be included).
- If the traveler makes a change to their booking, please repeat the step above and forward the latest version of the itinerary confirmation email to the to LSUTravel@itinerary.internationalsos.com.
