Enterprise Cuts Mileage Reimbursement Costs for Scottish Company

Through a partnership with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Investors in People Scotland has reduced its travel costs by replacing mileage reimbursement with renting vehicles. The organization estimates that it has saved an average of 1,500 euros per driver per year.

Investors in People Scotland consultants used to travel using their own cars and then charged the mileage covered. In some cases, employees were driving more than 15,000 miles a year in their own vehicles, says the company.

Then the company looked to rental vehicles as an alternative to reduce costs and lower carbon dioxide emissions. Employees can book their rental vehicles using Enterprise’s online booking tool.

“Daily rental means we have access to a pool of well-maintained, fuel-efficient vehicles at all times at a pre-agreed rate,” said Roz Haughey, business growth coordinator for Investors in People Scotland. “The Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch is also very close to us, which means we can easily rent cars at the last minute if we need to.”

“Today, as is the case with Investors in People Scotland, employees see that mileage reimbursement places a huge toll on their own cars and affects resale values,” said Adrian Bewley, head of business rental for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. “Instead, daily rental is an easy solution. We have branches all over the country and can make sure a vehicle is with the customer very quickly and efficiently, with no parking issues, lower emissions and thorough maintenance.”
