Some Tips for a Better Business Travel

Jul 22, 2008
As the world gets smaller, more businesses are having to finance more trips to meet and service customers. Stress is the biggest problem with business travel and is generally not as glamorous as most people perceive it to be. Seasoned travelers may already be aware of the information below but if you are a new member of the business travelers club then you may find the information below very useful and help make the trip easier.

When baggage goes missing for instance it is irritating to say the least but for someone on a business trip it can be a whole lot more disasterous. To reduce the chance of a wasted journey, always carry anything that is relevant to your trip in your hand luggage.

This makes a great deal of sense because you are covered should your main luggage go missing then your meeting can still go ahead and hopefully your main luggage will be located in due course. Of course when you are packing your main suitcase for the journey, it will be much simpler for you if you only include items that you absolutely must have for the trip.

The easiest way to do this is to only take one pair of casual shoes and work pair, keep your work clothes to exactly what you need for the tip and likewise clothes for when you are on your private time. This will leave room for toiletries, any other extra business materials you'll need, and so on.

A clever way to reduce the size of bag you require is to too your clothes up instead of folding them and apart for taking up less space they are less creased when they are unpacked. To go one step further, if you want to ensure that even if food or drink are spilled on your clothes you won't need them laundered; use dark colors which is also handy because creases don't notice as much either.

If you are delayed for any reason then knowing you can freshen up prior to the meeting without the need for a shower can be a lifesaver and where those travel wipes come in very useful. Remember before you leave to charge up your cell phone and other electronic devices, and look in to getting some form of mobile or wireless internet access package so that you can work on the move.

There is nothing worse than sitting in a hotel room at night working when you could be out exploring the city you are in so make use of the flight time and try to get important preparation work done then. Regular business travelers make these preparations before every trip to ensure the business side of it goes without a hitch.

But there is no real reason why you shouldn't enjoy a business trip and meeting as well as your free time by adhering to the few, very simple tips given here.
