Do most of your clients like to be on site for the entirety of the engagement or are they okay with you coming in for a couple weeks and then working remotely?

Depends on the client and their budget! I’ve had a client who had me travel every week but was ok with me not every now and then to the client I have now where I haven’t travelled in 7 weeks and now they want me to travel! I’m glad, I was bored at home

We usually push remote work as much as possible. Maybe meet for a day or two max and go remote the rest of the time
