Needing a Break...
The fall season is nearly here. Around much of the country, temperatures are falling, school is back in session (in some form or another) and many are hunkering down into normal routines as much as possible.
It is certainly challenging to comprehend what “normal” means anymore.
Some predictions indicate that domestic travel may increase a bit, mainly in the form of people hopping in cars to visit relatives. As such, rental car usage is expected to increase slightly as many travelers are concerned with using rideshare services.
To this end, rideshare company, Lyft recently announced Lyft Rentals as a means to increase its total customer offering.
Whether your customers intend to leaf peep (see HERE) or get away for the weekend to clear their heads, the same old travel rules apply: encourage your customers to use a card that provides all the necessary travel benefits. Though some hotels and Airbnb-type services are loosening cancellation policies as a means to attract more travelers, cbsi still recommends reminding bank card customers to use the correct card when leaving the house.
In this issue we provide some additional resources that you might find valuable for you and your card holders.
Thank you and safe travels!
