7 Most Common Stereotypes about Frequent Business Travel

People hearing those professionals who frequently travel for business reasons have a lot of assumptions. These range from the hotel they are staying in, the leisure they are getting aside from the intended business purpose to the overall “vacation” experience. In this article, we will list down the seven most common stereotypes made about them.

1. Plenty of Time for Leisure

7 Most Common Stereotypes about Frequent Business Travel

Maybe you have friends posting on social media about their business trips. The backgrounds, if you notice, would mostly consist of the touristy places that everyone raves about in the country. Seeing these photos and status messages about famous landmarks makes one envious. However, this must not mean that the person traveling for business has a lot of time for leisure. In fact, there are only a handful of places that are visited while the remaining majority has to be spent working with clients or training with colleagues. The time designated for leisure and fun during these trips is so minimal that the person just could not help but share about “good times” before they are over.

2. Desire to Stay Longer

When visiting a foreign country, the tendency for regular travellers is to like the feeling and idea of wandering around the place so much so that they want to stay there for more. Some people would not want to leave anymore, especially in countries in Europe. However, the reality for frequent business travellers is that the feeling is quite the opposite. Since they are traveling for business or work, the place must evoke a sense of pressure and stress to them. The area of travel is much remembered as where they should accomplish all their tasks before coming home.

3. Dining in Five-star Restaurants

Meeting with clients and vendors may allow them to dine in at posh restaurants and hotels, but this is not happening all the time. Companies which send out people for business or work reasons often set a budget for travel. In most cases, the budget cannot be stretched out further to accommodate dining to fancy and high-star restaurants. Frequent business travellers would save money as they are given only a limited amount of it. Also, they would have to report their expenses as they go back. As long as they are able to feed themselves, a decent canteen or food court may do just fine.

4. Learning More Cultures

People may think that when hopping from one country to another, frequent business travellers learn more cultures of ethnicities and different nations. But this is not entirely true. Since most time is devoted to the real purpose of the trip which is either work or serious business, communicating with locals and sharing cultures is not the focus. With the finite time they are present, rubbing elbows with them during meeting may be their only chance to share some personal stuff about themselves.

5. Riding on Nice Cars

Many assume that business travellers ride on nice cars all the time to impress clients and business folks. Instead of riding taxicabs, renting private cars or hiring a driver or chaperone to guide them in the travel, frequent business travellers would have more experiences and ideas to get them to places on their own. Commuting via public transportation is most ideal.

6. Enjoying Airport Stay

Airports are not a really good place to stay for long. Although they are equipped with nice lounge areas and reception areas, shopping stalls and dining establishments, travellers waiting for their flights feel bored, too. Frequent business travellers are already tired of having to fly from one country to another and they must also be tired worrying about luggage apart from keeping themselves safe while abroad. The least they want to experience is to be on a hospital bed after being severely stressed or badly injured.

7. Glamorous Shopping

People back home almost always expect their friend or family who are traveling even for business cause to get them unique things or souvenirs. Even if the traveler has gone to the country many times, they also feel guilty when returning to their home country without buying anything as a gift and remembrance. Frequent business travellers cannot afford to go glamorous shopping. Rather, these souvenir items are purchased mostly at the last minute—when they are in the airport or when they happen to stop by at a dainty shop before going to a meeting.

Conclusion:

Fancy dining, staying in at enormous and classy hotels and finding luxury are all common stereotypes that are linked to frequent business travellers. The reality is that with the limited budget they are provided with, they prefer to channel their resources to make themselves just safe and comfortable while in another place.
