What is “bleisure” travel, I can hear you asking? (*1) “Bleisure” travel, sometimes referred to as bizcation, is when a business trip is extended, so that the business traveller can enjoy an additional period of leisure to reduce the usual stress of business travel.
This is a relatively new phenomenon, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, so let’s explore this, as a recent trend. The (*2) (*3) potential advantages and disavantages of creating “bleisure” travel policies within companies include the following:-
ADVANTAGES OF BLEISURE TRAVEL
DISADVANTAGES OF BLEISURE TRAVEL
According to (*4) Johnny Jet (Travel Editor), there is an increase of 20% in the incidence of “bleisure” trips, totalling 2.2 million in 2017. However, as mentioned previously, we are now living with COVID-19, which means that our way of life has changed in many different ways. Of course, travel in its different forms has altered, including travelling overseas, whether it is for business or for pleasure. There are now procedures and processes that we will have to follow at airports, restaurants and hotels to ensure the transmissibility of COVID-19 is reduced, and that as many people as possible are protected from infection. Aside from COVID-19, if travel is combined into a “bleisure” trip or not, no matter what your reason is for travelling, there is always going to be a need to know how to travel safely. The risks you face when journeying overseas, depend to some extent on the country to which you are travelling. However, we live in an age when risks from criminal activities exist in a multitude of forms and may even exhibit differently, depending on cultural nuances within the countries we visit.
At this point, none of us can predict how the world of travel will progress, but as there is a worldwide economy to preserve and protect, then logically business, vacation and “bleisure” travel will continue and increase, as the global recovery takes place. Therefore, our Travel Safety Plus training course is perfect for travellers, especially lone travellers, so that you can travel with confidence to the country of your destination. At Staff Defence, we design and customise our travel safety courses to meet the needs of corporate and leisure travellers, including a focus on cultural and criminal activities within certain destinations. We urge you to visit our website and review the Travel Safety Plus course, because we firmly believe that you and/or your company will find it greatly beneficial.
