At Ease

At Ease is a short-term rental site for federal and military personnel who are on official travel.
At Ease is an online travel agency which provides a listing of federally compliant short-term rentals for official travel, as federal, military, and government contractors are currently prohibited from using short-term rental website to book lodging during official travel. Additionally, transient members traveling with a family have limited suitable temporary lodging that can be use due to regulations outlined in the Joint Travel Regulations.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

At Ease is distinguished from other products/services because of its ability as a platform to be integrated with federal and Department of Defense travel booking systems. This accessibility increases the use of short rentals on At Ease's site. Travelers are available to book directly from federal booking platforms.
Additionally, all properties listed are in compliance with Joint Travel Regulations and General Services Administration Travel regulations for its members to use during official travel.
