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.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.
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.
While your first inclination might be panic when you map out the various appointments and meetings on your upcoming business trip, relax. Trust us, a rental car has you covered.
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.
