One in two corporate travel policies now allow ride-sharing services

The GBTA Business Traveler Sentiment Index revealed as corporate travel policies expanded to include services like Uber and Lyft, ride-sharing among business travellers increased 21 per cent.

Susan Chapman Hughes, from American Express, says sharing economy trends continue to influence business travel.

“However, nearly one in five travellers are still unsure whether their employer’s policies allow for sharing-economy services; making it especially important for companies to communicate clear details about the services and amenities that their policy covers,” she says.

The report also found the use of home-sharing services, like Airbnb and HomeAway, also increased 20 per cent from June 2016, despite only 30 per cent of companies allowing this accommodation option.
