Business Travel Tips to Make Hitting the Road more Productive

Being at the height of the business travel season, a significant number of executives are on the road. Between time spent flying and taking ground transportation to and from the hotel, as well as meetings, there is often a lot of downtime when traveling for business. Instead of letting this time go to waste, there are a number of tips that will help you stay productive. Here is a list of our best business travel tips to help you maintain your productivity while traveling.

Getting Prepared

Before you leave on your next business trip, consider the different things that will help you stay productive. The following are suggestions offered by frequent business travelers:

  • Mobile Device Charger – Although many of the larger airports have free charging stations, due to a high volume of travelers it can sometimes be difficult to find an open station. Therefore, you might want to pack your own charger. While a plug-in unit will work, if your mobile device supports it, a wireless charger is even better. 

  • Portable Wi-Fi – This too is a great way to stay productive while being on the road. Since you never know if you will be in a good spot for Wi-Fi connection or not, taking your own offers tremendous value.

  • In the Cloud – Be sure that all pertinent documents are uploaded to the cloud. With this, you can open documents from your smartphone or tablet for review while traveling.

Travel Suggestions

  • Wi-Fi Enabled Flight - You can also book a flight that offers in-flight Wi-Fi capability. That way, you are not stuck for hours with a corny movie or uninteresting magazine. With this, you can focus on work and catch up on any correspondence if needed. 

  • Mobile Applications – There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of mobile applications that will allow you to stay productive while on a business trip. Depending on the type of work you do, you can scour the Internet for the perfect application.

  • Proper Nutrition – Even eating and drinking healthy foods while traveling will keep you energized so that as you fly or take ground transportation, you are not tempted to sneak in a nap. Stay away from fatty and high carbohydrate foods, choosing fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, and other energy foods instead. 

  • Hire a Chauffeur – Without question, using the services of a reputable limousine company is the most convenient and efficient mode of ground transportation. By having a private chauffeur, you can enjoy peace and quiet that allows you to focus on work. When using limo services, you never have to worry about finding the best route, loading your luggage, or getting stuck in traffic. Instead, the driver will get you to your destination on time and in a safe manner, while treating you like royalty.
