Results from a recent poll have revealed that business travellers favour a decent broadband connection over comfort.

62% of respondents, aged between 18 and 34, said they required a good broadband connection when they are working away from their home or office.

The survey was conducted by YouGov and was completed by 2,000 British adults to coincide with the Business Travel Show that is being held in London.

The study also found just 39% of business commuters aged over 35 said they preferred a good connection when working away.

46% of younger workers said they were enthusiastic about future innovations and wanted in-room broadband access and other technology available during their time away.

89% also said that a comfortable bed during a business trip was also another important factor.

Apartment provider Saco said the results reflect how important it is for companies and travel suppliers to understand business travellers’ needs.

Saco sales director, Ben Harper said: “Our new research findings serve to underpin the travel behaviours of Millennials and consequently what we foresee for the future of business travel.

“We’re considering these findings as we continue to expand and tailor our services to the modern traveller of today and tomorrow.”
