There are many reasons why you might need to rent office or conference spaces when you’re travelling – even if your trip is for pleasure. And if you’re a working road-warrior, then the need is very likely to arise.
Thanks to what we are now calling ‘the sharing economy’, we can now rent workspaces throughout the world thanks to a service called Sharedesk – a sort of Airbnb for office rental. One of the best aspects of this service – and they are all over the world – is that you can simply rent a desk for an hour if you wish – or for much longer. It’s entirely up to you.
This is a wonderful service for travellers – even those on vacation – because how many of us could survive for long if the internet went out in our hotel or rental accommodation?
It’s ideal for groups too because conference rooms are also available. Imagine having your own working space without all the hassle.
- If you’re on a business trip and road construction outside your hotel is noisy, then rent an office
- If you travel in an RV or you’re camping these rented offices are perfect for you to write your book or design your new website
- As a business traveller, you want to relax when you’re at ‘home’ in your hotel to confine your working day to your rented office time
- These spaces are much better than a hotel lobby in which to meet your clients
- Some spaces are set up for various professions (such as sewing rooms for fashion designers, studios for artists etc.) so you’ll more than likely find that your needs are catered for
- You’ll meet new people and who know? Maybe a new business or creative relationship might develop
- Your co-workers could be the perfect people to show you the best restaurants, bars and cafés in town
- These spaces are ideal for bloggers who are travelling
- If you’re a freelancer you can work anywhere in the world and still enjoy the best of facilities
- You might be on vacation but if your company calls and needs you to work for a few hours, then simply rent a desk
