Long or extended stay properties typically specialise in accommodation ranging from one week to three months, however, in some cases the length of stay can extend into many months.
Long stay properties offer business travellers a flexible accommodation solution with wide range of advantages – the most popular being:
comfort and convenience, with additional space and flexibility to enjoy a more ‘normal’ lifestyle during evenings and weekends, particularly for families
the ability to feel more at home as a whole, with features such as fully equipped kitchens, laundries, work/study areas, and storage for their clothes
being able to ‘eat in’, with more travellers preferring to cook themselves rather than eat out every night
price – with far more competitive rates than those of hotels, less surcharges and more flexibility in cancellation policies
having the room and the amenities to entertain friends and family
no leases to sign and all utilities bills paid.
All maintenance issues dealt with
For employers, long stay properties offer more comfortable accommodation (and satisfaction!) for their staff and a more cost effective solution for the business. More of these properties can also now be booked within a company’s travel policy, providing further long-term savings and efficiencies.
