Solo Business Travel: How to Prevent Being Lonely on the Road

Traveling for business can involve long days, which often include going out with colleagues or customers. However, when it comes to solo business travel, evenings can be completely free. Unstructured time during travel doesn?t have to be lonely time. Here are some ways to enjoy your time while on the road by yourself.
Dine Out
The idea of dining out as a solo traveler can sometimes be daunting, but it can be a great experience. Eating at the bar in a restaurant can take some of the stigma out of dining alone.  There are other patrons to strike up a conversation with and there are usually TVs to divert your attention. In many cities, communal tables are becoming increasingly popular in nicer restaurants. Pulling up a chair in one of these spots is another great chance to meet locals, be social and try some great food.
Take a Tour
In many cities, you can often find evening tours. Some of my favorite tour experiences have been walking or food tours. Generally, you?ll get a 3-4 hour walking tour of a city?s highlights, plus stops at 4-6 restaurants for a bite to eat. You?ll learn about the food and the destination.
You can also take a self-guided tour by going for a stroll. Evenings can be a great time to go for a long walk and explore your surroundings. Before heading out, it?s a good idea to ask your hotel or a local which areas are safest to visit. Be sure to take precautions, of course. Use your street smarts and don?t get caught alone. But enjoy the time wandering in a new place.
Explore an Interest
Solo business travel can give you an opportunity to do something you love. Do you have something you?re passionate about" Explore that interest in a new city. If you?re a member of an organization, see if they have a local meeting in the city. Otherwise, check out, which has thousands of events and activities covering all kinds of interests and hobbies.
Hit the Gym
Finding time to work out on the road can be difficult. So, if you find the time, heading to the hotel gym or out for a run is never a bad option. Services such as Classpass can also be used to find and book classes in tons of locations around the world. Working out is a great way to relieve any stress from the day and can help take your mind off being away from friends and family.
Indulge in a Spa Treatment
There?s no denying that traveling for work can be stressful and hard on your body. I don?t know anyone who feels refreshed after a 5-hour flight in economy! Give your body some much deserved love by heading to the hotel spa or ordering a massage right to your Airbnb through Zeel. You only have one body, so invest in it.
Go Shopping
If you?re a busy professional, you may have limited time in your hometown to go out and shop. Work and family keep you always on the go. An evening alone on a business trip can be a great chance to indulge in some retail therapy.
Catch a Show
Whatever your interests, you?ll probably be able to...
