If you are traveling a lot, there are some things to make your trip more enjoyable. The battery is empty in your smart phone, your shirts are wrinkled and you must wait way too long for your luggage. To make your next business trip more pleasant, we have compiled a few tips and tricks for you.
How is the weather at my destination? What is the current exchange rate? Are there cultural differences that need to be considered? If these points are known, it is easy to choose the appropriate wardrobe.
2. Emergency documents online!
In the event of an emergency, you are well advised to store a copy of your ticket, your passport and the booking confirmation in your e-mail box or take it all in printed form. If something gets lost or stolen it is way easier to handle the situation.
3. Check the size!
Many of airlines have the hand luggage standardized, your trolley should ideally fit into the cabin bins. Make sure to check out the airline’s requirements before departing. It is very annoying, if you must check-in your hand luggage at the counter.
Most business travelers do not want a colorful trolley. To quickly recognize your black or gray suitcase on the baggage claim, a “FRAGIL” sticker is a discreet recognition idea. In addition, it has the advantage that the airport staff may treat your suitcase eventually more careful.
5. Roll instead of folding!
You want wrinkle free blouses and shirts when you arrive at the destination, then you should start rolling your garments instead of folding them. If you need more space in your luggage, store your socks and underwear in your extra pair of shoes.
6. Battery empty?
You have a time window between two flights and no outlet is free, then get yourself a power bank. These additional batteries can charge your smartphone or your laptop completely depending on the size. Keep in mind to charge them regularly. Our tip is a multi-plug with the matching country adapter, so you are safe. If you have access to Airport Lounges, you will find additional charging options and usually good Wi-Fi connections.
7. Avoid the jet lag!
You probably have no influence in which direction you are flying. If you go west, your day will be extended and your body can handle the adjustment much easier. But if you are heading east, you can help your body if you go to bed a little earlier in the days before you leave for your trip. Set your watch on the aircraft at local time and orient yourself immediately. For important business meetings, it is best to choose the time when you would hold a meeting at home.
8. Save time!
Searching for a parking spot at the airport, car rental pick-up and drop-off or waiting for a taxi cost a lot of time and nerves. Save your precious energy resource “time”. A chauffeur service will help you get the most out of your trip, even in stressful situations. Arrivals and pick-up at the airport or train station are guaranteed. Use the chauffeur service, to prepare your business meeting or simply for a short moment to relax.
