Premier Inn Business News
The best and worst of business jargon
We polled the British public to discover which office lingo they hate most. From “no brainer” to “game-changer”, the nation has decided the 33 most cringe-inducing phrases they hear at work.
Owning our sites
At Whitbread, owning the majority of our hotels and restaurants has given us a significant competitive advantage.
Don’t lose sleep over lack of control
When it comes to running a successful travel programme, transparency is key. Which is why at Premier Inn, we pride ourselves on keeping our prices, policies, and information crystal clear for customers.
Location, location, location
We know that location is key when it comes to business travel, and while recent technology trends have enabled companies to conduct meetings digitally, they haven’t entirely replaced the need for face-to-face interactions.
Our travel hacks will help you pack smarter and get the most out of your business trips.
Need to charge your phone on the train but aren’t close to a plug socket? Always carry an external charger for those emergency moments. There are pocket-sized ones that are ideal for people on the go.
Look the business
When you’re packing for a trip, try rolling your shirts instead of folding them to avoid unsightly creases. But, if you do end up with a few unexpected ones, hang the shirts in the shower and the steam will get rid of them instantly.
Pack smart - work smarter
For a crisp looking shirt, coil your belt around your shirt collar to keep it looking straight and stiff when you wear it. It will save you space too so you’ll have a spot for that extra pair of socks or phone charger.
Take more for less
Try finding a cabin-sized travel bag that already comes with a laptop compartment so that you don’t have to carry two separate bags. You’ll also have an extra hand to carry your takeaway coffee, fuss-free.
