A business traveler’s requirements are so much more different compared to some who is traveling for leisure. You need to be sure that you get the most comfortable and yet flexible lodging facilities. Do here are a few tips to make it easier for you.
Business travelers should always book apartments on a monthly rental contract. If your contract is one year or two years then it may be applicable to go for a 6 month leasing agreement but it is always safe to stay on month-to-month contract.
Check the surrounding properties
The only way to know if the price you being offered is fair is by checking the price ratings of the nearby properties. If the rent you are required to pay is 10% than what the surrounding landlords are requesting then you many want to reconsider.
The security deposit
Whether it’s a monthly rental or a year one this is always a crucial aspect when making your booking. When renting a unit you will be required to set down a deposit that will be returned to you at the end of the lease agreement. For example the deposits can a 6 month rent payment, one monthly rent as deposit or a two month lease for a 24 month long lease. If there is any evidence of damage to the property by you then the owner does have the right to take the deposit to cover the damages but keep in mind if there are any shady deals like a high deposit and low rent then you should avoid them.
This is something that often gets missed when signing the agreement. This allows you to make any calculations of the lease without losing the security deposit you made. For example if you agree to a 6 month lease but then you get re-located in 3 months and therefore you need to cancel the lease. This clause can have conditions like being able cancel with a 2 month notice or one month notice without you losing the security deposit. So always check for this in the agreement.
Beside this you will need to think about whether you want a furnished apartment or not. For a business traveler a furnished apartment would definitely be less costly because you wouldn’t have to worry about spend time or money on finding furniture, kitchen appliances and utensils. These are definitely more traveler friendly apartments and definitely less costly when compared to staying in a hotel. Keep in mind that you should find a place close by to the office or conference hall you need to go to during you stay. This can save up your travel costs.

How to make good use of a holiday
There are many ways to chill when we get a day off from work. The first thing that might come to our minds is that we are going to sleep the whole day away. It seems tempting indeed to make optimum use of any free days you get to sleep and be lazy. It would be a pleasant change from having to wake up early in the morning and rush off to work or school. However, there are other more productive and interesting ways in which you can chill and enjoy an extra holiday other than sleeping throughout the day.
Spend quality time with friends and family
You can make use of the day off to spend some time with nature. When was the last time you set out on a nice long and solitary walk through the park? You can pack yourself a picnic and take a stroll through the nearest park. The verdant surroundings, the joyful chirping of birds and the sight of little children playing can help you feel relaxed as well as bring a smile to your face. You can also use the day off, to catch up with friends. You can explore the newest cake shops in town, while you catch up on each other’s lives.
Further, this is a perfect excuse to try out the treats at the coffee and cake shops in your locality. You spend hours over a sweet treat in harmless gossip and ranting to help you let off some steam and chill for a change. You can also put your holiday to good use by visiting a few elderly relatives. They might be home alone and longing for company. You might be too busy and tired on other days to visit with them. Therefore, grab this opportunity to spend some quality time with them.
Take up some aesthetic endeavors
You can also use the day off to indulge in some aesthetic pursuits. You can curl up with a good book and immerse yourself in tales of history, romance and science. You can also take time to just close your eyes and listen to some music that will soothe your nerves and wash away the stress. If you are able to play an instrument of music or are skilled in painting or sewing, you can use the extra time to develop your talents and produce some fine pieces of music or art. Further, if you enjoy culinary ventures, you can check online for a few new recipes and try out novel dishes that you can enjoy with family or friends. Therefore, the next time you have a free day, don’t waste it by sleeping the whole day. Make it memorable and productive.
