Business travel made easy
According to Hilton Hotels & Resorts, 75 percent of young professionals consider business travel to be a perk. But, although it can be appealing, business travel is not always a luxury. Here are some ways to ensure the trip is a pleasant one.
1. Add pleasure to your business
Most millennials understand that business travel means work, but they also want to take some time for themselves. By allowing millennials to take an extra day or two for personal time, employers stand to provide a valued perk.
2. Book experiential lodging
According to flight-finding site Hipmunk, 74 percent of millennials have stayed at a vacation rental instead of a hotel on a business trip. Airbnb and VRBO places can give millennials a homey place to stay that allows them to cook and kick back.
3. Maximize your credit card points
Discover says that millennials redeem credit card rewards for travel more than any other group. In many cases, using the right card and then redeeming rewards at the right time can get you free hotel stays, upgrades and more. Sites like Thepointsguy.com can help you maximize your reward cards.
4. Keep an eye on your health
One of the most overlooked factors in business travel is health. Fitness apps like Runkeeper and Strava provide reminders and help track workouts. Meditation apps like Headspace and Calm can help sustain your meditation practice.
