3 Quick Business Travel Tips
I just came back from visiting my client in Montana. And even though it’s pretty cool that you can visit three different states in one day (and still be back at your office the next day), I don’t recommend it.
I’m shocked that I made all of my connections (although I was running through the airport at full speed to catch my flight home).
Traveling for business today is very stressful. But there are some things you can do to make it more relaxing and productive.
Here are my quick tips:
1. Plan ahead.
Try to plan your trip in advance as much as possible.
You’ll have a better chance of reserving better seats and the flights you want. Plus, you’ll have time to organize your hotel room, rental car, directions, and other pertinent items.
2. Confirm. Confirm. Confirm.
Right before your trip, be sure to confirm all of your accomodations. This is a great way to avoid potential problems and get your schedule ready.
Plus, you never know when an airline might change your flight time or seat without telling you!
3. Be patient.
When you need to deal with bulky luggage, complaining travelers, tight seats, and long flights, it’s best not to let the negativity get to you.
Instead, take deep breaths, read something positive or listen to your favorite music.
I know this may sound redundant, but is it really worth it to let a simple business trip give you more wrinkles and gray hair?
When I travel, I try to look at it as an adventure to learn something new and work on my patience levels. Then, if the trip does not go well, at least I’ve improved my education and my well being in the process!
