Business travel – An overview

In today’s hectic lifestyle, it is common to see people travel a lot as part of their regular work. Continuous regular travel can be disruptive and very stressful. Here are some resourceful suggestions for frequent business travellers to help them make the best of their work related travel.

Packing for the trip

IGiven that you are likely to travel regularly, it is helpful to have a document with a checklist of necessary items for your travel. This makes your regular packing efficient and less time consuming. You can prioritize your list based on their importance ranging from absolutely essential to nice to have.

Do read about the weather in your destination and pack your clothes appropriately. It helps to have a good toilet kit to ensure that your toiletries are easily accessible and neatly packed without any chance of any liquids spilling.

Do remember that any travel is most comfortable when you have less baggage to carry around, so try to pack light.

Air travel and scheduling your work

It also helps if you are part of any loyalty or frequent flier programs which provide access to airport lounges. This helps to reduce stress during the travel. It is important to schedule your work so that you can be well rested, have a good sense of orientation in the new environment and have overcome any jetlag as you start work.

Choose the right Hotel

It is very important to select a good hotel to stay where you can rest and relax before you start work. Make sure that the hotel has good Wi-Fi connection, easily accessible to your workplace as well as restaurants and shopping areas if you need it. It is useful to have a hotel with a good business center where you can have access to a printer if needed.

Orient yourself in your new setting

It helps to talk to locals and to read about your destination to familiarize yourself with the issues or any nuances of your location. You should equip your phone with apps such as a translation tool if needed. Orient yourself using Google maps, identify key landmarks, restaurants … to familiarize yourself with the area. Remember to charge your phone and any electronic equipment the previous night so that this is not an issue as you start work.

Make the most of your work travel, learn to enjoy it

While regular travel can be stressful, many people would love to be in your shoes and travel to new locations. Travel with an open mind, understand the local culture, talk to the locals, be adventurous, try some local cuisine. Immersing yourself in the place and the people will make the experience more enjoyable and help in your business interactions.
