Temporary Lodging Before/After Arrival

If your Soldier is authorized temporary lodging, your family will need to make 2 types of reservations when getting ready to PCS overseas:

  1. Lodging Prior to Departure
    • CONUS Temporary Lodging Expense (TLE) reimburses Stateside Soldiers for up to 5 nights of lodging and meals in gov’t quarters prior to departing for Italy.
    • OCONUS Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) reimburses overseas Soldiers for a certain number of nights (depending on duty station) of lodging and meals in gov’t quarters prior to departing for Italy.
  2. Lodging Upon Arrival in Italy
    • Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) reimburses Soldiers for overseas gov’t lodging and meals in 10- night increments. On-post lodging at the Ederle Inn books up fast! Because on-post lodging is limited, most families stay in off-post hotels.
