by Traveleads | January 22, 2019 | Latest News On The Ground
We know that most business travellers prefer direct flights, after all time is money! When direct flights aren’t available the next best thing is an indirect flight, with the shortest valid connection. Sometimes, unfortunately, flight programmes and scheduling means an overnight stay is unavoidable. To help you decide where to stay when faced with this situation, we asked our friends at HotelREZ to compile a list of their top 5 favourite airport hotels. They came back with a list of fantastic properties, all conveniently located near major city airports and all offering the kind of facilites that are a must on any business travellers list of requirements, from free parking to two-way transfers upon request. The ultimate accommodation choices for business travellers on the go.
