Following are some easy to plan and execute hacks which can leave you stress-free at these business trips:-

As time is money so save your time instead of waiting in ques to check-in your luggage. Be innovative and try to use the pockets and compartments in every corner of your bag. Choose the bag accordingly so that all your electricals like chargers are easy to find and can be put back easily without opening the clothes section.
- Pack small and keep only the basics. There is no limit of clothes a person wants to carry with him/her but remember you are not going for a holiday, so there is no need to carry casual clothes, a single pair is enough. Carry minimal items in your luggage. You can repeat your clothes by exchanging the pairs each day. Co-ordinate your limited clothes and accessories and keep it simple since it is a business trip.
- Make sure you save the battery of your electronic devices like mobile phone, laptop, E-book reader, headphones, etc. Charge all your devices fully before leaving. You might need these devices on the go. They might contain your travel ticket, booking confirmations, entertainment files etc.
- In case you have forgotten to carry the charging device of any of your electronic items, do not panic. There are many hacks to conserve the battery by turning off their background apps, lowering the background light, and turning off the Bluetooth.
- Always carry your itinerary with you. Search about the place where you are travelling to. To refrain from anxiety in a new city, you must be prepared according to the day. Know what is expected from you and plan your day accordingly.
- Know how you are going to travel in the new city. Carry contacts of cabs and other local transports and be aware of the public transport of the place.
- Book your stay and your two-way ticket way before the travelling date, as it will cost a lot more cheaper than booking on time. Either confirm the tickets yourself or get it done by the corporate business travel management team in advance.
