Mix Business With Pleasure!

Four out of every 10 business travellers add extra days onto trips so they can enjoy personal travel without incurring the extra cost, new research has revealed.

Almost half (46%) of British businessmen and women also admit they try and choose a higher-rated or more expensive hotel when they travel for work than they would on personal trips they pay for themselves, according to the nationwide study by LateRooms.com.

One in 10 staff say they couldn’t possibly afford the same class of hotel on personal excursions that their employer funds routinely for work trips, according to the LateRooms.com poll of 2,000 businessmen and women.
And 22% admit they happily take advantage because someone else is paying. A further 13% say they always choose more expensive hotels while away on work because they have a generous budget.
Some 30% of those in relationships with British businessmen and women ‘hate’ when their partner goes on a work trip, the research reveals.

Some 6.5% of business travellers admit they always take their partner away on their work trips and 27% regularly take their partner with them whenever their schedules mean they are able.
