This study examined fluctuations in the experience of conflict between work and family and burnout in different phases of business travel as well as the relationship between work-family conflict (WFC) and burnout among 58 business travelers. Travelers completed questionnaires at 3 points in time: prior to going abroad, during the stay abroad, and after their return. An analysis of variance detected a different pattern of fluctuations in the levels of both WFC and burnout according to gender. Furthermore, while WFC at the pretrip and midtrip periods did not predict burnout in subsequent measurements, pretrip burnout did predict WFC during the trip and after the trip.
