When traveling on business, millennials are more likely than older employees to add vacation days onto the trip and to spend more of their boss' money than their own on items such as room service and expensive meals.
Workers under 45 also feel more entitled than older employees to the loyalty program and reward points earned while traveling for business.
Those are among the findings of a study released Monday by Expedia.com and its business travel company, Egencia, that asked 8,535 employed adults in 24 countries about their likes, dislikes, preferences and pet peeves when traveling.

The study was conducted online by Harris Interactive between mid-August and mid-September across Europe, North America, South America and Asia-Pacific.
It sheds light on the experiences of business travelers of all ages and found, for example, that 39 percent report working more hours when they travel than when they are at the office, and that 68 percent receive some sort of compensation (either money or comp days) for trips that include nights and weekends.
But Expedia spokeswoman Sarah Gavin said the study was specifically designed to look at younger travelers who are poised "to gain decision-making power within corporations and, as their careers rise, buying power in leisure travel."
Understanding what these tech-savvy and -trusting millennials want "will inform how we think about what will matter in the years to come," she said.
