Business travel, it can be luxurious or disappointing, it can be stressful or stress-free. It all depends on how well you plan and prepare. So we’ve put together some of our top tips for business travel.
1. Plan ahead.
The most important step is to plan ahead, if you’re not planning ahead you may miss out on the better accommodation especially in Milton Keynes as things get booked up quickly. You may also have to pay more for your stay if the cheaper options are gone.
There is nothing more stressful than trying to find somewhere nice to stay in Milton Keynes when nearly everywhere is sold out!
2. Eat Smart
Business travel can often come as an excuse to eat out and very unhealthy, any why not, the company is paying right?
What you don’t want to do is let yourself go, it’s not a good idea to eat out all the time in unhealthy restaurants, try cooking from your serviced apartment to make things easier (and cheaper).
3. Buy Local
Whilst you’re away on business it gives you a great opportunity to test out the local food, attractions and so on. Get yourself a local paper to start with, this will give you a great insight into what is going on and what you can get up to in the area. Try the Milton Keynes Citizen or Destination MK if you want to look online before you arrive.
4. Prepare you tech
When away on business you’ll be expected to do just that – business. So you need to have your tech ready for when you go, if you usually use a desktop then you’ll need to sort yourself some sort of mobile device ready to access emails and any work you need to do.
5. Home Comforts
Going away on business can cause you to feel a bit homesick or when you get back to your room you will not want to switch off. Taking something from home can help with this. Even better, why not stay in a serviced apartment which will feel a lot more like home compared with a hotel room.
There you have it, five great tips to help with your business travel, have fun on your trip!
