For some of us, business travel is a necessity and can often be a chore. For others, a meeting outside of work can be a great excuse to leave the office and potentially see more of the world. The global hotel company InterContinental Hotels Group have put together an interesting set of facts and figures detailing the habits of today’s UK business travellers.
The (predominantly) male business travellers in the UK prefer to fly with British Airways, with EasyJet not far behind, and FlyBe a distant third. Those choices are governed by the convenience of the airport’s location, the flight timings, and the price.
Business travellers from the UK don’t like to slum it – 38% opt to stay in a three star hotel, 43% in a four star, and 10% in five star luxury. Only 2% opt for a one star hotel! Technology is a key factor in UK business traveller’s lives – 42% of them could not live without the internet on their mobile phone, and they are most likely to have property, sport, banking and travel apps installed.
Worryingly for the health of those UK business travellers, 43% are worried about work during their leisure time, and 62% believe there’s not enough hours in the day to do everything they need to. Here’s the infographic in full – it makes for interesting reading!
