Long-term business travellers have unique needs.

What is Long-term Travel?

More people are discovering the benefits and advantages of long-term travel instead of going home after just a few days or a week. Many hotels in Phuket have also noticed the growing trend of people booking long-term stays on the island. 

For sightseers and tourists, the benefits include cultural immersion, personal growth, and an expanded worldview. Long-term travel enables travellers to enjoy their time in a region without feeling rushed to see as much as possible in a short amount of time. They can relax and explore a location at their leisure, soak up the atmosphere, and feel like they truly got to know a destination. 

Business Benefits

For business travellers, there are many advantages of long-term travel, both financial and practical. From a financial standpoint, it’s often less expensive to send a company representative to a foreign country or continent and have them visit several offices on the same trip instead of bringing them all the way back home between office visits.  

Long-term travel advantages also include allowing the rep to develop more of a working relationship with the people they’re visiting and gain more of an honest appraisal of how the foreign office functions. It allows the rep a bit more of an opportunity to “peek behind the curtains” by being in the office for a few weeks instead of a few days. The long-term business traveller also has the opportunity to conduct a series of training sessions, seminars or classes when they’re in one region for a few weeks at a time. 

Downsides of Long-term Travel

But for all the advantages of long-term travel for both pleasure and business travellers, being away from home for weeks or months at a time can also take a toll. 

Both long-term pleasure and business travellers can start to miss the comforts of home, especially the food. They often tire of having to eat all their meals in restaurants and long to come back to their own kitchen after a long day and prepare comfort food that reminds them of home. 

Returning to a single room of four walls and a bed can also get depressing after weeks of travel. Many visitors would prefer to stretch out in a comfortable living area, put their feet up and feel like they’re in the comfort of their own homes.

Food and laundry expenses can also add up quickly, especially for business travellers who have to maintain office attire. For both pleasure and business guests, the chance to take care of your food and laundry yourself by booking accommodation with a kitchenette and laundry facilities has a definite appeal.

Long-term pleasure travellers want comfort.
