How Business and Leisure Travel are Getting Blended Together in 2022

These past few years, a new trend in the field of business travel has emerged. More and more employees are taking advantage of combining business and leisure travel adventures. In fact, this trend is common among young generations who want to gain the benefits of bleisure. So, here are some ways to mix business with leisure travel.

What is Bleisure?

Bleisure is a popular travel trend today. As its name implies, it is a way of blending business with leisure travel. Currently, there are two types of bleisure travel. The first one is a business trip that you can extend so that you can relax and unwind. The other kind is a business trip you can take with family or friends.

Ways to Mix Business with Leisure Travel

Spend Time with Family or Friends

A simple way to blend business and leisure travel is to spend your downtime with family or friends. For instance, you may have friends at your destination. You can contact them ahead of time so that you and your friends can have a get-together after your business meetings.

Another good option is to bring a family or friend with you. The good news is that you can now make arrangements so that you can bring someone on your business trip. The additional cost for the flight and accommodation can be paid separately.

Include Extra Days to Your Trip

When you’re taking a business trip for a week, one of the best ways to mix business with leisure travel is to include extra days to your trip. For instance, your business trip is scheduled on Thursday or Friday. You can include the weekend in your travel itinerary. That way, you have extra days after your meeting to explore your destination. You will have to pay additional fees for the additional day. Still, the extra charges will be worth it because you get to relax and unwind after you’ve completed your work.

Add a Side Trip

One of the best ways to mix business with leisure travel is to add a side trip. This method is common for those going on international business trips. For example, if you’re headed to Europe for business, you can also visit another European country after your business trip. You can also bring your family for an exciting vacation. The best part is that you can use your business travel perks, like frequent flyer points, to combine your business and leisure booking.

There can be complications that come with ‘bleisure’, however, Depending on company policy, you may not be allowed to extend a business trip or do anything outside of your scheduled travel itinerary for work. It all depends on the company you are traveling for. We have been on press trips where the agency who put it together was happy to allow us time around the trip, and there have been many that are afraid of a liability issue while doing so, so they do not allow it. So, be sure to check with the company you are traveling for prior to scheduling any fun time around a work trip.
