Uber in Mexico City
In the world of business travel, especially international business travel, convenience and security (and frequent travel program benefits) are paramount to the business traveler as well as the company. This couldn’t be more evident than in my last trip to Mexico City.
While I do like some adventure and will actually use the Metro in Mexico City (which most business travelers will not), there is a lot to be said for having confidence in the brands that you use. For me, there are a few brands that I very much trust when traveling to Mexico:
American Express: from the club in the airport with WiFi and a free beer, to the travel rewards, to the knowledge that if there is any issue (a stolen or lost card or an issue with a provider) I can count on them to resolve it.
American Airlines: Yes, we have our differences from time to time, and I still hold out hope for an SFO to MEX direct route sometime in the future, but having Elite level status most definitely makes travel easier.
