Comdata: Hotel network saved drivers $800k in 2016

Carrier payment provider Comdata announced this week its Comdata Hotel Network has saved fleets and drivers approximately $800,000 with nearly 50,000 nights stayed since the program launched in December 2015, for an average savings of $15 to $20 per night.

The network includes a mobile app that allows drivers to identify locations in route, review the nightly rate and savings offered by each property and screen for on-site truck parking. By using a Comdata card, drivers do not need to carry cash or pay with personal credit cards.

More than 12,000 hotels and lodging locations participate in the network, Comdata says.
