My travels take me to Houston almost weekly. A few years ago, the name board at Hertz’s Gold Club contained three full screens of names. For the past year and a half, it’s only been one screen of names. Once in a while I’ll see it go to two screens, but not often.
With many recent articles saying that business travel is picking up, I’ll fully believe it when my name goes back to the second board instead of the first. I hope it’s soon.
On a good note, the Marriott that I frequent has definitely shown a pickup in business this year. Maybe people just aren’t renting cars to get there?
