Before heading out on your trip, check the weather for your destination. It is always a good idea to pack a pair of sneakers in case you sightsee after work, sunglasses and an umbrella. Packing layers is also an excellent idea, since you can always add clothing if the evening is chillier than the day. If you’ll be gone for a business week, three suits that can be mixed and matched with five different shirts will suffice for work hours. 

2. Pick Good Accommodations

If the company you work for will allow you to select your accommodations, consider short term lodging as a possibility. This type of lodging can give you the benefit of feeling as though you are staying in a home rather than a hotel. When on the road for business, it can be nice to feel as though you are returning to a cozy home at the end of a busy workday.

Before you finish your last workday before the upcoming trip,  be sure to review your travel arrangements. Is your transportation booked for the correct date and time? Have you confirmed your lodging accommodations? Double-check these details and print them to ensure you have the information readily available.

In your excitement to hit the road for work travel, don’t forget to attend to the details before departing. Pack suitable attire, pick comfortable accommodations and carefully review the logistics before embarking on your trip.
