These days, travel is just a part of doing business for busy professionals across every field. In fact, according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation, American Express, and the U.S. Travel Association, Americans take around 488 million business-related trips each year. That’s more than 1 million trips every day, and business professionals whose jobs require frequent travel take around 12 to 14 trips per year—sometimes more—each one of which averages 5 nights away from home.
These may entail trips to nearby cities, but nearly 35% of all business trips include a flight to and from the destination—with the average business flight taking one to a city more than 500 miles away from home base. That’s a lot of travel, and it’s no surprise that those who spend a lot of time on the road for work are always seeking ways to make their journeys as easy and comfortable as possible.
When it comes to business travel destinations, Kansas City routinely makes it onto the top ten lists according to sites like Midwest Living, Thrillist Travel, Huffington Post, and Midwest Traveler, to name just a few. Other cities that frequently make the list include Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Des Moines, Omaha, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Wichita. If you find yourself headed to any of those cities for business, you owe it to yourself to try extending your trip for just a couple of days—if you can—to see a bit of what the city has to offer.
Whether you’re just flying in for a quick business lunch or planning to stay a few extra days to see the sights, there’s no better way to get where you need to go than to hire a professional limousine service to take you there. Navigating an unfamiliar city in a rental car can be a chore, and you don’t want to trust your busy schedule to taxis, ride-sharing services, or public transportation. A chauffeured sedan or other luxury vehicle service can get you to and from the airport, not to mention your business meetings, lunch and dinner engagements, and any of the great sights you want to see, in comfort and style and, of course, on time.
If your business is bringing you to Kansas City, stay awhile and see why we’re one of the most popular business and travel destinations in the Midwest. Enjoy some world-famous Kansas City BBQ, visit the American Jazz Museum, see the 22-acre sculpture park at the Nelson-Atkins Museum, catch a Royals game at Kauffman Stadium, or experience one of the many other sights, sounds, and flavors of the city.
