7 Tips For Business Travelers

Business travel: love it or hate it. While many people see it as a perk, especially when they get to combine business and leisure, frequent business travelers often find it inconvenient, even uncomfortable. 

Traveling for business can be challenging, yes. However, experienced travelers know that they can have a much better experience when they follow certain rules that are guaranteed to work. On this list you’ll find a complete list of business travel tips and tricks that will help you navigate your next trip like a pro!

1. Check your company’s business travel policy

Before you start planning your trip, make sure to check your company’s rules, procedures, and do’s & don’ts when it comes to corporate travel. Here you’ll find more information about corporate travel, which include things such as where to book your trip, who needs to approve it, what expenses you can claim a refund for, and how the refund process works. 

2. Keep your essentials packed and ready to go in your suitcase

Keep your essential items, such as toiletries and medicines, always at hand and ready to pack. If you travel often, it’s a great idea to keep these items in a case which you only use for your trips.

3. Keep your essentials handy when on the road

Boarding passes, IDs, important documents, your phone, agenda, credit card, wallet… Pack them together where you can always easily find them when you need them. There’s nothing worse than not finding your ID when you get to the gate, and delaying the boarding while you unpack everything in a burst of panic!

4. Bring your (travel size) toiletries

You want to look your best at that important business meeting, but we all know those hair products from the hotel probably won’t cut it. Even if your hotel offers many quality toiletries, there’s nothing like your own products, which are the best match for your needs—so bring them along!

5. Do your research on foreign business etiquette

You’ve prepared your speech and you have all your stats ready, what else? Depending on where you’re traveling, business etiquette can be very different from your own country. Make sure to check the basic rules beforehand, so you’ll be able to stretch that client’s hand—or not—with confidence!

6. Download helpful apps

From your company’s travel and expense management software to your hotel and rental car providers, in today’s world apps can give you access to an easier way of doing things. Other helpful apps for business travel are Uber, taxi apps, and apps for booking coworking and meeting rooms.

7. Leave reviews

Did you enjoy your stay at the serviced apartment? Was your customer care agent nice to you? Be kind and leave a good review! You might be back at the same serviced apartment next time, and it will give them something nice to remember you for.

We hope you found these travel hacks helpful! Now it’s time to put them into practice on your next business trip: wherever you’re traveling, we wish you a comfortable and successful business trip.
