Combine Business and Leisure while visiting Scotland

With business travel on the rise and many countries becoming ever more accessible, today’s travellers prefer to combine business and leisure for increased convenience. Employees travelling for work still want to experience the local culture and many are extending their stays to take in the sights and sounds of a new destination. To attract these customers, accommodation providers need to demonstrate they have the business essentials, such as good internet connection and workspace, but also offer ideas to explore the local area during their downtime.

With the emergence of new technologies such as facetime, skype and video conferencing you might think that face-to-face meetings would be a thing of the past but business travellers still value meeting their clients and suppliers in person.

Travel trends evolve constantly and with this so do the apps available. Some of the most popular apps today are Google Trips, which gathers all your travel information from Gmail and organises it automatically, working entirely offline.  Another great find is Rome2Rio which makes travel planning easy, providing route information from over 4,800 transport operators in over 158 countries. The app displays flight, train, bus, ferry and driving options with estimated travel times and fares. Such technological advances help business travellers to grab extra recreation time while away from home.

If you’re planning a trip to Scotland with work, why not schedule in some extra time to explore. Whether you have a few hours to yourself, or a few days with your partner or family, contact Little’s about our tailormade luxury tours.
