Travelers are able to book official travel lodging at Air Force Inns, Navy Gateway Inns & Suites are Navy Lodge and Army Lodging directly in DTS. Marine Corps lodging will be available in DTS in the future.
Policy on Use
The Joint Travel Regulations (JTR) require:
- Uniformed service members on orders to a U.S. military installation to check government quarters availability at the site to which they are temporarily assigned.
- Travelers going TDY to use DTS to book lodging (DoD lodging, privatized, and commercial)
How to Book in DTS
DTS provides a single point of access for reservations, incorporates lodging information into travel documents (authorization/voucher), and automatically secures a certificate of non-availability confirmation number as required by policy when government quarters are not available. See DoD and Privatized Lodging in DTS for a complete listing of DoD lodging facilities available in DTS.
DTS users creating an authorization for overnight travel are automatically routed to the lodging reservation module. If DoD lodging is available at the TDY location, it will display on the “Govt-DoD” tab. If TDY to an Integrated Lodging Program Pilot site and DoD Lodging is available and not used, DTS will display a pre-audit and automatically limit lodging reimbursement. DTS also displays a pre-audit and limits reimbursement for Service members TDY to military installations that choose not to use available DoD Lodging.
