12 Productivity Tips to Use Your Travel Time Wisely

[fa icon="calendar'] 22-Jun-2017 14:11:39 / by Kate Jackson posted in Corporate Travel, Business Travel

Travelling for work can have quite a few perks, but it also presents its own set of challenges. Top of the list: staying productive while in transit. Life doesn’t stop while you’re away from your desk and the best way to keep up is to make time on the road. All too often, business travellers mentally check out as soon as they check in at the airport. But instead of writing off the pre-boarding process as a black hole for productivity, make the most of that free time and check a few things off your to-do list. Here’s how.

Boutique vs. Franchise hotels: 4 things you need to know

[fa icon="calendar'] 02-Mar-2017 10:00:00 / by Kate Jackson posted in Roomex News

Boutique hotels and franchise are remarkably different business models despite effectively offering and identical service. The boutique hotel is predicated on freedom and flexibility, the opportunity for adventure and the chance to experience a different (often, more personalised) mode of hospitality to what you may typically expect. Franchise hotels offer something almost diametrically opposed to this philosophy. They are presented as a known-quantity, with a high standard of luxury and service which can be replicated the world over. With this, the customer can feel a sense of familiarity and as if the hotel is a home-from-home, thousands of miles away.

Recent rises and falls in business sentiment have been reflected in the amount of business related travel being carried out by company executives. As the recession bit, and costs were cut, approval for business related travel was slashed across all industries but recent reports suggest this reactionary policy was a mistake.
