From ensuring you’re as close to the airport as possible by perhaps lodging in one of the few airport hotels available to perhaps even using a targeted shuttle service that services specific places of accommodation like Stansted airport hotels, I truly believe that every traveller should get a taste of what it means to organise your trip like a business traveller at least once. Business travellers are just that much more organised, but it goes way beyond organisation.
You may not be all too aware of it and you may take it rather lightly, but there’s a very good reason why when you book your accommodation through the most popular of online booking platforms that you often get the option to select whether you’re travelling for business or for leisure. I know that most people don’t even bother to say which type of traveller they are, myself included, but there’s a lot more to it than just making for another means through which the booking platform can collect statistics and data on their users.
Of course the data collected is mainly just so that they can make the platform better in future, but it goes way beyond that with furnishing information of whether or not you’re travelling for business.
I wouldn’t go as far as claiming them to be discount deals, but the special offers which are the preserve of business travellers can sometimes come in really handy on any type of getaway. Travellers who go ahead and indicate that they are travelling for business purposes are generally perceived to require special travel related services of which their reliability is not left to chance, so if you’ve indicated that you’re a business traveller you might get a special offer such as that of getting picked up in a special airport shuttle or even something like a limousine.
Since most business travellers are sponsored by their companies however, they often get a lot more perks for which the bill is footed by the company.
If you organise your trip like a business traveller would, you leave nothing to chance. Business travellers often have to be at a certain place at a certain time and so they make sure everything is in order long before departure time. If you practice this way of organising your trips, your plans A to D will have you always arriving on time and even having time to enjoy a lot of the complementary perks that come with being early, like free drinks maybe and the likes.
Making the Most of Your Leisure Time
It’s very rare to find a trip that’s completely about business and affords the traveller absolutely no time at all for leisure. Business travellers know how to make the most of the little leisure time they sometimes get and if you take this approach to enjoying your leisure trip, you will be in for a really fun time since the leisure side of things is all you’re travelling for. You might find that you sleep very little because of all the activities you find the time and energy to engage in, making your trip that much more memorable.
