Just because you’re traveling on business doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself and make your trip as comfortable as possible. There are many ways to add luxury to any business trip. It just takes some creative planning before you leave home. Let’s look at some of the best ways to make sure your next business trip is more like a vacation.

Combine Business and Pleasure

If your business trip is to an exciting or scenic destination, you may be able to plan a vacation around it. After the business part of the trip is over, you could stay a few extra days and turn it into a pleasure trip. This saves you money, as you’re already at your vacation destination. This also takes some planning, but it might be a good strategy to plan your next vacation around a business trip.

Take Advantage of Convenient Travel Programs

If you travel on business frequently, it’s advantageous to use the same airlines as much as possible. This lets you accumulate travel miles so you can upgrade your flights, and even get free flights. It’s also worthwhile to join travel clubs that give you access to airport lounges. Choosing the right credit cards also makes a big difference when traveling. Identify credit card deals that provide generous travel miles and lounge access.

Stay in a Luxury Apartment Instead of a Hotel

A luxury furnished apartment gives you more of a homelike experience while you’re staying somewhere. If you’re visiting New York on business, for example, consider staying in a furnished corporate apartment in New York City rather than a hotel. Places like Corporate Habitat offer fully furnished apartments with housewares and appliances, conveniently located in great neighborhoods.

Get Through Security Faster

It’s hard to enjoy your business trip when you have to wait in long TSA lines. It’s worth the trouble to join programs such as TSA Pre-check, which allow low-risk passengers to get through security much faster. This program has a fee, but it’s less than $100 for five years. If you travel internationally, apply for Global Entry, which provides expedited entry into the United States.

When planning your business travel, don’t miss any opportunities to make your trip more enjoyable. Frequent travelers should take advantage of as many helpful travel programs as possible. Research your destinations and make sure you leave time for some sightseeing and fun along with your business responsibilities. Arrange for accommodations that are not just functional, but also luxurious. These steps will transform your business trips into excursions you’ll actually look forward to.
