As soon as COVID-19 struck the globe, for many businesspeople, it felt as though the world was turned upside down. The workforce across the globe put a temporary end to business travel and began to work from home instead. Suddenly, all tasks were done virtually rather than in person. Now, business travel has resumed for many companies. So, what does this mean for you? Here is a glimpse at the latest on business travel during COVID-19, according to travel guru Brian Ferdinand in a recently published article.
COVID-19 and Travel
In the recently published article, Brian Ferdinand, the managing partner of SoBeNY, explains that business travel on a domestic level will likely pick up more quickly than international travel will amid the current COVID-19 pandemic. After all, the borders of many countries remain closed. On top of this, any countries that are still open for traffic by air have instituted mandatory14-day quarantines for all people visiting from today’s hotbed locations. Unfortunately, the United States is one of them.
Nonetheless, both domestic and international travel have the potential to strongly rebound in the future. What companies and their business travelers should do in the meantime is to make the most of the opportunities they have to embrace corporate travel and to do this in the safest manner possible. One way in which to do this is to book corporate housing units for business travelers.
Reasons for Choosing Corporate Housing Units While Traveling
A corporate housing unit is a temporary home that is designed to meet the unique needs of a business traveler—a person traveling for weeks to months at a time. Corporate housing stands out for its ability to make employees’ trips more comfortable in multiple ways.
For instance, corporate housing units are spacious, so they are often more welcoming and homey than traditional hotel rooms are. These units also come with full kitchens, furnishings, and other amenities that you likely won’t find in the hotel setting. These perks further make corporate housing units a top option for business travelers who would like to enjoy the closest thing to home while being potentially hundreds or thousands of miles away from home.
When business travelers are comfortable while on the road, they will likely be even more willing to work harder than ever before. And this will benefit both the productivity-loving traveler and his or her employer in the long run.
