A day in a business traveller’s life

18 Apr 2018

When you’re travelling on business, every second counts. You’ve probably already scheduled your primary meetings before you left, your hire car has been booked, and your accommodation is already sorted out. However, no matter how well organised you are and how far ahead you plan, there are always those times when the best-laid plans and schedules can go awry. Minimising the impact a change in schedule can have on your trip is vital. But it’s also important to have a degree of flexibility just in case, and also to make sure you put at least a couple of hours aside for relaxing, too.

Premier Inn – the business community’s first choice for exceptional facilities

From the moment you wake up to the moment you drop back into a comfortable bed at the end of a busy day, you need to be at the top of your game. The best way to make sure you make the most of your time here is to pick a base that offers you not just a comfortable room and soft bed, but a wide range of other business-focused facilities too. What would make your business trip even more enjoyable?

A great breakfast

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, and at Premier Inn you can get your day off to a great start in our delicious on-site restaurants. If you and your business colleagues like to get to work straight away then why not arrange a business breakfast?

Early Bird Business deals

Plan your trip up to 30 days in advance and you could benefit from the Premier Inn’s Early Bird Business deal, giving you a 25% discount on your stay in any Premier Inn in the UAE or Qatar.  There’s no reason why the family shouldn’t come along too, even if you are going to be busy with business meetings during your stay. With free stays and free breakfasts for kids, a business trip can double up as a family break too, without breaking the bank.

Conference facilities and meeting rooms

Rather than travelling around to get to meetings, why not bring the meeting to you? At Premier Inn you have the choice of extensive business suites and meeting rooms where you can hold a high-level meeting in complete confidence. We’ll provide refreshments and all the facilities you need, including power connections for OHPs and PowerPoint presentations, fax facilities, and free Wi-Fi connection.

Getting out and about

Because Premier Inn hotels in the UAE and Qatar are right in the heart of the city, it’s easy to get to your meeting. Ask the Concierge to book a taxi whenever you need one, or check to see if there are courtesy shuttle services to major conference venues and events.

Long Stay – for those longer business stop-overs

Sometimes a business trip can be much more than just an overnight stop and a quick handshake over breakfast! If your business keeps you here for more than five nights then why not book in advance online, and get a 20% discount, early check-ins and a great deal on your breakfast each morning? Long stay business deals make it more affordable to spend more time in the UAE, and even give yourself extra time for a little sightseeing too.

Seal the deal over a great meal

Premier Inn is renowned for its quality and affordable prices, and that includes the extensive menu of dishes served in our restaurants. Business deals are often struck over a good meal, so why not entertain your partners, sign those contracts, and have a great meal all at the same time? Meal deals mean you won’t bust your budget, either, keeping those expense claims down.

A little ‘you time’

Once the business is done for the day, why not use the facilities at Premier Inn to relax and unwind? Work out in fully equipped gyms or swim a few lengths in the pool – whatever you want to help you relax is on offer at Premier Inn.

Heading home

Don’t worry about early check-out times – if you book ahead then you can take advantage of a late check-out so there’s no rushing around. With Premier Inn hotels close to the region’s major airports too, you’re just a short walk or courtesy shuttle drive from the check-in desk. From there it’s a quick walk to the plane and you’re on your way home.
