Orbitz July Business Travel Survey
Orbitz returned more interesting results in their July business travel survey. Check it out:
How much would you pay to have bags shipped ahead of time when taking a trip?
- Would pay $25 – 30%
- Would pay $50 – 14%
- Would pay $75 – 6%
- Would pay $100 – 6%
- Would pay $200 – 1%
- Not interested in the service – 44%
If you’re a FREQUENT business traveler on the road two weeks or more of the month, it seems like your bags would never catch up. Being an uber traveler myself, I go with the majority who would pass.
How much of your annual leisure travel costs (not including spending money) would you estimate are paid for by being a frequent business traveler, such as free airline tickets through mileage programs, hotel stays though loyalty points, etc.?
- 0-10% – 58%
- 10-25% – 22%
- 25-50% – 15%
- 50-75% – 4%
- 75-100% – 1%
That whopping 58% must have Northwest WorldPerks miles they can’t get rid of like me.
Most business hotels today offer Wi-Fi access and Internet service to make working while traveling easier. How many hours per day would you estimate you spend working outside of normal business hours when traveling?
- 0-1 – 27%
- 2 – 36%
- 3 – 23%
- 4 – 7%
- More than 4 hours – 7%
I would fall in to the first category, besides the countless hours I spend writing this stuff.
Assume you have a business trip to a popular vacation destination. Would you prefer to bring your spouse/significant other with you (assuming you are responsible for their travel costs) or to travel alone?
- Bring a spouse/significant other – 72%
- Travel alone – 28%
Bet you can tell who likes their spouses. I would definitely take a significant other – if I had one.
What about you? What would you do?
