Our research has shown that average hotel spend per year per driver is nearly $2,000, and that’s just for rooms. Take this scenario for example: Your driver has been on the road for two weeks. He’s been sleeping in the bunk of his truck, but it’s quite small and he would like to sleep in a real bed and watch a movie or two. But, hotel rates in the area are high and it would cost less for your company if he continued to sleep in his cramped bunk.
With the Comdata Hotel Network, your driver can rest easy knowing he has access to discounted prices at over 12,000 hotels across the US and Canada. Once you enroll in the program, your drivers will also have access to the Comdata Hotel Network mobile app, which allows them to search for network hotels.
The mobile app provides a wide range of features, such as adding favorite hotels, a map of surrounding hotels, and a total charge summary of estimated expenses for hotel stays, including discounts. Furthermore, drivers can call hotels directly from the mobile app to ensure room availability and make reservations. When calling hotels, all drivers need to do is mention to the hotel clerk that they are with the Comdata Hotel Network program. This lets the clerk know that the driver should receive their hotel’s published discounts.
