Addressing Transportation Needs

It’s important that your assignees have safe, secure, and efficient transportation that is appropriate based upon common practices in their host location.  AIRINC helps you understand the costs and determine the appropriate allowance, regardless of whether the assignee will:

  • Own a Car – including capital or leasing costs and loan guarantees for petrol/gas-powered cars and electric vehicles
  • Maintain a Car – including fuel, electricity (for charging electric vehicles), maintenance, insurance, taxes and fees
  • Use Public Transportation – considering available alternate means such as bus, subway, taxi, ride share, etc.

AIRINC’s Transportation Data:

  • Is powered by our reliable on-site data, which is collected by our own in-house professional staff
  • Aligns with each company’s needs by offering multiple solutions and the ability to customize
  • Reflects valuable input from global assignees about typical usage and the availability and quality of transportation options, collected via our Pattern-of-Living Questionnaire
  • Reflects assumptions based upon common practices

Transportation Reports

Assignment Transportation and Global Mobility Best Practices:

Transportation systems vary widely across locations. Do you know what to provide for your international assignees? How much will it cost?

Our unmatched on-the-ground expertise is now available to you in the form of a Transportation Report. We combine car purchase and operating expense data to provide a reliable, up-to-date overview of common transportation costs in a given location so you can make well-informed transportation policy decisions. Our research and reports include data for both gas/petrol-powered cars and electric vehicles.

Each Transportation Report Includes:

An Auto Capital Cost Report providing a representative range of car prices across compact, moderate, premium, SUV, and luxury vehicles, for both gas/petrol-powered cars and electric vehicles. (Also available as a standalone report.)

A Vehicle Cost Analysis Report (VCAR) using reasonable assumptions regarding financing, down payments, and distance driven to provide average operating costs per year and per kilometer for an average car. Models estimate the electricity costs required to operate electric vehicles.

Going somewhere to work, live, or simply visit?  Do you know how best to get around town?

Based on our survey data and on-site experience, AIRINC has developed a calculator for 30 world cities to help you assess what the most cost-effective option is for you, based on your family size, duration of stay, commuting distance, and typical practice. Our goal is to leverage our data to help you make the best decision for yourself or your business. Click here to take it for a test drive!
