Foreign Currency

Western does not reimburse travelers in foreign currencies; expenses in currencies other than USD must be converted. Select the expense receipt amount and the foreign currency in Concur for automatic conversion.

When documented by credit card statement the actual amount charged in USD may be entered instead (Note: foreign transaction fees are a separate miscellaneous expense)

  • Statement must show traveler's name, transaction details and date
  • Please redact all but the last 4 digits of the account number
