We’ve collected a few tips from frequent business travellers that can be used by all other business travellers. These time-saving tips help make the travelling stress-free and ensure you get to your flight with plenty time to spare.
Get your boarding pass up to 24 hours in advance and breeze through to immigration since you don’t have to waste your time in airport queues. Even if you’re checking in luggage, there’s usually a separate counter for ‘luggage only’. Most importantly, it tells that airline you’re coming and prevents them from selling your ticket last minute.
Put together your ‘travel’ uniform
Having a few go-to wardrobe ensembles ready helps to keep your bag light and avoids over packing. Every season, have a few essentials are can be mix-and-matched and limit yourself to 1-2 pairs of shoes on the trip. Pack your skinniest pair of shoes and wear the most space-hogging pair to the airport. Also, rolls your clothes instead of folding them – it helps save space and allows you to see your clothes better in the luggage.
Get a worldwide plug adapter
Even landed in a foreign country and realised you didn’t bring the correct adapter? Stop wasting money on separate adaptors and get yourself a quality worldwide plug adapter- it will offer different pins and sockets to cover a wide variety of global connecting needs. Keep this in your travel bag so you will never forget to pack it. Now you’ll be fully charged and connected while travelling!
Have a bag packed with standard essentials
To save time and your sanity, keep and extra set of phone and computer chargers packed and ready to go in your travel bag. Other things to have packed and ready: a ziplock of your toiletries, portable external chargers and a small bag of medication. This is also great if you’re called last-minute and barely have time to pack.
