How to Survive Your First Business Trip

Traveling for business can be both an exciting and challenging experience – you probably can’t wait to explore a new destination and meet new people, but in the same time you are trying to make the most out of your time and ensure that everything runs smoothly during your business trip. With these 5 tips we will show you how you can survive and really enjoy your first business trip.

1. Pack Light

Any business traveler will tell you that packing light is the secret to efficient business traveling. If you are going on a short trip, we recommend you try to bring only a carry on – this will allow you to move quickly through the airport, without wasting your time waiting for luggage or risking losing them. Traveling for business brings a lot of challenges so it is best to plan what you need to bring with you – to make your packing more efficient, pick out an outfit for each day, bring only the things you.

2. Give yourself time

Most of the time, business travels come with a lot of delays and time-related challenges. While is difficult to tear yourself away from your office, when on a business trip leave yourself more time than you think you’ll necessarily need. If you find yourself with some free time once you get to the airport and after security check, get out your laptop, connect to the Wi-Fi and pick up on some work before boarding.

3. Organize your documents

Before leaving for a business trip, you should make sure that you have all of your travel documents organized and easily accessible. Choose the seat on the plane and check-in before you leave for the airport. Rather than carrying around paper copies of your hotel confirmations and boarding passes, use an app such as Apple Wallet or PassAndroid to download and store your travel documents and make them accessible.

4. Plan your time

Spending time in an unknown city can be challenging when traveling for business for the first time, so take advantage of your spare time by choosing some activities to keep you busy and entertained and make sure you keep yourself occupied in-between working hours. Invite co-workers or other business contacts so you can build new relationships that will bring you many benefits.
