Unallowable Costs

It is impossible to compile an all-inclusive list of costs which will not be reimbursed by UAB; so when considering whether or not to make an expenditure while in travel status, the traveler should first assume that a cost will not be reimbursed unless the official Expenditure Guidelines clearly state that it is allowable.  Unallowable costs should not be included on the employee's travel requisition.  Here are some examples of costs, which will not be reimbursed by UAB:

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Clothing
  • Credit card interest, finance charges, or penalties
  • Family or friend costs
  • Gym fees
  • Laundry services
  • Luggage repairs
  • Luggage replacement
  • Medical expenses
  • Movies or videos
  • Personal phone calls
  • Sightseeing or souvenirs
  • Shoe repair
  • Snacks
  • Toiletry articles
  • Umbrellas
  • Vitamins
