The Most Expensive Cities for Business Travel in 2017

A recent study by Expert Market analyzed the average cost of business trips in 100 cities in the U.S., as well as 100 non-U.S. cities, looking at the daily cost of accommodation, taxis or car rental and food, to uncover how much companies were forking up to send employees to certain places. The Big Apple takes the cake for the most expensive city for business travel, with employers paying nearly $550 per person a day during a business trip there. In fact, hotel accommodation alone costs an average $385 a night in New York City. Coming in close second is San Francisco, where employers can expect to drop an average $534 daily on an employee there. Following behind San Francisco is Boston ($511), Washington D.C. ($462) and Chicago ($444). More.
