When it comes to traveling, whether it’s for business or pleasure, I have pretty high expectations.
Business travel consists of me having to leave my family at home, so I try to make my trips as short as possible to return home quickly, which usually results in me having a very tight schedule. I have had many experiences in the past where I am waiting for a rideshare service or waiting for my car service to gather my paperwork together, which seems to take a lifetime.
I’m sure I can speak for most business travelers when I say that having to wait is a HUGE pet peeve. I like to think that traveling can be just as much a luxury as being at home, if you have the right resources and amenities. Why should you have to sacrifice when you are away on business, am I right?
I travel at least once a month for business and two to three times a year for pleasure. I almost always rent a vehicle to get to and from the airport. I’ve taken rideshares, but that can get very pricey. To be honest, I like being in complete control of my time. I like having a vehicle readily available for me if I need it. It allows me to have one less thing to worry about when I am planning out my work schedule.
Here come the high expectations that I mentioned before: I expect my rental car to be clean, easy to access, and of similar quality to what I drive daily. Again, my perspective is, why should I have to sacrifice when I’m away on business? I shouldn’t, period.
Now, here is where I want to share my excitement, and for lack of a better word, relief! I have finally found a car rental service that has exceeded my expectations and has made my business travel worthwhile. National Car Rental came to my attention a few weeks ago and I thought, why not give them a try?
I had a business trip coming up, so it was the perfect time to try something new. I decided to join their Emerald Club, which opens up even more perks when traveling; and let me tell you, it was outstanding to say the least!
