We base what we pack on what we are going to do which is related to the business trip. Sometimes, we forget that there may be other things unrelated to the purpose of the trip that we need to pack for.
It is common to overlook when planning a trip that we are not on the job 24 hours during the whole duration of the stay. Leisure and recreation are two essential business travel tips to remember in order to keep us at the top of our game. Thus, when packing, we should consider this too.
Packing light for travel is one of the most common travel packing tips around. I also believe in these business travel tips but with the added stipulation that one should pack light enough. For instance when planning what to pack, considering the amenities you wish to avail of at your business hotel would be a good idea.
Swim wear if there is a pool section, sweats if you would like to make use of the gym, and clothes for some night life are a few examples of travel dresses or clothes that may be included. The clothes chosen should be light and either easy to iron or do not wrinkle quickly. I once packed too light. This resulted in additional expense as I was impelled to purchase what I needed.
Of course bringing too much luggage would be tedious. The length of the business trip would be a good basis for how many clothes to bring along. Most hotels also provide laundry services so checking out how much it would cost would be a good idea especially if the stay would be of some length, say more than a week. These are good business travel tips that should be considered when a lengthy stay is expected.
I once disregarded this and was quite surprised when I looked at how much having laundry done at the hotel cost. At times it might be better to consider having the laundry done outside the hotel. Asking some locals before the trip will can definitely help with this.
A good business hotel to pick will especially during, lengthy business trips, would those that will allow you to pack light because of the presence of affordable laundry services either in-house or close by.
