WPI MyTrips Travel Registry

Register your travel for peace of mind and expedited access to critical resources. Registration of your WPI-sponsored travel pre-authorizes the use of the medical, security and travel services of International SOS while abroad. International SOS is WPI's international travel medical and security assistance partner and facilitates access to critical international insurance coverage and emergency medical and security assistance during your travels. 

Please email global@wpi.edu with any questions about the registry. You may also arrange a time for the Director of Global Risk Management to visit your department/unit or arrange a 1:1 training on the registry. 

For information on the services provided by International SOS and for information on WPI's international travel medical insurance please visit International SOS: 24/7 Travel Assistance

Registering WPI-Associated Travel

Who Must Register Their Travel?

All WPI students, faculty, and staff must register their WPI-sponsored international travel. This include any travel associated with research, conferences, coursework, etc. 

What is the WPI MyTrips International Travel Registry?

The WPI MyTrips Travel Registry is a confidential and secure platform on which to record travel itineraries and emergency contact information. MyTrips will require travelers to create a one-time profile and then register the details of each trip.

Registry information is confidential. It is used by WPI to track WPI-sponsored travel, communicate with you more effectively if there is an incident during your travel, and forms the basis for WPI's emergency response protocols and communication strategy (e.g., alerts, warnings, evacuation notices) when responding to an emergency or critical incident abroad. 

What are the benefits to me?

Registering your international travel allows WPI to track all WPI-sponsored travel by students, faculty, and staff.  This helps WPI communicate with you more effectively if there is an incident during your travel and enables us to better respond to your needs.  When incidents do occur, WPI can contact our travelers in the area to confirm their well-being.

Once you register on MyTrips, International SOS will provide a Pre-Trip Advisory that lists risk in your travel area.

Once you register on MyTrips, you are pre-authorized to use, and registered for WPI’s medical and security assistance while abroad and will automatically receive alerts of incidents impacting your registered destination via email. Please download the assistance app to receive app based notifications. 

For information on the services provided by International SOS and for information on WPI's international travel medical insurance please visit International S0S: 24/7 Travel Assistance. 

How do I Register My Travel With My Embassy?

After registering your travel through the WPI MyTrips Travel Registry, WPI strongly encourages you to register your travel with the embassy of your country of citizenship.

For U.S. citizens: Use the State Department's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).

Non-U.S. citizens: Consulate with your country’s embassy or consulate for best practices in registering your travel. You may find it useful to use the embassy/consulate search on goabroad.com.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • If I am locked out of my MyTrips account?
  • If you try to login to your MyTrips account and get locked out, an email will be sent directly to WPI to unlock your account. Once your account is unlocked, you will be notified by International SOS. You will then be able to go in and reset your password. ​​

    MyTrips says my profile doesn't exist.

  • If you try to login to your MyTrips account  and see a screen that says "Your profile doesn't exist." contact globaltravel@wpi.edu ASAP. This problem is unfortunate and inconvenient, but easily remedied.We are currently working with International SOS to make sure this problem does not persist, but in the meantime, we appreciate your patience and if you contact us, we can assist in fixing it.
  • How do I cancel a trip?
  • Log into your MyTrips account  .You will see your trip information below your profile.If a trashcan icon is listed at the end of a trip detail, click on this trashcan and the trip will be deleted. If your trip was created by "Agency" then it was registered as part of a group trip. Cancellation of group trips are handled by the group administrator. If you are unable to cancel your trip in MyTrips, contact globaltravel@wpi.edu and we can help. 
  • How do I change my travel details?
  • If your travel plans have changed, e.g. checking in a day earlier, or airline changed flight times, you can make these changed in MyTrips. The method for changing travel details depends on how the trip was registered:
  • Manually Entered: Click on the trip name. Then within the trip details, click on the pencil icon and edit your trip details. 
  • Forwarded Itinerary: your only option is to delete that portion of the trip and either forward your new itinerary, if you have one, or manually enter the new trip details. 
  • Group Trip: The group administrator will make those changes. 
  • Finally, if you need to make changes and are unable, contact globaltravel@wpi.edu, and we can help. 
  • What if I booked a trip using my personal email?
  • If you booked travel through a personal email address you can do two things. First, you can forward this itinerary to your WPI email address then forward to International SOS. Or you can add your personal email address to your profile on MyTrips. If your personal email address is in your MyTrips profile you can then forward any itinerary from that personal email account. 
  • What if my forwarded itinerary was unsuccessful?
  • There are ways that an email forward can be unsuccessful. Three of the main reasons are listed below:
    • The forwarding email was NOT an itinerary confirmation. The system will only accept itinerary confirmations; it will not take receipts or correspondences. Make sure the email you forward contains itinerary details and confirmation number.

    • The itinerary was submitted as a jpeg or png image of the confirmation. Images or screenshots of an itinerary will not be accepted. The original email confirmation must be forwarded unedited. 

    • Though the system accepts itineraries from a large number of vendors, it does not accept them all. It currently accepts flights, hotels, car rentals and bus reservations, and the list of vendors and capabilities continues to expand. If your itinerary was not accepted but it contained itinerary details and a confirmation number, it may be a current vendor limitation to the system. Contact onlinehelp@internationalsos.com with the vendor and type of travel you forwarded, and they can confirm if it is supported. If you have any additional questions regarding your upload please contact globaltravel@wpi.edu

  • What if my itinerary has multiple travelers on it?
  • If your booking includes additional travelers the system will only register the first traveler listed. It is best to only forward itineraries that are for one single traveler. If you are on a group booking, and not the first traveler listed, you will have to manually enter your trip details in your MyTrips account.
  • What if my itinerary is a PDF attachment? 
  • If the itinerary includes a PDF attachment, the attachment should be included when forwarding an itinerary. However, each individual itinerary should be forwarded (i.e. two attachments cannot be processed within the same email)
  • I logged into MyTrips and my travel isn't there!
  • The system may have caught a slight difference between the traveler information listed on the itinerary and the traveler information listed in the profile. This can cause a trip not show up in your profile. Contact onlinehelp@internationalsos.com if this happens to you.
  • Can I register my domestic trip?
  • Yes. However the travel medical and security insurance is only available outside the US (but does include coverage in Puerto Rico). 
  • What if my travel plans have changed?
  • If your travel plans have changed, you can forward the latest confirmation email including the trip changeIf the trip confirmation number has been kept the same by the vendor, then the trip change will be accepted. If the confirmation number has changed, then you will need to log into MyTrips to delete the old travel information. 
  • NOTE: Notification emails on changes to your trip, e.g. an email from an airline that your flight has been changed, cannot be forwarded. If your travel plans have changed and there is no updated itinerary confirmation email to accompany that change, you must log into MyTrips and manually adjust the trip information. 
  • What if my itinerary is not in English? The system supports 28 languages;
Bulgarian Catalan Chinese Czech
Danish Dutch English Estonian
Finnish French German Hebrew
Hungarian Indonesian Italian Japanese
Korean Norwegian Polish Portuguese
Romanian Russian Serbian Spanish
Swedish Turkish Ukrainian Vietnamese

PLEASE NOTE: It will not translate/convert any languages in the itinerary segments which are forwarded.  It will only parse out the necessary content based on what is provided in the itinerary.  For example, for a French language itinerary, the itinerary information will remain in French and not be converted into English.

  • What if my travel is cancelled?
  • Unfortunately, trip cancellations are not supported by forwarding feature. You will need to manually delete these trips by logging into your MyTrips account .
  • Can I register personal travel?
  • MyTrips is designated for WPI-affiliated travel only. Personal travel can be registered only if it occurs within your WPI-affiliated travel dates or 7 days before/after the WPI-affiliated trip.

    What if my question is not listed?

  • Many questions can arise with a new system. If your question is not listed here, or if you need additional assistance, we are happy to help. Contact globaltravel@wpi.edu
