When do you take or decline a travel voucher?

  • If you do not have any travel plans that are affected take it
  • If you can afford additional PTO days if it would affect work, you should consider it
  • Definitely don’t be the first person to take the offer, as it won’t be the highest offer
  • Definitely take it if its only a few hours away
