When you’re travelling for work, you have important company objectives to meet. Forgetting to pack essential items means delays and increased costs. It can even cause you to miss opportunities.
As a business traveller, you want to focus on your important tasks. And being held back by the nitty gritty, such as forgetting your toothpaste or downloading the wrong ride-hailing app is not one of them! That’s why we’ve compiled this business travel checklist containing everything you need to check before boarding that flight.
Whether you do corporate travel frequently, or it’s your first time, this handy checklist will help you mentally structure all your tasks so you don’t miss a thing. Keep in mind that every travel situation is different. You’ll have to shortlist the tasks under each category. With repeated trips, your basic checklist will become second nature.
In this article, we'll take a look at:
Regarding luggage, some items, such as your outfits, will vary with every trip, while others will remain the same.
You can save time by assembling your constant items in a travel bag so you can pick them up and be ready to go. Ensure you don’t use these items when you’re not travelling. Otherwise, you’ll leave them out and forget to put them back!
In the interest of sustainability, refill the bottles when you get home instead of discarding them and buying mini packs. This will also help you reduce travel costs.
When it comes to your clothes, pack wrinkle-resistant items and easy to layer. Solid colours and neutrals can easily be reused for various outfits, so you’ll have to pack fewer clothes. Don’t forget your workout clothes and your shoes!
Here is a list of all the travel documents you’ll need:
