Spend on Car Rentals More than Doubles Annually in Q2 2023, Emburse SpendSmart Reports

Emburse, a leader in travel and expense (T&E) management, announced today the results of its Q2 2023 SpendSmart Travel Trends report. This quarterly report tracks how much organizations spend on business travel, as well as trends for booking volume and trip length, and compares it to the previous year and the previous quarter.

In Q2 2023, business travel measures changed as follows:

Car rental companies reduced their fleets during the pandemic lockdown and have not yet fully restocked. When the pandemic emergency was declared over in May 2023, a boom in demand for car rentals drove prices up exponentially, which is reflected by the data released today. This leaves corporate travel managers in a position to make difficult decisions about how to guide their employees for business trip transportation.

"The state of the car rental market is a great example of why we are making moves like our recent acquisition of TRIPBAM, which ensures that companies are getting the best rates on rental cars, hotels and airfare," said Eric Friedrichsen, CEO of Emburse. "Business travel continues to rebound, but the economy we are in is different from that of 2019 or even last year. While our customers are lifting travel bans, they are still looking to maximize the value they get for each trip. And we're helping them by reducing the cost side of the ROI calculation."

Emburse plans to continue monitoring these figures and updating them quarterly. The next SpendSmart Travel Trends report will examine Q3 2023 and will be available in October.
