BLeisure means combining business and leisure when initially traveling on business. Many people take advantage of the airfare and hotel costs being covered and add some extra time at their cost to their business trips for R and R. It is easy to make the most of those days for business and leisure with a little advanced planning.
Adding days for business and leisure
Saturday and Sunday are most common, but consider weekdays for less crowded destinations, open tables at restaurants, available tour seats, and a better chance for last-minute theater tickets. Extend your business and leisure trip by adding available vacation days to explore the region.
If you can’t add days to your trip, use hours. Take an early walk around your hotel. A hometown café is ideal for breakfast, coffee, and local conversation. It is more rewarding than the hotel breakfast and lets you see some of the city’s scenery.
During free evening hours, explore new places,have dinner at a recommended restaurant, attend a concert or theater show, take a sunset walk, or work from a different inspiring location such as a garden, museum coffee shop, or pub.
Select the right hotel for business and leisure
Choose a hotel with high-speed Wi-Fi, an in-room workspace, and a business center for your business needs. A pool, sauna, and gym are lovely leisure amenities. Pick lodging near activities you want to experience. A hotel concierge is a valuable resource for food, libations, shopping, and entertainment information.

Benefits of Business and Leisure Trips
Employers and employees are learning the benefits of combining business and leisure travel. When a couple of days for personal adventure is added to a business trip, most folks are eager to get on the road. You get your work done, then experience vacation time to relax, explore, and immerse yourself in a destination’s food, wine, art, music, history, and nature.
So before planning that next business trip, consider adding a day or two just for you.
