Anything in particular I need to watch out for if I rent a car for a personal vacation using my firm’s corporate code? It’s saving me like a thousand bucks over rack rate but curious if I’m opening myself up to any real liability. I’ve done it before for short trips but this will be a month and my wife will be driving for half of it.

You should add your wife as a secondary driver and make sure to pay with a credit card that has insurance on it. They’ll charge a fee for the second driver.

K1 - Wife probably isn’t included on the Corp code. It only covers employees.
P1 - oddly, insurance coverage spouse for some plans, but not other immediate family.

Check to make sure you are using a code you can use for leisure travel. I know EY has separate codes for leisure vs business travel. You could get in trouble if it’s meant for just business travel but if not you’re good

ACN also has leisure codes. Using the Corp code for non business travelers is a risk. You may not receive insurance if anything happens, as you’re not traveling for work. That would also snap your rates back to Rack. If you use a CC with insurance, you have to waive LDW, but it’s included in your Corp rate, so your CC insurance won’t apply either.
