Una Pro Tip: Plan a business trip in a new city using Una
If you’ve ever traveled for work, you know how time consuming it can be to find a convenient place to stay and interesting things to do in your spare time (and antiquated work travel software doesn’t help matters). You want to make the most of your time in a new city, but you’re unfamiliar with the area and need to plan within a schedule tied to particular locations. Una is designed to be the perfect travel concierge, not just for planning a personal trip but also a business trip. Digital nomads and work travelers alike use Una to plan trips around their meetings and conferences, and utilize Una’s “For You” carousel to discover nearby personalized recommendations.
Let’s take NYC as an example. You’re headed there for a two-week business trip and will be working out of the WeWork office located in Chelsea. After you create a new trip to NYC, just add your WeWork location as a custom stop. Tap “custom stop” in the Find or Plan screens.
Find a Nearby Accommodation
Next you can find a hotel that’s near WeWork. In Una, navigate to the Find tab, then the Hotels category. Browse hotels in a map view and look at the relative distance between your hotel options and your WeWork location.
Book Your Stay with Una
Hotel Hayden looks like a great choice in terms of pricing, location, and ratings. You check out their photos and amenities, and then book your preferred stay all within Una.
Now that you’ve added your workplace and a nearby accommodation to your itinerary, you can explore interesting experiences to add.
Find a Restaurant for a Business Dinner
New York is famous for their good eats, but if you’re new to the city and looking for the right restaurant for a business dinner, you can get some guidance from Una. The “For You” carousel in the Find tab offers personalized recommendations for restaurants, parks, landmarks and more. These options are tailored to your interests based on your preference quiz inputs and interactions with the app.
Add Unique and Local Experiences
Let’s add High Line Park, a unique New York experience that’s convenient to our other itinerary stops. As you browse other stops of interest, you can look at photos and read reviews before adding them to your itinerary.
Once your trip is wrapped up and you’re ready to fly home, add a custom stop for JFK airport. Simply go to the Plan tab, tap “Create a Custom Stop” and search for JFK. Once you add JFK, you’ll see driving time estimates in the planning map view to help you arrive at your gate on time.
Una does the bulk of the research and planning for you so you can focus on more important things like the work you came to accomplish and local experiences you came to explore.. With all your itinerary essentials in one place, you can put down your phone and get more out of your trip. Safe travels and happy planning!
