25 Travel Tips from the Busiest Business Travelers

  1. 25 TRAVEL TIPS From the Busiest Business Travelers PRESENTED BY
  2. PLANNING
  3. MATT MULLEN @MattMullenUK Senior Analyst 451 Research 100 Travel Days per Year Make the most out of your travel by joining as many loyalty schemes as you can; that freebie late checkout or room upgrade could turn a miserable day into a great one (FlyerTalk & HeadForPoints are great resources).
  4. R “RAY” WANG @rwang0 Principal Analyst & Founder Constellation Research 200 Travel Days per Year For winter travel, book a train as backup. Get a refundable ticket. It may save your butt. Have a rental car on hold just in case the airport shuts down so you can drive to your destination. Book a room. Cancellations are typically before 6pm so it's better to be safe than sorry.
  5. MICHAEL KRIGSMAN @mkrigsman CEO Asuret 80 Travel Days per Year AirBnB can be your best friend or worst enemy– look very closely at the photos and reviews.
  6. Sign up for TSA PreCheck to check in quickly without hassles. LAURIE MCCABE @lauriemccabe Partner SMB Group 70 Travel Days per Year
  7. LAURA NURZYNSKI @lnurzynski Group Vice President, IDC 50 Travel Days per Year Always expect something to not go as planned. Lost luggage, plane delays, forgot your phone charger, only parking available is on the roof and its January and there will be 18 inches of snow on your car when you return home. Then you’ve set your expectations low and will be pleased if only one of these things happens.
  8. JAKE SOROFMAN @jakesorofman Research Director Gartner 75 Travel Days per Year Maintain folders of reading material to fill the interminable spaces between taxi and takeoff.
  9. PACKING
  10. CORY MUNCHBACH @corinnejames Research Analyst Forrester 100 Travel Days per Year Invest in a good roller bag. It's worth it.
  11. NIGEL FENWICK @nigelfenwick VP & Principal Analyst Forrester 145 Travel Days per Year If you have to fly on a regional jet, try to pack a smaller carry-on that will fit the overhead instead of a regular-sized carry-on. It will save time waiting for plane-side bag claim.
  12. ARIANNA VALENTINI @lilvprintermc Senior Research Analyst, InfoTrends 60 Travel Days per Year I tend to travel using what my friends call the “bag lady” approach. Instead of a purse, I carry a large tote with many zip pouches. I keep one for receipts (easy to find when doing expense reports later), one for liquids, and one filled with travel items like extra socks, chap stick, and tea bags. This way I never have to dig through a bag– I just pull out a labeled pouch!
  13. CORY MUNCHBACH @corinnejames Research Analyst Forrester 100 Travel Days per Year I always go with either a navy or black base for my clothing so that I can limit the number of shoes and accessories I need to coordinate.
  14. MICHAEL KRIGSMAN @mkrigsman CEO Asuret 80 Travel Days per Year Bring a battery pack for your phone– if your phone dies when you have to get directions, find an email, or whatever, then you are screwed.
  15. LAURIE MCCABE @lauriemccabe Partner SMB Group 70 Travel Days per Year Take anti-bacterial wet wipes to wipe down your tray table, arm rests, etc. And always take hand sanitizer.
  16. UNDERWAY
  17. MATT MULLEN @MattMullenUK Senior Analyst 451 Research 100 Travel Days per Year When flying across timezones – especially long-haul – set your watch to the destination time as soon as you get to the airport. Consider that time the current time and it helps fight jetlag upon arrival (but don’t miss your flight!)
  18. R “RAY” WANG @rwang0 Principal Analyst & Founder Constellation Research 200 Travel Days per Year Use your airline’s mobile app. I've tried most of them but the United one tops my list.
  19. NIGEL FENWICK @nigelfenwick VP & Principal Analyst Forrester 145 Travel Days per Year If you have to take a red-eye, eat dinner before you board to maximize your sleep time. Take a sleep aid right before you board.
  20. JAKE SOROFMAN @jakesorofman Research Director Gartner 75 Travel Days per Year Set in-flight goals for work tasks and then reward yourself with a good book or a bad movie.
  21. LAURA NURZYNSKI @lnurzynski Group Vice President, IDC 50 Travel Days per Year I use plane time to do something constructive that I enjoy. I might read a business-related or personal-interest book. And I always bring knitting. I find these activities recharge me and I can focus more on work once I arrive at my destination.
  22. JAKE SOROFMAN @jakesorofman Research Director Gartner 75 Travel Days per Year Stay hydrated and always opt for the aisle seat (these tips are logically connected).
  23. MATT MULLEN @MattMullenUK Senior Analyst 451 Research 100 Travel Days per Year Don’t steal my arm rest. I won’t say anything because I’m British, but I’ll be secretly stabbing you in my mind.
  24. DESTINATION
  25. SARAH HODGES @hodges Vice President Smarterer 50 Travel Days per Year Invest in the front desk. Be gracious and kind when you arrive - people will be more likely to hook you up with the good stuff!
  26. PAUL ENGLISH @englishpaulm Cofounder, KAYAK CEO & Cofounder, Blade 70 Travel Days per Year Don't ever pre-pay for gas at the car rental counter.
  27. SAM MELNICK @SamMelnick Senior Research Analyst, IDC 30 Travel Days per Year Avoid using the crappy hotel iron by hanging clothes in the bathroom and using the shower (at full heat) to “steam out” any wrinkles.
  28. AMANDA CARLSON-PHILLIPS @TeamEXOS VP, Nutrition and Research, Exos Great nutrition during travel can be as simple as packing your own snacks. Taking your own water bottle, home made trail mix, beef jerky, raw nuts, fruit, protein powder, tea, oatmeal packets and your favorite minimally processed bar (like Lara bars) will help you keep your energy levels high, your mood stable, and your waistline in check.
  29. JAKE SOROFMAN @jakesorofman Research Director Gartner 75 Travel Days per Year Follow a strict, monastic regimen: early to bed, early to rise and whatnot.
  30. LAURA NURZYNSKI @lnurzynski Group Vice President, IDC 50 Travel Days per Year Business travel can take you to some lovely places. I always try to take time, whether it is a half day or an hour, to enjoy something about the venue. A few weeks ago, I found myself in Half Moon Bay at the Ritz overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A client and I decided to have our last meeting of the day outside by the fire, with a cocktail and the refreshing ocean breezes.
