Until now you’ve probably gone through the same routine every day: driving to the office every day, sit at your desk, maybe with a cup of coffee, perhaps after talking a little bit with your coworkers. The only time that you skip this and leave the city is when you take a vacation. Because of all these things, you may be a little nervous about making your first business trip. The travel manager has provided you with the schedule and your first impression is that it looks impossible to follow. Fortunately for you, we’re here to tell you that corporate travel doesn’t have to be as frightening or confusing as it may seem at first glance.
When you have to take a trip across the country for work reasons, just remember to follow these tips to ensure your trip goes smoothly. Before you know it, you’ll be traveling like a pro!
Start On the Right Foot
Our first advice is to reexamine your packing strategy. When you’re rushing through the airport to catch your flight on time, the last thing you need is to worry about dragging a huge suitcase behind you. It just doesn’t look too professional. You should maintain a professional attitude and attire even if you’re in the airport and therefore nowhere near your scheduled meeting. To look your best and be able to move smoothly and quickly through the airport, put a little bit of additional time and effort into packing.
First of all, think about upgrading your carry-on luggage. Choose one of the plenty of bags out there that will have enough room to include everything you need while being away. A well-known trick is to roll your clothes to save space and to leave non-essential accessories at home. If you can pack your belongings in a carry-on bag, you won’t have to deal with checked luggage fees and, most importantly, you won’t have to wait at the baggage carousel for your suitcase either.
Every person has to pass through airport security. It’s considered a necessary evil, but there are ways to get through it faster. Try not to get stuck behind people that aren’t prepared because you might end up missing your flight. An experienced corporate travel professional will have already enlisted in the TSA PreCheck program. Several airlines offer the added amenity which can accelerate the screening process and get you to your gate with enough time to spare. When you make it for the PreCheck program, you don’t have to worry about taking off shoes, laptops, belts, liquids or light jackets. This will give you the possibility to make it through like a true corporate VIP.
Corporate Airport Transportation
Another way you can differentiate yourself from the rest of the airline travelers is to use a Corporate Airport Transportation Car Service to reach the airport. This way, you won’t have to worry about leaving your car unguarded in an unsupervised parking space. You can leave it at home and choose to be picked up by a chauffeur and relax while they deal with the traffic. The driver will help you with your bags, bring you at the closest gate and have updated flight information, so there is no need for you to worry about missing your flight or sitting around the airport and getting bored if it happens to be delayed.
So, if you’re the lucky winner of a business trip for your company, don’t let it stress you out. You can succeed in being a travel pro even if it’s your first business flight. Make sure you print out copies of the layout of the airport before getting there so you can have a working knowledge of where you need to be.
