I just got invited to a work trip to NYC. It's only a one night trip, and I will be traveling with a few coworkers. Oddly enough, the same weekend (trip is on a Friday), I had declined a trip to NYC with my significant other to visit some friends. Now it seems like an almost perfect way to extend the business trip Friday into a Saturday/Sunday personal trip.
However, they are arranging travel and I don't want to step on any toes. It's seems burdensome for them to have to book X 2-way flights and 1 1-way flight. I also don't want my presence there to seem like a disingenuous way to just get a cheap vacation. I don't even know if there's some policy against bringing an employee somewhere and leaving them. Of course the answer to most of these is I should just ask but I'd like to scope what the norm is for this.
Should I just say I'll provide my own travel to alleviate some of the issues? Am I just overthinking it and I should really take advantage of the great situation?
