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.

Hotels, airlines and travel companies are constantly looking for the best way to offer guests unique and memorable experiences. One of the latest ways hotels have expanded guests’ cultural exposure is through specialty concierges, or on-hand experts who can arrange bespoke travel experiences for individuals or groups.
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.

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?
