Market research company TNS recently conducted a survey of business travelers for Marriott’s Fairfield Inn & Suites.
“We know very little about the emotional state of frequent business travelers and were surprised how positive travel was for their lives,” said Fairfield Inn & Suites VP Shruti Buckley.
According to USA Today, the top findings from the survey include:
- Experiencing new places- followed by meeting new people and dining- are the most enjoyable aspects of business travel, most business travels said.
- Nearly half find the most enjoyable aspect of business travel is earning miles or points in airline, hotel and car-rental programs. Not going into the office was most enjoyable for 36%.
- A majority of business travelers- 88%- feel ‘a positive emotion’ when preparing for a business trip. Half feel confident, and 48% feel knowledgeable as they prepare.
