Someone once described business travel as a long commute that takes you to an office where you see a different set of cubicles and walls. While this is true to an extent, there are many things that you can do to make your business travel more enjoyable, such as using a company like Premier Limousine Inc. to transport you to and from the airport. In November 2013, Businessweek.com published the results of a survey that contained business travel tips. Following are a few of the tips that were contained in the survey.
Leave a Suitcase Behind
If you frequently travel to the same hotel, you might want to leave a packed suitcase with them. The suitcase would contain items like a change of business attire, overnight clothing, a toiletries bag, workout clothes, etc. If the hotel is willing to keep it for you, this eliminates the necessity of taking a cumbersome carry-on bag. If you can’t leave a packed bag at places you frequently visit, leave a packed bag at home. Then you don’t have to bother with packing it each time you get ready to leave.
Curtains in hotel rooms don’t always shut tightly. When they don’t they can allow light into the room that can disturb your sleep. Try taking a few small clothes pins with you. Then you can clip the curtains together and keep the light out.
Pack Everything at the Same Time
Packing a few of your items early and a few immediately before you leave might cause you to forget some important things. Some executives have found it beneficial to dedicate a drawer or area specifically for travel items. In this drawer, store things like toiletries, a travel alarm, a change of clothes, extra cords, etc. Then when it is time to pack, pack everything all at once. This will help ensure you don’t forget anything.
Use a Checklist App
There are many checklist apps designed for smart phones. Dedicate one list to your travel needs. Make a list of items to pack as well as to do items such as remembering to call for a ride from a company like Premier Limousine Inc. Keeping the list and referring back to it every time you travel will help make the job of packing become routine.
