Planning your accommodation while on a business trip usually involves a hotel or guest house, as these are the most common choices and easy to book. However, finding furnished apartments to rent is fast becoming preferable, because it has so many benefits to offer.
A furnished apartment is ideal for a single business traveller, as there is enough room, and all the amenities one will need. It is better than a hotel in that it is likely more affordable and also more comfortable as you can change the layout however you need and add or remove furniture and other appliances to accommodate your needs. This is also perfect for people who need to be close to their work, and be comfortable at the same time, while having their own private space to enjoy.
The term of the lease can be negotiated based upon your requirements, which is something you cannot do with a hotel room. If you work with an agent, you can choose the terms you need and choose the length of the contract that you need, or require for work. If your stay needs to be extended, you can easily do so by simply consulting with your agent and having him or her re-negotiating the terms.
One thing to keep in mind is that your chosen furnished apartment should be located close to your work. Make sure that you know where the closest highway is, as well as amenities like shopping malls, restaurants and dry cleaners. If you travel a lot, make sure that you are close to an international airport, to reduce your travelling time on the road. Your agent can assist you with this, as well as other amenities that you might require to be close to you. Your apartment can offer services such as internet and cable television, so enquire about this first, before you sign an agreement.
