Bleisure – when business travellers decide to add on some leisure time to their trips – has been a trend that has risen steadily over the last few years. If a business meeting, conference or wider business trip is in an appealing location, it makes sense to make the most of it by tagging on a little extra time.
Many business travellers agree, with at least a third of business travellers planning to include a leisure element to a business trip this year, according to the Global Business Travel Association. While some decide to stay an extra day or two for some ‘me’ time, others bring their families and stay for an extra week. What’s more, business travellers have found employers to be very supportive of the idea, particularly given the increasing focus on employee wellbeing among businesses.
The Runnymede on Thames is a popular destination for both business and leisure travellers – making it perfect for bleisure guests too. Here’s why.
