From my understanding, if you are after hours away from the office and it does not interfere with your work the next day, then it is your business. However, some employers may use this as a reason to terminate or reprimand you. I would check with the employment laws in your area or contact the EEOC for more information as it may be illegal in some states for employers to do that. In other states where the " at will" is in place, then an employer can terminate or reprimand as long as it is not discriminatory in any way. It would be unusual. But, if you got drunk and insulted a client, made a pass at a coworker, threw up at an awards dinner. . . any of those are not going to help your case. Also, employers have to treat all employees fairly, so if they fire you for havig one drink, they have to fire anyone else who's done it.

Business travel is travel that you take for business reasons. So, if you have to go to Denver to visit your family, that is a vacation. If you have to go for a work conference, that is business travel. Business travel is typically paid for by your employer, while your own personal travel is paid for by you.

The journey to the UK from the United States is long, but it is not dangerous. It is safer to travel by airplane than it is to travel by car. People travel to the UK to vacation, for business, or to visit friends and family.

The travel business can be very lucrative. To start a travel business, one must first have office space. Then one can either purchase a travel agency franchise or begin as an independent contractor for an already established business. In some states, the travel agent must be a registered seller of travel and have passed necessary coursework.

Definitely, the person that comes with word of mouth recommendations from more than one of your friends or acquaintances from the business you are in. The reason one would stress getting referrals from those in the same business is that the travel agent would know the nuances of your business to a certain extent and also would be familiar with what is most important to those in the same position as you.

Business travel is travel to a certain location for business related purposes such as attending business meeting, meeting suppliers or customers, closing business deals etc. This type of travel is generally paid by the company and the travel expenses (e.g. meals, hotel stay and transportation) can usually be reimbursed with official receipts. Normal business travelers usually take the economy class seats, while for senior managements or executives, some international companies will allow them to travel with business class or first class seats. Business travel is defined as travel that is necessary to ensure the survival, success and growth of the company. It is assumed that only with personal contact with business associates can deals be completed satisfactory. In addition business travelers can also help break down barriers and stereotypes. As roving ambassadors for their respective countries they are always expected to behave and act in an exemplary manner. Business travel is considered any time

Business travel insurance is often an unnecessary expense. Often the company you work for will have travel insurance included in the insurance they provide for their employees.

Business class travel is normally significantly cheaper than first class travel. Typically, you will save about 25-50% when booking business class instead of first class airfare.
