Packing tips from experienced travelers:
Traveling for business can get a little tiresome. We’ve gathered some tips from experienced travelers to help make your trips go more smoothly. Here are some things to put in your carry-on bag that will save you time and hassle.
First of all, invest in a good, durable carry-on bag that conforms to TSA size requirements. If you don’t need to check a bag, you’ll save some money, and you’ll breeze right in and out of the airport.
Pack a little “first aid” kit with essentials like pain reliever, bandaids, vitamins, your meds, Pepto-Bismol, etc.
Pack a travel size or disposable toothbrush in your carry-on. The Colgate Wisp is perfect for this purpose, and doesn’t even require water. Also pack some facial wipes, and you’ll have a way to freshen up if you’re running from your flight straight to a meeting.
Make sure you have a cell phone and laptop charger in your carry-on. That way, when you get to the airport, all you have to do is find an outlet. And just make sure before you leave your house or the hotel room to go to the airport, your devices are fully charged to start with.
Another tech tip is to invest in a personal wi-fi hotspot to take with you. This can save you some serious money over time if you use wi-fi in the airport or at convention centers, etc. They are small and simple to use, and can be a great antidote to that spotty internet service in some hotels too.
We all know it’s important to stay hydrated when traveling. Our tip is to invest in a water bottle with a filter, and slip it (empty) into your carry-on. You save money by not having to buying bottled water, and you are not using disposable plastic bottles.
Best business travel tip of all: Remember to reserve your car with American City Express to take you to and from the airport. It’s the finest car service in Newark NJ.
