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.
