The latest research released this week by the Global Business Travel Association shows 37% of North American business travelers had extended a work trip to include some leisure within the past year. This, typically, might mean stetching a break in a city into the weekend, possibly shipping in the family to join the fun. Often, such travelers will stay in the same hotel for the duration, making up the extra cost themselves.

Interestingly, the older the travelers the less likely they are to do this. While 48% of 18-34-year-olds in the GBTA survey said they had taken a bleisure trip, only 33% of travelers aged 35-54 and 23% of over 55 did.
