The Latest Trends Business Travellers Desire

Growing Trends In The World Of Business Travel

As the term implies, business or corporate travel refers to travelling for business purposes. For example, travelling to various branches of the same company, meeting suppliers or business partners in another part of the country or world, and attending business events and conferences. However, at least one overnight stay is required in order for a trip to be considered business travel.

Thanks to the reduced spread of COVID-19, business travel is on the rise once again. Hotels and airlines are slowly starting to make their way back to business as it was pre-COVID and with the “rebirth” of business travel comes new business travel trends. Read on to find out more about them.

The Latest Business Travel Trends

Bleisure Travel

This portmanteau combines the words “business” and “leisure,” which is the biggest trend in business travel right now. Thanks to this new movement, hotels such as The Capital 15 On Orange are equipped with a modern venue that allows lots of natural light, complemented by a spectacular restaurant with high-end finishings. If you’re in Cape Town for bleisure, we recommend booking a room here for the best of both worlds.


Personalised Experiences

We know that business travel can sometimes make one feel lonely, and that’s why here at The Capital Hotels and Apartments, we offer carefully curated experiences to keep you entertained after work without incurring additional expenses. The entertainment programs at our various hotels ensure convenience at the tip of your finger. If this sounds like your ideal business travel accommodation, you need to make your next booking at The Capital Hotels and Apartments.


Sharing Is Caring

The spirit of sharing is being tapped into by business travellers in a variety of ways, one being through room sharing. Although larger companies can comfortably foot the bill for separate rooms, start-ups and new entrepreneurs may not have such an abundance when it comes to their travel budget yet. In this instance, sharing a room provides financial and social benefits. The Capital Hotels and Apartments have a variety of stylish and affordable room options available throughout South Africa, so you can get the most out of your travel budget, no matter where you are in the country.


Catered To Your Lifestyle

While the concept of “bleisure” is expanding, it’s important to remember that many business travellers travel frequently and will want to keep some aspect of their regular routine rather than view travel as an opportunity to overindulge. Therefore, healthy options must be provided. All The Capital Hotels and Apartments are equipped with gyms and pools so you can stay active. We also have a wide variety of healthy dishes and will gladly cater to your dietary requirements.


A Dedicated Workspace And Reliable Internet

A typical business traveller would ideally require a room they can work and rest in. The Capital Hotels and Apartments have rooms with dedicated workspaces and fast, reliable internet, so you can conduct those important online meetings with confidence. This is also convenient when it comes to staying in touch with your loved ones while you’re away and perhaps enjoying a little downtime by streaming your favourite online content.


Shuttle Services To Get Around Town

Although your company may cover all your travel expenses, it’s always helpful to save some money where possible. This doesn’t mean you need to cut corners and impact the enjoyment of your stay. Instead, you can enjoy even more convenience with a trusted shuttle service when you book a room at The Capital Hotels and Apartments. Our dedicated shuttle service will drop you off at selected tourist-friendly sites that aren’t too far from the hotel, so you can easily make your way back when you’re ready.


The Bottom Line

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is the importance of having a work/life balance. Here at The Capital Hotels and Apartments, we understand the importance of playing as hard as you work, so our facilities are designed to accommodate business and leisure. Book a room today to discover the best in business travel accommodation.
