Off-Base Lodging (when on-base is unavailable)

For TDY guests, lodging staff will coordinate off-base lodging with one of their contract quarter properties in the local area and issue a Non-Availability Letter to the guest. The TDY member is responsible for paying the hotel charges and must request reimbursement through his/her travel voucher upon completion of the TDY. This service is not available for space-available guests.

PCS guests are given a Temporary Living Expense (TLE) letter that specifies that on-base facilities were not available. The guests are responsible for obtaining their own local accommodations. If requested however, the lodging staff will assist the guest in locating accommodations.
