Traveling for business or for pleasure? If the answer is “business” there are a few things you can do to make the experience more enjoyable. You may be traveling for work, but you’re traveling after all. Make the most of it with our expert tips.

Make a Checklist

No matter how much time you spend traveling, it’s always easy to forget something. Take the time to make a travel checklist and avoid stresses such as a misplaced passport, a lost document, or a late train. Use a checklist app on your smartphone, or make a list you can keep in your pocket the day of travel.

Keep Snacks on your Carry-on

If you’re an experienced business traveler, you understand that hunger can strike at the most inconvenient times. Your flight could be delayed, your meeting could go longer than expected, or you could run into inclement weather. Keep a snack or two on your person for emergency cases.

Record Room Numbers

When you’ve been on the road for weeks on end, remembering that you’re staying in room 226 could be the last thing on your mind. Take advantage of your smartphone and punch in the numbers of your hotel rooms as soon as you hear them.

Book a Car

Booking your flight and your hotel is only half of the journey. How are you getting there? Luckily for you, the Franklin Chauffeur is a highly qualified service that specializes in corporate travel. Don’t take the chance of ordering an Uber that may never show. Rather, one of our drivers will pick you up, help you with your luggage, and get you to your gate on time.
