Horeca

Driving is increasingly becoming a preferred mode of business travel for regional trips, according to a new national business travel survey. In fact, more than 65% of business travelers surveyed said they’ve taken a short-haul driving trip — 300 miles or less — in the past year.

More than four out of 10 (44% of respondents) regional business travelers who drive say they’re taking more driving trips than in the past. Among those taking more short-haul driving trips, top reasons included: saving money (78%); reduced flight choices (39%); and changes in company policies (38%).

The survey also uncovered other benefits among those getting behind the wheel, including time to think (86%); feeling in control of their personal schedules (84%); building relationships with co-workers (75%); and the basic enjoyment of driving (50%).
