Australians are conscientious when travelling for business, least inclined to mix business with pleasure in the Asia Pacific region, according to a recent survey by Accor.
The 2012 Accor Asia Pacific Business Traveller Survey surveyed more than 2,500 people from eight countries on their business travel.
Only 15 percent of Australians had taken a partner or a friend on a business trip which was the least of the eight countries surveyed, and only 11 extended a trip to visit friends or relatives or tacked a holiday on at the end.
When it came to preferences, a comfortable hotel bed was the most important followed by a good quality clean bathroom and free internet. The hotel location was regarded as important as travellers wanted somewhere close to where they were doing business.
Mr Hook said while the result of gender equity in business travel wasn't a surprise it was a disappointment.
"Australia had one of the better records in this area... but corporate travel still seems to be overwhelmingly skewed towards male road-warriors.''
