The 3 Best Tips for Business Travel
It’s time to start looking forward to your business trips. Discover our top tips for stress-free corporate travel!
1. Sign Up for Rewards Programs
If you’re constantly booking rental cars, hotel rooms, and flights, you might as well start earning points to use towards future travel plans. Almost every travel company has a loyalty program with reward points, so don’t forget to sign up and choose the same brands repeatedly so you can start racking up those reward points.
2. Register for TSA Pre-Check
The more you travel for business, the more time you’ll spend at the airport and in the security line. When you qualify for TSA Pre-Check, you can spend less than five minutes or less (on average) in the airport security line. Just fill out the application online, pay a requisite fee, and attend a background check and you’ll be experiencing more pleasant airport trips in no time.
3. Skip Checked Bags
When you avoid checking a bag, you can save time and money at the airport. You won’t have to worry about waiting in the customer service line before your flight or at the baggage claim after you land. If you pack light, you can fit all your belongings in a carry-on bag and personal item (usually a backpack, handbag, shoulder bag, etc.). You can pack smarter by rolling up clothes, stuffing socks inside your shoes, and using packing cubes.
