Business travellers often view their trips more as leisure than work, according to a new survey.

Bristol Airport commissioned a survey of 1,000 employees and found that they viewed 42 percent of their trips as leisure rather than business.

The survey also found that the vast majority (86 percent) said they generally enjoyed work travel and 60 percent admitted that they used business trips as an opportunity to visit new places, thus expanding their horizons.

Far from being an inconvenience to many workers, business travel is largely seen as a positive as employees enjoy high standards of business accommodation, such as serviced apartments and luxury hotels. Work travel also enables them to visit countries that would be beyond their reach in their day-to-day lives.

BUSINESS TRAVELBristol Airport’s Business Development Director, Nigel Scott, said that the term ‘Bleisure’ has been coined to describe trips that offer a break from the humdrum working life for many business travellers.

He explained: “Previously passengers would arrange business travel involving for one or two nights away, but increasingly we are seeing passengers selecting three or more nights stays, in some cases this allows passengers the opportunity of relaxing and enjoying time in and around the destination they are visiting.”
