The typical image one gets of a business trip stay is that dark room with a single bed, ugly orange covers, dull carpets and bleak curtains- right?

No smiling as you get dressed in your corporate outfit and have your black tea before the working day starts.

Dear business traveller, Jozi Apartments invites you to live a little, and yes you can do just that on your business trip.

These handy tips will surely change business trip stays for you in future.

Get a good night’s rest

Business travellers tend to overlook the importance of a good night’s rest.

When people are fatigued or sleep deprived, they simply don’t function as well. Sleep researchers have thoroughly documented through empirical study that lack of sleep creates impaired judgement, slower reaction times, greater errors, and an increased difficulty solving problems.

For example, did you know some research has shown that people who get 5 hours or less of sleep for a few nights in a row have the equivalent of a 0.1 blood alcohol level?

The obvious way to address this is sleep in a good quality bed that is synonymous with good quality lodging.

Make it an adventure

Escape City central, get away from the office blocks and explore the fun part of the town you are staying in when you have some free time.

We recommend you look for a non-traditional space in an area with stores and bars, to be able to experience the life of the city.

Go where the good food is

One cannot live of conference venue muffins and mints alone. We recommend you visit the most talked about food spots close to your lodging.

Get some fresh air—and a fresh perspective

Most business travellers spend allot of time in aeroplanes and stuffy conference rooms.

We advise that you make some time to go outdoor, get some fresh air and enjoy the view.

More oxygen brings greater clarity to the brain, which needs twenty percent of our body’s oxygen to function. When you breathe fresh air you can automatically think better as compared to when you remain inside a room for a longer period of time.

Retreat to a home away from home

Hotels costs mostly start at R1000 a night, why not be different and stay in homelike environment for so much less. Why not trade an expensive hotel for an accommodation setting that reminds you of home.

Bring the family

Traditionally, work trips mean time away from loved ones in unfamiliar places—but savvy business travellers are flipping the script. Why not pack the family while you are at it? This way your loved ones can be close to you and enjoy a change of scenery themselves.
