5 Business Travel Tips for the Stylish Entrepreneur

23 December, 2019

business travel tips

Business travelers might only represent 12% of flight passengers, but they also account for 75% of the airline's profit.

This statistic shows how much you travel compared to the average person on vacation.

Make the most of your frequent flying miles not just with points but by making your trip comfortable and stress-free.

Read on to learn the top five business travel tips to use during your next flight.

1. Carry on Luggage Only

Skip the baggage claim when traveling for business by packing light. You can fit everything you need in a carry-on that acts as a laptop bag as well.

By carrying on your luggage, you save time and the hassle of waiting for your bag to get unpacked from the plane. This also eliminates the chances of your luggage getting lost and/or damaged during the flight.

2. Pack Healthy Snacks

For the corporate traveler, meals may consist of unhealthy airport fast food and minibar snacks. This is not the best way to stay healthy.

By bringing your own nutritious snacks you don't have to go searching for a decent restaurant while stuck in your terminal. In the hotel, you can have a quick bite whenever you need it just in case room service has closed.

3. Join a Rewards Program

This list of traveling for work tips wouldn't be complete without mentioning reward programs. Use your travel frequency to your advantage.

Hotels and airlines value their customers that keep coming back. You can get rooms compensated, priority booking, access to lounges, and free upgrades when you rack up points.

You can also sign up for a credit card that rewards travel. This is a great way to get double the benefits when booking hotels and flights with your card.

4. Exercise and Stretch

Whether you are in between flights or finally made it to your room be sure to get your blood moving.

Exercising and stretching can give you the boost you need to make an early meeting without jet lag bringing you down. It also reduces cramping from those long periods of sitting on planes.

Visit your hotel gym or pool to get your day started and feel energized throughout the day. Be sure to book a hotel that offers these amenities for free.

5. Use a Transportation Service

As a business traveler, you are subject to tight schedules. You can't rely on taxis, public transportation, or car riding services.

Make sure you get to your meeting, conference, or back to your hotel for some much-needed sleep in style. Choose luxury transportation like a chauffeured car or a bus service for your employees going to corporate events.

Business Travel Tips For Fun

Business travel tips aren't all about work. You should also take advantage of your traveling opportunities. Plan some extra time during your trip to visit a local museum, check out a popular restaurant, or explore the landscape with a hike or swim.
