Whether you’re an expert business traveller, or you just want to travel like one, these 10 travel essentials will help you on your way. Here’s what the Clearview team would suggest you take on board:
Planes, airports and hotels are not known for their outstanding cleanliness and the last thing you want when you are travelling for business is to pick up a bug and miss the important meeting – or trip, altogether.
If your flight is long haul, it’s recommended to always wear flight socks to ease discomfort and reduce the risk of blood clots that can occur from frequent long flights.
International power adaptors
It’s really worth investing in good quality power adaptors to make sure your devices work well when travelling to different countries.
First aid kit
Plan ahead and pack plasters, paracetamol and saline solution. You never know when you might need it!
Stay hydrated and prevent jet lag by carrying a water bottle with you at all times. You can carry an empty bottle and fill it up after you get through security.
Nothing eases travel anxiety quite like being organised. Keep all of your important travel documents in one, easy to access place.
Travel repair kit
Pack super glue, a needle and thread, spare buttons, safety pins and a zip tie. You’ll be glad you packed these if a zipper, button or item of luggage breaks when you’re on the go.
A good quality pair of headphones
There will be times when you are travelling when you need to shut out the background noise and concentrate on a business phone call, writing an email, or simply enjoying your own personal music.
It sounds obvious, but many busy executives sometimes forget the simplest things. Always take some local currency with you as you can never be sure how easy it will be to exchange money when you arrive at your destination.
A simple envelope can be one of the most helpful things on your business travels, perfect for holding receipts to claim back any expenses you might need to make.
