What is a workation?

Recently workations have increased in popularity. Why not add some work days to your holiday? Or add some extra holidays to your work trip. 

During a workation, individuals typically bring their laptops or other work devices and maintain their regular work schedule or commitments while taking advantage of the leisure and recreational opportunities available in the destination. This could include exploring tourist attractions, engaging in outdoor activities, or simply relaxing in a new environment.

Type of accommodation

There are a lot of options when it comes to accommodation for a workation. Which accommodation is the best for you?

hotel workation


A hotel is the easiest option. There are plenty of hotels to choose from with a variety of prices. Make sure your hotel room has a desk and free WiFi.

If you want a bit more space than a hotel, you should consider an apartment. You’ll have more amenities like a kitchen and living room.

Some people might take a workation for creative or strategic reasons. Some companies or teams plan it for team building or training purposes. 

There are simply too many reasons why a workation is a great option for you.

All you need is a laptop, mobile phone, great wifi, excellent coffee, and a fine hotel.

Workation time

You can call a single overnight trip a workation. Why not? Or the extra night on your weekend break. There is no fixed time frame for a workation.

One-night or two-night trips are common. Longer workations for a week can be perfect to fit into a work schedule. You can also go even longer – a month for example.

Workation time

How long?

The time you plan for your workation depends completely on yourself. It can depend on the location, the travel distance, and your budget. It can also depend on plans that surround your workation time.

If you are about to set off on your first workation – then plan a shorter trip for a starter. Try if a workation actually works for you.

Workation or workcation

Both words communicate: “ a combination of work and vacation”. Workation is simply the contraction of work and vacation. 

There is no real better or lesser word. Both mean the exact same. The preferred spelling seems to be: workation. 

Where to go on a workation?

You can go virtually anywhere for a workation. Far away to exotic locations or close by. Take a plane, drive your car or take a train to your temporary new place.

Decide where you want to go. Cities make great places for workations. Or if you prefer a more relaxing vibe, then you can look for a countryside location. 

Some people like the livelihood from an urban environment. Some people get their energy from more natural areas. Decide what would suit the best for your next workation.

You can go with colleagues and or team members. You can also plan to make a workation with your partner. Why not?

Other options are to find other people to join you for a workation. As long as you set out with the same intentions it could be a great experience.

It may need a bit of planning. More people, more fun. Being together can make a great difference. Workwise it might not make a difference but for your holiday time, it will definitely bring a lot.

Make sure that you all agree on the same plan. Work time in the morning, relaxing in the afternoon (for example). Discuss it at forehand to make the best out of your workation time.

Things to consider:

with who?
what plan?
which location?
what purpose?
what agreements?
what budget?
