What is CWTSato To Go?

CWTSato To Go™ is a complimentary mobile travel app available to all CWTSatoTravel travelers through their smartphone's app store. Before and during a trip, CWTSato To Go gives travelers immediate access to traveler services such as itineraries, flight alerts, and mobile check-in, all via their smartphone.

Powered by WorldMate, the industry-leading and award-winning travel app, CWTSato To Go gives U.S. Government (including military) travelers the premium features and helpful services they need to stay informed and efficient on the road, without the risks associated with non-approved, third-party apps.

Once your organization has approved the use of CWTSato To Go, all of your official trips booked through CWTSatoTravel will automatically sync to your mobile device. If you are an E2 Solutions user and your organization receives travel reservation and fulfillment services from a company other than CWTSatoTravel, please contact us at support@cwtsatotogo.com to inquire about app availability.

How much does CWTSato To Go cost?

The CWTSato To Go app is complimentary to all CWTSatoTravel customers, including military and civilian government travelers.

Is CWTSato To Go available for my device?

The CWTSato To Go app is available for the following devices:

  • Android smartphones with OS 2.3 or above
  • iPhones with iOS 7.0 or above

How do I get the app?

Download it from your device's app store for iPhone or for Android . You must have data and JavaScript enabled on your smart device, as well as a valid account with your respective app store, to download and use the app.

TIP: Your agency may provide a different location for the app other than the public app store. If available, always download the app from an agency-specified location.

What is the current version of CWTSato To Go?

Version 2.0 is available for all supported smart devices.

How do I access the CWTSato To Go app?

After downloading the CWTSato To Go app, follow the simple self-registration process within the app to establish your CWTSato To Go account. Enter your government email address and the app will walk you through the remaining steps.

What email address should I use to register?

You must use your official U.S. Government or military email address. This should also be the same email address you provide when booking trips.

  • If you book travel online through E2 Solutions, this email address must be your E2 primary email address.
  • If you book travel online through GetThere, this email address must be stored in the mandatory email address field in your GetThere profile.

CWTSato To Go allows email addresses from all domains ending in .gov and .mil, as well as several ending in .org. If you are unsure if your organization's email domain is open for CWTSato To Go use, please contact us at support@cwtsatotogo.com.

TIP: If your current E2 primary email address or GetThere address does not meet these domain requirements, you would need to change your primary email address in your E2 or GetThere profile to your official U.S. Government or military email address to be able to use the app.

Does my agency need to take any actions?

Yes. Your agency must approve the use of the tool before your government travel itineraries automatically appear in the app.

How do I reset my password?

The app's login page has a Forgot Password? link located directly below where you normally enter your password. Tap the link, and then proceed through the following steps:

  1. Enter the email address you used when you signed up in the Enter your work email field.
  2. Tap the NEXT button. An email explaining how to reset your password is sent to your email address.
  3. Follow the instructions in the email.

I booked a trip through CWTSatoTravel – with a travel agent, through DTS, through E2 Solutions, or through GetThere. Will my reservation sync with CWTSato To Go?

Yes. Upon your agency's approval of this feature, if you book your trip through CWTSatoTravel, your trip details (i.e., air, hotel, rental car, etc.) will automatically sync with CWTSato To Go. You can view those reservations and even combine them with information booked via another source.

Travelers who use E2 Solutions, but book their trips with a TMC other than CWTSatoTravel, can still use CWTSato To Go. Some TMCs are configured to have your trips automatically sync with the app. In other cases, simply forward your itinerary emails from your official email address to plans@cwtsatotogo.com. To verify TMC support for the app, contact your agency's travel management team or our technical help desk at support@cwtsatotogo.com.

Please note that if you work for a U.S. Embassy or Post that is located overseas, your trips may not automatically sync to the app. You can contact us at support@cwtsatotogo.com to validate if this feature is available to you.

How long will it take for a newly booked reservation to appear in CWTSato To Go?

Your trip information may take up to 30 minutes to sync to the app.

On my list of upcoming trips, why does the trip name differ from my destination city?

The "Trip to" name comes from the city where you stay the longest. This location typically corresponds to the location of your hotel reservation. You can easily change the "Trip to" name using the app's Edit Trip feature.

Are rail itineraries available in the app?

Yes, rail itineraries are available in the app. Depending on the way the rail booking is processed, it may or may not sync automatically. If your rail itinerary did not sync automatically with the CWTSato To Go app, email your confirmation to plans@cwtsatotogo.com to have it added. You may also add the details manually.

How do I add non-CWTSatoTravel reservations/itineraries that do not automatically sync to the CWTSato To Go app?

Forward your non-synced reservations/itineraries from the same email address you use to access CWTSato To Go to plans@cwtsatotogo.com. Your trip reservations will be automatically loaded into your app and you will receive an email confirmation when your information is successfully uploaded. You can also forward emails from a personal email address, if that address is stored in CWTSato To Go (i.e., Tools > Settings > Email Addresses). You can also add trip details to the app manually.

How do I know if my non-CWTSatoTravel itinerary can be accepted by email?

Visit WorldMate's Supported Travel Providers list for a list of the more than 600 supported suppliers. If you still have questions, contact our technical help desk at support@cwtsatotogo.com.

TIP: Did you book a personal trip under a non-official email address? You can still forward that trip to CWTSato To Go! Add your personal email address to your CWTSato To Go account by opening the app, accessing Tools > Settings > Email Addresses, and then entering your personal email address. You can now forward itinerary confirmations from that email address to CWTSato To Go.

I sent my non-CWTSatoTravel itinerary to plans@cwtsatotogo.com, but it does not appear in my CWTSato To Go app. Why?

You must send your itinerary confirmation from the same email address you use to log onto CWTSato To Go, or from the secondary personal email address stored in the app under Settings. In addition, the travel confirmation must be from a supported travel provider.

I received a confirmation saying my reservations were successfully added, but I cannot find them in my CWTSato To Go account. How do I get the itineraries to display?

Initiate a manual sync on your device.

  • On an iPhone, tap the Sync button in the top right corner of the My Trips screen. (The Sync button is represented by one circular arrow.)
  • On an Android device, drag down the "My Trips" menu to sync.

My travel provider is supported, but the confirmation email is being rejected. Why?

Make sure you follow these rules:

  • Forward the confirmation email as is. Do not alter it in any way.
  • Ensure the subject and content of the email are in their original formats. (Some email programs automatically add the FW prefix in the subject line. This is okay.)
  • If the mailing program allows it, forward the email in an HTML format, rather than plain text.
  • Some mailing programs may forward emails as attachments. CWTSato To Go will import a confirmation email sent as a PDF attachment, if it is sent by a supported carrier (e.g., TripCase, Travel Advisor). If you experience problems, however, make sure the text of the original email is in the body of the forwarded email and is not sent as an attachment.

How do I check in for my flight and get my paperless boarding pass?

Based on your itinerary information, CWTSato To Go determines whether online check-in and paperless boarding passes are available. When you tap to check in, the app connects you to your airline's mobile website to complete the process. Paperless boarding passes are available only for certain airlines and airports. For more information about paperless boarding pass programs, refer to your country's governing agency (e.g., TSA in the U.S.).

How many airlines are available for mobile check-in?

I am an iPhone user. Why did I receive a message requesting permission for CWTSato To Go to access my calendar?

Apple introduced a new feature in iOS version 6 to provide users control over apps accessing private information, such as calendars.

You can always change your permissions on your device by going to Settings > Privacy > Calendars.

Who supplies the information for the travel alerts?

I have downloaded the app but cannot complete my registration. I have received an email that says, "You are receiving this email because you have requested access to CWT To Go or CWT Portal." What is CWT Portal? Help!

Oops, sounds like you may have downloaded the wrong app. Verify you have downloaded the CWTSato To Go app.

  • Our CWTSatoTravel military and government customers should download CWTSato To Go, which has a dark blue icon.
  • If your app icon says "myCWT," you have the wrong app. This app is meant for CWT corporate business travel customers.

Return to your device's app store, or your specified agency location, and download the CWTSato To Go app.

I am using CWTSato To Go for the first time. Why can't I see my upcoming trips?

When you access the app for the first time, it may take up to 30 minutes for upcoming trips to appear. The amount of time depends on the number of reservations per user. After 30 minutes, you may need to initiate a manual sync on your device.

  • On an iPhone, tap the Sync button in the top right corner of the My Trips screen. (The Sync button is represented by one circular arrow.)

On an Android device:

  1. Access the Settings screen.
  2. Tap Travel Notifications.

    •  Badge app icon
    •  Sounds
    •  View in lock screen

Flight notifications are enabled. Why am I not receiving alerts?

If flight data is missing or late, it is probably due to one of the following reasons.

  • Airlines occasionally provide data on their respective websites, but do not provide that same data to the flight-tracking industry.
  • Some airlines do not provide actual gate departure or arrival times.
  • Some airlines share no data.
  • Budget and charter airlines tend not to share data or only share limited data, so the flight may not be listed until near the departure time.
  • Some airlines (particularly carriers outside the U.S.) do not share any gate data with the flight-tracking industry.
  • In many cases, gates and terminals are not provided until approximately 60 minutes prior to departure.

If you encounter longer delays or inaccurate information, please email us and include the following information:

  • Airline, flight number, and departure date
  • The information that you expected to see
  • The information that the app displayed
  • The device you are using
