Business Travel Tips


Take time to be a local:

Make sure your trip isn't all work; do a little research to find at least one place in the area to visit, from a local micro-brewery to that stadium you've always wanted to see.


Embrace Delays:

Take advantage of frustrating travel hiccups; delayed flights or trains offer the perfect opportunity to call a friend to catch up.



Create down time

Make time for yourself. Whether it's waking up early to enjoy a cup of coffee and read a paper, or taking a jog before starting your day.


Be selective:

Hotel selection is paramount for business travelers; in addition to proximity and price, look for amenities such as free internet, access to a gym and/or pool, on-site dining options and a business center where you can print documents.


Separate work/sleep space:

Whenever possible, avoid working on the bed; work at the desk area of the room. Separating work and rest helps create a more relaxing travel experience.


Know your technology needs:

Invest in a wireless card and bring multiple charges (for the car and wall outlet use) so you can remain connected throughout your trip.
