“Are you traveling for business or leisure?” Normally you’d answer with one or the other. But travelers are increasingly saying “both,” leading to the coining of a new term: bleisure.
And it’s gaining ground fast. According to National Car Rental’s 2019 State of Business Travel Survey, 90 percent of millennials, 81 percent of Gen Xers, and 80 percent of boomers have “bleisure” traveled in the past year.
However, bleisure traveling brings unique challenges to T&E management.
For example, how do you distinguish between business time and personal time? Does duty of care still apply to personal time? Who pays for what? What if plans change? As bleisure traveling becomes more popular, AP systems will need to be more adaptive to the unique challenges this form of travel brings.
