And imagine if that would come out in the company, that someone has abused the privilege by using the hotel room that your company has payed for bringing people there for sex.depending of their contract they could get fired or at least get serious warning!Allow me to complicate this debate just slightly: I have had colleagues who have been joined on the road by their wives/partners while we were on business travel in particularly fab locales (New York, Montreal etc.) Of course, my colleagues paid for their significant other's airfare, but their partners were allowed to stay in the hotel room with them.Normally, the situation is cleared with the boss ahead of time, and it's never been a problem as far as I am aware.

This one is for all you business travellers out there: Let's say you've got a series of meetings in another city.

Frequent flyers can make new friends with passengers that travel out of the same airport as they do on a regular basis.
