As I currently live in Edinburgh I thought I would share my top ten tips for those organising business travel to this wonderful city. With such a large number of financial organisations based in Edinburgh, many of you will organise business trips here at some point or another. It is a fairly easy city to get around, the transport links are fantastic and the airport is a quick 25 minutes away by cab. The people are incredibly friendly and there are a lot of different activities you can organise for client and team building activities.
The weather is a little, shall we say, unpredictable and so I would advise that your Executive travels with lots of layers – even in the summer. Talking about summer – the Edinburgh Festival takes place in August. The city is absolutely amazing during the festival with a vast amount of events taking place. It is a great time to visit the city but it is unbelievably busy. If your boss is travelling to Edinburgh in August do make sure you book flights, hotels and restaurants as early as possible.
So yes, as you can see there are lots of unique aspects that business travellers will experience on arrival into Edinburgh. Here are my top ten tips for assistants organising a business trip to Edinburgh.
