Two-thirds of Brits travelling on business are still reluctant to use a sharing economy-type accommodation or ground transportation provider.

Two-thirds of Brits travelling on business are still reluctant to use a sharing economy-type accommodation or ground transportation provider.

The survey of more than 6,000 business travellers by Egencia found that 41% of UK companies allow staff to use services such as Airbnb, Lyft, Uber and HomeAway.

But just 28% use such brands for a stay or getting around, even with 13% of companies actively encouraging their use and the wider relaxation in policies.

Those travellers that do opt for alternative options say they do so because of a need for convenience, comfort or culture, Expedia Inc-owned Egencia’s report says.

Elsewhere in the study, nearly three out of ten travellers worldwide still feel that their corporate travel policy has become more restrictive, rising to 40% in the US.
