Updated: Jul 11, 2019
Business trips can be nerve wrecking, especially in a new place or for an important meeting. To make sure that your business trip runs smoothly, it all starts with being prepared and organized.
Whether it’s your first business trip or you’re a frequent flyer, we have come up with a list of the must haves to make your business trips easier to get through:
When traveling with laptops, fancy work clothes, and confidential paperwork it's important to make sure that your luggage is safe and secure whether it's in the hotel or airport. Having your luggage stolen or belonging stolen will make your trip even more stressful. Consider spending a little more money on a piece of luggage with a lock feature to avoid any hassle.
You never know who you might meet or the connections you’ll build during the business trip. Bring plenty of them so you can make a lasting connection with them!
To-go garment steamer:
Before people can view you as a professional, you have to look the part. Showing up in clothes that are wrinkled can ruin your impression. Having a mini on the go steamer allows you to bring your favorite button down without having to take them to the dry cleaner.
Extra pair of shoes:
Having a bad pair of shoes can ruin anyone’s trip. Make sure to bring an extra pair of shoes that are comfortable for all activities from the flight, to walking a far distance, and standing.
If you’re traveling someplace far like Europe, make sure to bring travel adapters. If you’re a first-time traveler, this is something you probably haven't thought much about. Travel adapters allow you to hook up your devices into any outlet. This is especially important for making sure you charge your phone and laptop. We suggest bringing more than one, that way you’re prepared to charge whatever and whenever you want.
When traveling, it can be hard to navigate in an unknown territory. To make the trip less stressful, it's helpful to familiarize yourself with the location. One great way to do this is to start by looking at the apps available on your phone like Google maps, Google translator.
