Preventing and overcoming accommodation nightmares – those problems you don’t think to ask about at the time of booking and unexpected surprises when you arrive at the property – is our expertise.
To help you with your own business travel bookings, we’ve shared 10 of the most common accommodation nightmares and our top tips on how to avoid them!
1. Cold Showers
Not something you think about at the time of booking, but something to always double check with your accommodation provider!
2. Long Travel Time
You don’t want a long drive back to your accommodation after a busy shift. Also be sure to check the distance to avoid additional costs.
3. Tolls & Bridge Roads
A quick internet search will prepare you for any tolls and bridge roads – and make sure you have plenty of change ready!
4. Incompatible Travellers
Make your own booking so you can retire to your own quiet, cosy room, with your own facilities, after a long day with ‘challenging’ colleagues.
5. No Wifi
Make sure that the accommodation not only has WiFi access, but it has a strong coverage. Also, look at phone signal strength too.
6. No Late Check In
Sometimes, when you have a long journey to make and shifts at various times, late check-in is a must! Always ask before booking.
7. Nowhere to Park?
You don’t want to arrive at your accommodation and find there isn’t ample parking for your work vehicle. Enquire about the options available.
The ultimate accommodation nightmare! Make sure you have your booking confirmation and what is included in your stay with you.
9. Make sure it actually exists!
Unbelievably, this happens.
Do your research, look up reviews and use trusted providers to make sure you’re not caught out.
10. Bad reviews
Reviews, good and bad, are imperative to your decision. The responses from the accommodation will give a great insight, too!
