  • Travelers (military and civilian) TDY to U.S. military installations at select Integrated Lodging Program sites to book government quarters before other lodging options.  
  • 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 the Official ILP Site Listing for all 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 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.
