Days Inn knows it's no surprise that company cost cutting puts added pressure on business travelers. To help manage budgets in the economic downturn, business travelers will need to implement measures that maximize value. Since the use of conferencing tools such as webinars can't always replace face-to-face meetings, Days Inns - Canada offers some essential tips for the frugal, cost-conscious business traveler.
Get Rewarded: Rewards programs such as the Wyndham Rewards Program add value and extend your buying power. Check with your hotel to see if they offer loyalty rewards travel, such as the Wyndham Rewards Program. Now through May 7, 2009, Wyndham Rewards members who stay at participating Days Inn locations in Canada and the United States will earn Double Aeroplan Miles or Double Wyndham Rewards points starting with the first hotel stay as part of the Double Points or Miles promotions.
Better Value for Your Dollar: For the guaranteed best available rate, remember to book online hotel reservations well in advance. Look for low cost national hotel chains that cater to business travelers, such as Days Inn with amenities including free high-speed Internet access, a free Daybreak Café breakfast at most locations and spacious work desk and high-intensity work light. And, be on the lookout for special hotel discounts such as bonus loyalty points and business packages.
Comfort Counts: With budget cutbacks and travel restraints, your next business trip doesn't have to break the bank! Why not pass on the 4-star hotel and go for a 3-star that will provide clean, comfortable rooms, exceptional service and the essential hotel amenities all at a reasonable price. Keep in mind discount business travel shouldn't mean cutting out necessities. Visit brand-specific websites to find up-to-date photography and room descriptions so you know exactly what to expect.
Stay Connected: It's a good idea to send your business itinerary to a coworker, friend or relative so someone will always know your whereabouts. Be sure to carry a cell phone when traveling alone, and of course sending an e-mail from the road to keep people informed is a good idea.
Less Is More: Be sure to pack light and right - the less you pack, the less you have to carry. A checklist with different categories will help you get organized and ensure you fill your suitcase with the necessities. Traveling with light luggage will ease your trip and increase overall comfort level while on the road.
