Though business trips often only last a couple of days or weeks, long-term business travel is sometimes necessary. Whether you’re working on an extended project, need a lot of firsthand contact with a client, or are establishing a new part of a business, it might take multiple months to see a job through. Prolonged stays in other states or countries require a lot of planning to ensure workers have access to living accommodations, office space, and transportation.

Long-Term Housing

Having comfortable, secure housing is the first factor to manage when planning a long-term business trip. Unlike shorter trips, extended stays demand more space and amenities like kitchens, laundry facilities, and even multiple bedrooms. Extended-stay hotels, vacation rentals, and serviced apartments offer the best living options for long-term business traveler needs in metropolitan areas.

Extended Stay Hotels

Specifically designed for long-term guests, extended-stay hotels focus on creating a home-like atmosphere with spacious rooms, kitchens or kitchenettes, and laundry services.

Serviced Apartments

These pre-furnished apartments come equipped with separate bedrooms, living spaces, kitchens, and other amenities or services expected in most complexes.

Office Space

Having a designated work space is essential for productivity. Depending on housing accommodations, hotel business and conference centers or home offices could serve as long-term workspaces. However, those without access to these facilities should look into co-working spaces. These are shared work areas where individuals from different companies and professions work in a communal space. Co-working spaces have become increasingly popular with entrepreneurs, freelancers, and remote workers.

No matter where your workspace is situated, it should be equipped to handle daily needs. Common requirements include a strong internet connection, access to mail service, and a dedicated phone line. Look for spaces that can accommodate these needs long term.


Transportation in a new city is key. Since workers likely won’t be purchasing or bringing their own vehicles with them, it’s important to have reliable transportation available for work and leisure activities. Housing accommodations near public transit lines, whether buses or metros, offer convenient commuting. In areas without reliable public transportation, a long-term car rental or short-term lease is a good option


Being in a new place alone can become isolating. During downtime, long-term business travelers should put effort into attending networking events or connecting with locals through clubs, activities, and other social happenings. Co-working spaces have another advantage here: these workspaces lend themselves to networking and collaboration among professionals utilizing the space.
