Executive Travel : Runzheimer Business Travel Price Index

Los Angeles Times

The set of indexes measures changes in the cost of business travel--air fares, meals, lodging and car rental--on a quarterly basis. The index equaled 100 in 1988. The overall price index fell 8.1% during the second quarter, primarily as a result of a nearly 20% drop in business discount fares. Meals and lodging costs were relatively flat, while auto rental rates rose about 2%.
