International business Travellers
Tube/Bus - Grab an Oyster card and use the travelcard option if travelling a lot (1 day or 7 day) which allows you to pay a flat fee for unlimited train or bus journeys instead of topping up as you go (which may work out more expensive in the long run).
Train - If your business is outside of central London, then you may be better off catching a train. National rail allow easy access to areas outside of London from Paddington, Victoria and many other stations and the Eurostar operates out of Kings Cross St. Pancras which allows travel to Paris and many other European destinations.
'Air Line' - Operating from the Royal Docks to Greenwich, this Emirates Air Line is a unique way to get to work but, as it is limited to two stops only, it is far from convenient unless you have business in that specific area.
All corporate travellers agree that one of the most important things they need while on a business trip is free wifi. Staying connected is of vital importance and most travellers insist on free wireless internet when booking any accommodation nowadays. Luckily, most of our come with free wireless internet which, in addition to spacious bedrooms and living areas and self-catering facilities, make them an ideal choice for that business trip to the city. However, if you are looking for wifi while out and about in the city, here are two of our favourite hotspots.
- Take in views of Westminster and the London Eye while you tweak that powerpoint presentation or check your e-mails.
- It's not hard to find a quiet spot to work in this maze of a building and several coffee shops are located there to give you that caffeine fix if you need it.
