When you are traveling for a business trip, there is a lot of work that needs to be done before and after the flight. You need to pack all your necessary items, get through airport security without any issues, and make sure you have enough time at your destination for meetings or presentations.
Positive thoughts will lead to a stress-free travel experience. Acknowledge helpful staff, and you are more likely able to change your itinerary or receive extraordinary service when requesting it politely with an attitude of gratitude in mind!
There are many ways to make traveling for business easier, and one way is by being kind. Being courteous can help you minimize inconveniences when dealing with people or things that may be in your way while on the go!
6 Tips for Easier Business Travel
To minimize luggage, go with a carry-on
Luggage is a crucial component of any trip. One way to minimize your stress while traveling, find exactly what you need and pack a lighter with today’s new suitcases from brands like Tumi or Travelon!
To plan ahead, use technology
Seatguru.com is the best place to find out what aircraft you’ll be flying on, and how much legroom or recline your seat has before taking off! Search for an empty row without anyone sitting in it; this will allow space between yourself and any other passenger so that if there’s turbulence during flight time (which no one wants), at least they won’t feel cramped next door as well.
You can save yourself time and trouble by making reservations through OpenTable.com, which is the world’s largest online restaurant reservation service with over 20,000 participating restaurants in 120 countries around the globe!
Join a Rewards Program and Keep It Up
If you’re looking for a particular travel option and one of the many employees at their company knows just what it is, they may be more willing to help. Fly.com says that frequent flyers are treated like family by staff members at the airlines, hotels, and rental car companies.
A well-fitted suit or dress can improve your service at restaurants, airports, banks, and even on dates. It’s always better to look wealthier than casually dressed because people are more likely to treat you as an authority figure rather than just another customer when they see that dressing up means respect for yourself!
Keep a Bag Packed
When packing your carry-on bag, avoid using it as an opportunity to pack too much clothing and other items that you’ll end up not wearing. Instead of having bulky laptops or tablets like the MacBook Air (which takes up space) trade them in for thinner options such as eBooks rather than hardcover books; if necessary wear coats on flights instead so they don’t get mixed into checked baggage!
Customer-service numbers should be saved on your phone
Keeping customer service numbers handy is a great way to have quick access when making changes during your travels. I always carry around my cell phone, laptop and tablet with me in case anything goes wrong!
