When to rent a car for business travel

A business traveler carries an app and looks for their rental car

Arranging business travel has never been more straightforward. With Egencia’s global platform, you can book, manage, and expense your corporate travel all in one place.

Let’s imagine you’re traveling abroad to attend a conference in a few weeks, and since it’s in the vicinity, you’re going to tie in some prospect and customer meetings while you’re there. You booked your flights and accommodation, and now, it’s time to organize transportation once you land. Will you jump in a cab to the hotel, ride the subway to your four back-to-back meetings, and jump back in a cab to attend your dinner plans? Or does it make more sense to rent a car?

Whether making multiple stops or attending far-flung meetings, there are plenty of situations where renting a car is the best option.
