Billeting reservations are made through NAVPTO/SATO at COMNAVSURFRESFOR New Orleans. Once you receive your flight itinerary, confirm your billeting status by checking your itinerary form for the following codes:

  • CBQ: Pearl Harbor Naval Station if the member will stay in government quarters.
  • CNA: if there is Confirmed Non-Availability at the CBQ, the member may stay in a hotel in town. A “CNA” stamp on your orders means BEQ/CBQ rooms were not available during SATO’s initial reservation request. Call the local BEQ/CBQ and re-confirm CNA status prior to making any hotel reservations. If the BEQ re-confirms no rooms are available then make hotel reservations. Contact SATO for a list of hotels. Local hotels require a credit card to reserve rooms. The member is responsible for any expenses greater than the maximum allowed Per Diem. For the latest information on Per Diem Rates, visit Keep all receipts for reimbursement from PSD. Any effort to acquire a non-availability number once government lodging has been assigned will lead to IMMEDIATE cancellation of orders.

Government Travel Credit Card
For those issued a Government Travel Credit Card (GTCC), you will not receive advance Per Diem. Ensure your Reserve Center has activated your GTCC and re-confirm its activation prior to your departure to Hawaii. For those personnel using a personal credit card, please ensure enough funds are available to cover expenses during your stay. Advances must be obtained from RESCEN PSD.
