The necessity to travel for business has never been higher than it is now, as the world becomes increasingly connected. According to Fast Company, Bruce Poon Tip, the founder of G Adventures, an adventure travel company, says, “When you’re attempting to build a global brand, you need to think outside wherever the walls of your office are.”
There are benefits to business travel that go beyond room service breakfast and daily clean bedding. Work excursions might help pay for part—or possibly all—of your next holiday with a little forethought. To get you started, here’s a straight-point strategy.
Put together your own mobile office
Make sure you have a travel office kit with all of your essential office supplies. You must be able to continue working regardless of where you are — at the airport, in a taxi, or at the client’s office reception. “I take a compact power cord with four connectors for when you can only find that one outlet at the airport but you need to power up to three gadgets for the travel ahead,” explains Kayla Wagner of Revel Interactive. I also pack a book or audiobook, as well as good old-fashioned pen and paper, for when there is no Wi-Fi.”
Try the stopover
After all, the road to hell is paved with missed connections, thus most seasoned travelers will only book indirect flights under duress. If you want to save money on your trip, with AirlinesMap you select a different route on a business trip. One that intentionally interrupts the journey so that the layover can serve as a vacation. Before you book (and possibly with your boss), double-check airline permissions and costs on this, but keep in mind that more and more airlines are following Icelandair’s no-fee strategy, which has helped alter tourism in Reykjavik. If you’re still worried about missing connections, go to a sunny region like Florida or the Caribbean, which are less likely to be affected by the blight.
Keep an eye on health
Health is a form of riches. Drink plenty of water. Carry hand sanitizer with you; you’ll be visiting more public locations and touching things that have been touched by others, such as in airports. Taxis will be your mode of transportation. Protect yourself from pathogens. To avoid travel tiredness, take precautions.
Pick your credit card based on where you live
Using your credit card to pay for cheap accommodations hotels and flights should always be rewarding. Are you perplexed by the vast array of credit cards available? Don’t be that way. Sign up for the relevant carrier’s card if you live in a big city where an airline has a hub—Dallas for American Airlines, San Francisco for United Airlines. The rationale is that you’ll most likely fly that airline on most trips because it has the most direct flights; you’ll also earn points and status more quickly (leading to upgrades and freebies whether you’re on a business trip or vacation).
Double-check your miles
Before you fly, see Where to Credit after you’ve purchased a flight. The web of airline alliances is confusing and uneven, but this automated tool can help you navigate it: enter the carrier and fare class (X, V, K, and so on), and the site’s algorithm will show you all the programs for which that flight can earn miles, as well as the miles that correspond to those programs. Then you can pick and choose which programs to credit. Note that international airlines are frequently more liberal with mileage accrual than domestic partners—despite recently tightening some of its regulations, Aegean, United’s Greek Star Alliance sibling, is exceptionally generous.
Traveling for business is also getting more common. Business travel frequently entails foreign travel as well as extensive domestic travel. To operate a business in a new location or nation, you may need to fly to attend trade fairs, conferences, networking events, or meet new clients. Costs can add up when you are not aware of these hacks like how to save money or how to find cheap airfare anywhere. For your ease, here above we’ve mentioned all these business travel hacks that are really helpful for all travelers.
