If you’re like us, we’ve gotten used to not travelling for business in recent months. Remote working and keeping travel local has got us thinking about how we wish to travel for business again.
Do you ever wish you could add some luxury and style to your next business trip?
Many of us dread business travel for the drudgery of the airport, security checks, and mundane hotels.
However, it doesn’t need to be this way! Now is the time to get more of what you want on your next long-haul journey. There are a few tricks and tips you can use to turn your next business trip into a relaxing and enjoyable adventure.
Keep reading to find our top five traveling for work tips. Then, turn your next work trip into an experience to remember.
1. Head to the Airport Lounge
When you have to travel for work, you need to maximize your time. Time spent waiting at the airport can be spent on Zoom calls, replying to emails, or planning strategy.
But don’t waste your time in busy terminals or airport food courts. Instead, arrive early and head straight to the business lounge.
You can relax in style with a bite to eat or a glass of bubbly and enjoy the quiet, distraction-free lounge. Every frequent business traveler needs an airport lounge membership, as it can take a lot of stress out of flying.
2. Hire a Driver
To get to and from the airport, avoid taxis or public transportation. To really arrive in style, hire a limousine service.
You’ll be picked up from home or work and taken straight to the airport, and you can also arrange a driver to meet you at your destination.
While on the road, you can unwind before your flight in luxury and comfort of your limo, or even use the time to take an urgent call in the privacy of the back of the vehicle.
It’s by far the most luxurious way to travel for work, ensuring you arrive on time and relax.
3. Stick to Carry On
One of our top work travel tips is to travel light. Minimize your wardrobe to a few key pieces and travel with carry-on only.
This will save time when you arrive at your destination, you don’t need to worry about the airline misplacing your luggage, and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that all your work documents and items are safely by your side.
4. Book the Right Hotel
Work travel doesn’t have to mean a dreary motel. Look for a luxury hotel near your meetings or events that has all the amenities a high-flying traveler needs.
This includes in-room WiFi, dining options, concierge services, and comfortable rooms with a desk. At the end of the day, you can retreat to your hotel for a drink after dinner or a relaxing soak in the tub.
5. Dress for Comfort
Even on long-haul flights, it’s possible to be both comfortable and stylish! Look for comfortable, breathable fabrics like cotton or linen, and pair with flats or ankle boots.
Accessorize with a scarf, blazer, or cardigan. They’re helpful when the plane gets cold, plus they can double as a blanket.
