Here are some snippets of TJ Clark’s guest article at tnooz.com on the reasons online travel sites should include private car service for corporate travelers:
“Let’s do some quick back-of-the-napkin math and say your company takes 1,000 round-trip flights per year. For each of these, there are four possible ground transfers — to and from the airport — or 4,000 per year. Conservatively, let’s say each transfer costs $60.
