More than 60 percent of business trips during the last year were extended for leisure purposes, according to the “Unpacking Bleisure Traveler Trends” report from Expedia. In the US, bleisure travel conversion is consistent with the multi-national average of 60 percent, revealing a nearly 40 percent increase in American bleisure travel since 2016.
Bleiusre Travel Increases According to Expedia
Among the other findings: 56 percent said they are more likely to consider a bleisure trip in a destination with great food and restaurants, closely followed by about 50 percent influenced by beaches, weather, nature, historical monuments or sightseeing.
Business trips lasting two to three nights are most likely to result in bleisure extension, as are trips where the business destination is more than 400 miles from home; and most bleisure travelers personally research and book accommodations (61 percent), airfare (42 percent) and dining (38 percent) for the leisure portion of their trip.
