Business travellers only get 36 minutes free time when visiting UK cities according to Jurys Inn

submited Wed 10 Sep, 2014

36 Minute City Guides launched to show how to get the best from cities – direct from Jurys Inn staff

  • UK business travellers only have 36 minutes to actually experience cities they visit
  • Over 90% of Brits said they wished they knew more about the cities they visited for business
  • More than a fifth feel it is ridiculous they don’t get to see more of a city
  • 16% of Brits spend spare time sat alone in coffee shops to pass the time
  • In response, Jurys Inn launches 36 Minute City Guides across UK cities

A study by Jurys Inn Hotel Group today revealed that business travellers only get 36 minutes’ free time to explore a city they are visiting for work, despite over 90% saying they wished they knew more about the cities.

The research goes on to show that 22% feel it is ridiculous they don’t get to see more while there, with many corporate travellers ending up whiling away the time alone in a coffee shop (16%).

With hotels across the UK ideally located in the heart of city centres, Jurys Inn has used its staff’s local expertise to create 36 Minute City Guides of key business travel cities. These ensure that, with minimal moments to spare, time-poor professionals can still get insider knowledge on the best of the city. Each location-specific video guide will help guests feel like a local when staying at a Jurys Inn city centre hotel, giving a quick-stop guide to hidden gems to explore and experience in their 36 free minutes.

Suzanne Cannon, Jurys Inn Group Marketing Manager said “It’s a shame that business travellers get such a limited amount of time to really experience the cities they are visiting for work. At Jurys Inn, our staff are always on hand to offer advice about great hotspots and hidden gems to visit, even if guests only have a few minutes to spare. With our hotels being ideally placed right in the heart of cities, we hope our 36 Minutes City guides will let business travellers make the most of their next stay at one of our city centre hotels.”
