1. Do Not Run Out of Juice
We do not mean literal juice that you drink, we mean power. Traveling for business means you need your electronics charged up and ready to go. Make sure you pack a portable battery (or a couple of portable batteries) to make sure your phone does not die.
If your job requires you to constantly check emails and not miss important meetings then making sure your phone is never dead is key. Also, make sure you have this in your carry on luggage, you do not want to accidentally pack it in your checked luggage.
2. Do Not Check a Bag
If you can avoid checking a bag in that will save you time and headaches. Checked bags can be lost and then you will have to deal with luggage claims and waiting for your bag to be found. If you are traveling on business this can be a huge inconvenience because you are going to be left waiting for your business clothes unless you go out and buy new ones.
You will also save time if you do not check a bag in. You can skip check-in lines when you arrive at the airport and as soon as you land you are ready to go because you have your bag with you. Make sure you follow the TSA guidelines on carrying on liquids.
3. Pack Casual Clothes
Because you are traveling for business you might only have suits and business outfits packed up. While that is important because you are traveling for business, after all, make sure that you also pack casual clothing.
You might have some downtime to explore the area and having casual clothes to do so will be more comfortable. If you work out, pack some gym clothes as well to not interrupt your daily routine.
4. Hotel Location
When you are booking your hotel try to choose one that is close to where you will be conducting business or close to the conference you are attending. This will help you avoid dealing with morning commute traffic, or any traffic in general. Ask the person in charge if there is a preferred hotel in the city and if there is a discount you can use.
5. Detailed Itinerary
Once you have everything booked it’s time to put together a detailed itinerary to keep you on track. Make sure you include your meetings, your flight, your hotel, etc. You can use itinerariy templates to make your life easier.
