5 Expert Tips for Stress Free Business Travel
- February 15, 2016
Travelling for business isn’t fun. For those who travel for work frequently, it can be extremely stressful. As well as stressing about getting to the airport, checking in on time and making sure you have all your documents, there is also the added stress of whatever work commitment has you flying to a different country in the first place. That’s without factoring in packing, hotels and language barriers!
As a company who specialises in executive airport transfers within London, we’re experts in getting business professionals to the airport on time. Along the way, we’ve picked up some helpful tips that should help you take the stress out of business travel.
Hire a Professional Chauffeur
Don’t stress yourself out even more by relying on public transport; hire an executive chauffeur so that you don’t have to worry about getting to the airport on time. You’ll be able to sit back and relax or make some last minute phone calls before you get to the airport. A good chauffeur driver will take care of everything, including keeping a close eye on traffic and flight times.
Charge all Your Electricals
You don’t want to arrive at the airport and realise that your laptop or iPad has no battery. It’s essential that you make sure everything is charged up completely before leaving the house, so that you have full access to any notes or emails that may be required before you land. Waiting in the airport gives you a few hours to catch up on any necessary work before you board and it would be frustrating to miss out on this because you forgot to charge your laptop.
Start your day off the right way by making sure you get plenty of sleep the night before travelling. You might not have time to sleep on or after the flight and you don’t want to arrive at your meeting feeling and looking tired. If you’re planning on doing work whilst on the plane, we recommend getting lots of sleep beforehand.
Anyone who travels frequently for business will understand the importance of travelling light. It’s rare that you’ll find someone checking in a huge suitcase – people usually stick to one travel bag. This means you don’t have to waste time checking in luggage or spend hours at the baggage reclaim when you land. Plan ahead; find out exactly what you’ll need and then just take the bare minimum.
Check in Online
Checking-in online is perfect for business travellers who are already stressed about travelling. It will save you a lot of time when in the airport and it means that you won’t have to arrive at the airport as early as other people. You’ll just have to go through security!
