Is traveling in business a must for you? Do you spend a lot of time away from home and your job requires mobility? These tips will make you more confident about traveling and help you focus on the purpose of why you’re away.
First, if you travel a lot, think about keeping all your travel-size toiletries prepacked, always. It reduces time and stress. As for the inside of the suitcase, follow the rule that whatever you think you need, take less. To adjust your outfit to the temperature make blazers, scarves or other small, but necessary accessories with you. Finally, pack all your charging devices in the same bag. If you are planning on working on the plane, make sure your tools are all charged with leaving.
Make a back up
Remember to keep hard copies and digital copies of travel documents (for example licenses, passports, birth certificate, health insurance card, etc. and necessary phone numbers) which will be ready to go in case of an emergency. Peace of mind is priceless.
Get some Bitcoins
Do you travel all around the word and hate caring on cash and exchanging money? Check out Bitcoin – the most popular digital currency in the world, accepted by over 7 000 merchants worldwide. Use Coinmap, No interest, and Bitcoin Restaurants to find companies which accept Bitcoin.
Limit time you spend at the airport
Pack your things in a carry-on bag. Remember that all liquids, gels and aerosols you take in the cabin on international flights must be under 100 ml each. You can find a huge range of travel-sized shampoos, body washes, and cleansers at most pharmacies and supermarkets these days. Before you go, check in for your flight online and go straight to security at the airport. As George Clooney’s character in the romantic comedy, Up In The Air, points out you lose thirty minutes a flight checking your bag. If you don’t check baggage, you won’t have to wait for it when you land (and it won’t be lost). Stick with the carry-on.
Dress up a little
People get much better service when they dress well and appear wealthier. Also, having a business look that doubles as presentation attire while traveling is wise in case your baggage is lost or if you are late – at least, you won’t be stuck with jeans for the business meeting.
Get cheap wi-fi wherever you want
Hotels and airports usually provide free WiFi. But what if you spent most of your time traveling by cars, buses or trains? Simply, get an SIM prepaid card with Internet service included. Some cell phones provide a hotspot. If yours doesn’t, there are devices that connect to cell towers and allow you to use your laptop just like at home.
Save money on booking hotels
The best place to start looking for a good hotel at a reasonable price is an online booking website. It will allow you to compare accommodation options, give you the lowest rates and show you opinions of travelers. Furthermore, you can even get cash back for your hotel room reservation. Hotelgo24.com offers Bitcoin Cashback Program. Each booked accommodation that is succeeded by a paid stay in the chosen accommodation facility is awarded a cashback in Bitcoin – up to 5%.
