We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Maybe the wait time is too long and you’re going to miss your next meeting, or perhaps it’s a surprisingly busy time and the surge pricing is more than your bank account or business expense sheet can handle. And then there’s the nerves about your driver and car — will he or she be too chatty, get lost, opt not to reroute; will the car smell funny or be dirty? And that’s before you even consider the possible safety issues. Imagine finding your phone battery depleted after a long day of meetings or outings, and you cannot even open your rideshare app to call a car back to the hotel. These rank as some of the most worrisome rideshare issues and it’s time to take back the wheel and forget about these troubles permanently.
Eliminate the worries and focus on business. Signing the deal should be more important than stressing about waiting outside for a delayed rideshare.

Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.
In food capitals like New York City, foodie crazes seem to rise and set as quickly as the sun, but one trend that has endured for awhile now is the city’s penchant for regional Chinese cuisine, and the East Village is home to some of the city’s top spots for sampling your way through several of these regions.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
Some places appear better to visit in the winter. For example, anywhere known for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, will be less visited in the summer because those same people are going to spend their time at the beach or another destination. However, visiting these destinations during the off-seasons can show a side of the city or town that can’t be seen under piles of snow. It’s worth checking out a couple of these favorite winter destinations.
