London is one of Europe’s most visited cities. With its history and popular tourist attractions, the city is commonly thought of as a classic ‘city break’ destination for holidaymakers. Now, there is a new type traveller – the ‘Bizcationer’.
A Bizcation occurs when a business traveller extends their trip over the weekend so that they can make the most of the destination they are in.
Because London has both a thriving tourist industry and a high volume of business traffic, it’s become one of the most popular Bizcation destinations in the world.
Business travellers that use Airbnb are found to stay twice as long as as business travellers that use more traditional accommodations. Because we see a surge in business tourism during the Autumn months, it is set to be the biggest Bizcation season to date.
More and more business travellers are opting to use Airbnb. With the Global Business Travel Association predicting business travel spend to advance 5.8 per cent over the next five years, London’s traffic from the growing Bizcation trend is set to increase.
Hosts can benefit hugely from this trend by ensuring that their Airbnb property is ‘Business Travel Ready’. To take the hassle out of creating the perfect business stay, hosts may consider a host management service.
