Global Business Travel and Serviced Accommodation

Business Travel; a journey made specifically by someone with the purpose of work on behalf of a company, avoiding activities associated with other forms of travel, such as leisure.

The key to executing any global business travel plan effectively and efficiently is securing a base, a place to stay which a corporate traveller can call home. Business travel accommodation, in the form of high-quality serviced apartments is the perfect solution, enabling this part of the corporate travel management to be smooth and hassle-free.

WHAT IS BUSINESS TRAVEL?

Rates of global business travel are at their highest in the last decade. In fact, the act of travelling as a corporate for work-related reasons has become so popular, it has grown to become a modern-day industry, separate from leisurely or holiday vacationing.

Business travel has been around for as long as people have traded and made deals with one another, but its true popularity came with the introduction of fairly priced flights in the nineteenth century. Nowadays, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) says that around 30% of international trips are for business.  

With popularity comes a great expectation from corporate travellers who want their global business travel to be the best it can be, putting value upon costs, accommodation, transport and travel spending and convenience throughout their browsing experience.

WHAT IS THE IDEAL BUSINESS TRAVEL ACCOMMODATION OPTION?

When it comes down to picking the perfect business travel accommodation; no alternative compares to serviced apartments. Space, comfort, and value for money are all considered ‘part of the furniture’ in serviced accommodation; all essential features able to improve your experience and better the offer of a standard business hotel.

Global business travellers can expect their business accommodation to include the following facilities and services;

  • Wi-Fi and Internet connection access
  • TVs
  • Laundry facilities (Washing machine and Dryer)
  • Linen and Towels
  • Housekeeping Service (Ranging from daily to fortnightly)
  • Available Parking

As well as these expectations, corporates on the move should assume that they will be offered a bespoke product and service that suits what they need to cater to their business travel management.
