Tips / Travel

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.


How can you best maximize your bleisure opportunity? The first tip for success is careful scheduling. If you can, arrange meetings to start on a Monday or end on a Friday, allowing you to squeeze a weekend’s worth of activities in between.


Next up, book your flights, accommodations and rental car. Airfare and hotels can be arranged to your personal preference, but a rental car is the most important piece of this puzzle. After a scattered work itinerary, for which you’ll be thankful you have your own set of wheels, a rental car brings the freedom to bleisure as you wish at your own pace. This is your time, so don’t be hindered by rideshare or taxi availability.


Rental cars are convenient for tip No. 4 as well. Think outside your destination. Business may bring you somewhere boring, but perfect seaside escapes or bustling city destinations await just a drive away. Hop behind the wheel of your rental car and be on your way as soon as the last meeting concludes.


Last, but perhaps most important, make the most of your bleisure time. Freedom, flexibility and speed factor into maximum enjoyment, and Hertz offers all three. It’s a better alternative to a rideshare.


Experience a new level of speed and convenience with Hertz Fast Lane powered by CLEAR. It’s FREE for all Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® members and gets you on the road faster. Hertz Fast Lane powered by CLEAR is rolling out across 40+ airports in 2019.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
