Master Packing for a One-Day Business Trip

Early Morning Departure. Late Night Arrival. If you’ve ever experienced a one-day business trip, then you know this travel routine all too well. Companies try their best to trim off extra expenses; so while a quick turnaround trip is fiscally responsible; it can be exhausting to the body. Take a look at our list of quick business trip hacks that will keep you calm, organized, and rested.

GET PLENTY OF REST

Travel days can be grueling. Try to get plenty of sleep the night before your trip.

TRAVEL LIGHT

For a one-day business trip, we suggest traveling with a messenger bag/ bookbag that can hold a laptop, files, wallet, and small personal grooming items.

BRING A PHONE CHARGER

Stay fully charged and connected, especially if a flight cancellation or delay occurs. Many airports now have charging stations so you can charge up before or after your flight.

WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES AND CLOTHES

Dress professional, but be comfortable, especially when it comes to your shoes. More than likely, you will need to put your feet to work at the airport.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF TSA PRE-CHECK

Apply for the TSA Pre-Check program to avoid long security lines and make getting to your gate quick and easy.

KEEP YOUR TRAVEL AGENT ON SPEED DIAL

Be prepared in the instance that your flight gets delayed or canceled. Have your travel agent’s phone number handy in case you need to call them to make hotel accommodations or alternate travel plans.
