Business Travel in the UK

London and the UK is a huge hub for business and business travel. There are hundreds of hotels marketed towards business travellers, as well as more and more flights (including some budget options) with business options including suites at the airports and even an airport just outside of the heart of the financial district of London on the River Thames – dedicated to business travellers (though not exclusively) with many daily flights between London and Geneva.

If you’re travelling to the UK on business, then you’ll need to take a look at all the available travel options. Several of the airports, including Heathrow are a good hour and more out of the city – so if you’re flying in and need to head directly to work then it might be an idea to fly directly to London City Airport which is just a 20 minute drive from the Canary Wharf development and just a straight drive onwards to Bank and London Bridge. You’ll no doubt need a car – as public transport in London is very difficult to navigate on the first attempts and can be slow and confusing. It isn’t advisable to hire a car in London when you get to the airport – as most of the car rental kiosks will be full with lengthy queues and very little choice. We recommend booking your car rental for business travel in the UK before you travel –  Car Rentals Network has access to hundreds of car hire services across the country to make sure you get the best available deals for your trip.

If you’re flying into the north of England, then you’ll more than likely fly to Manchester airport in the Midlands – which is just a short drive from Manchester city airport – this is especially helpful for those visiting the likes of the BBC whose offices are in the Manchester area – as well as other northern cities such as York, Sheffield and Leeds. No matter where you are flying in to in England – you’ll find that the road and public transport networks are easy to navigate – particularly between major cities – and even across country from the north to south and vice versa. Most, if not all major UK airports have a good selection of hotels just a moments drive away, and the likes of London, Manchester and Edinburgh all have superb hotels and conference facilities in the heart of the city. It’s best to book everything in advance – including any flights, hotels and car hire as the major cities are always busy – the year round, but particularly in the summer months.
