Best Business Travel Tips & Tricks
Business Travel can be stressful and can interfere with your personal life and well being. Like many business skills, planning and learning the tips and tricks can help to make your travel enjoyable, efficient and bypass the many pitfalls. As travel professionals, we have gathered together a list of useful information that will help you in the near future.
Stick with your priorities - When people travel to another city they may do random things which compromises their plans and time management. Stick to your priorities and do what you are familiar with. You can try something new, but not at the expense of your priorities, if it is a waste of time.
Eat really well, stay fit and exercise - Generally someone else will be paying for your own food, so eat a controlled amount of good quality, healthy food. Many people eat very poor quality food and tend to overeat when they travel because they are often tired and choose the fast food options. Good food and plenty of rest and some exercise is a great remedy for threatening stress.
Maintain life and work balance over multiple time frames - Avoid regrets and conflicts with your family and friends. This means not missing important occasions and sharing times during the day. It also means maintaining the balance in the longer term - planning to take days off to spend with the family. If you show you are good at your job, and you have to travel a lot most bosses will understand that you need to have planned days off built into your schedule.
Ensure You Get Elite Status - You absolutely need the extra benefits of an elite status and you need to convince your boss or company that this is a necessity. Elite status flyers recieve benefits such as private reservations phone number, get access to dedicated check-in, get priority upgrades into first class, and many more. This helps you to be better at your job and maintain schedules and avoid unnecessary confusion and stress. You get better service and are able to relax more when you fly business class.
