  1. Yes, this is for work so the expense is billable.
    But I did consider buying, expensing the mileage and selling once the work is over.
    However, there were too many hassles involved, such as:
    - Researching, shopping around, test driving, inspection, title transfer, etc.
    - Hassle and cost of re-selling again
    - Still doesn't work around the issue of using my own insurance coverage
    - Maintenance on the car in the meantime (approx. 350 kms. drive each day)
    - My personal money blocked-up unproductively until I re-sell and recover the balance

    I figured financially there would be a very marginal benefit (if any at all) in buying and re-selling.
    With renting (incl. CDW), I walk away once the gig is over with no net change in my financial situation as a result of the out-of-town gig.
