- RECRUITING TRAVEL POLICY
Enterprise rentals have a “prepaid” gas price which is $.10 – $.15 cheaper than gas station prices. Enterprise will automatically fill the vehicle upon return and bill us on the rental contract.
In addition, Enterprise has a drop box for keys when the rental is turned in after business hours. Be sure to lock the vehicle when dropping it off. The lock box is located just outside the Enterprise door.
Meals and Lodging
The maximum amount allowable for meal reimbursement is $38.25 for first and last day of travel with itemized receipts, including tax and tips. Tips may not exceed 15 percent.
The maximum standard rate for lodging has increased to $91 per day for all locations within the State without specified rates. Rates for Little Rock (Pulaski County) will increase to $94 while Hot Springs (Garland County) will remain $101. The rate for meals and tips remains the same, $51 per day while traveling in State, and $59 per day if traveling to Little Rock (Pulaski County) and Hot Springs (Garland County). Meal and tip reimbursement is allowed only in connection with overnight travel, whether in state or out of state, unless “special authorization” under ACA 19-4-903 is given in writing by the agency director.
The maximum amount allowable for meal reimbursement without receipts is $20 per day for first and last day of travel, and $30 per day for all other days.
