Top Fifteen Tips For Corporate Travellers

Cars – a dream, a prestige symbol, an obsession….. Whatever you may call it; it does hold a place in everyone’s life. Everybody dreams of owning some model or the othe, but not all dreams are fulfilled. This is where rental companies can play a beautiful role. Not only do they give their services, but can also fulfill people’s dream. One can rent and enjoy their dream car.

Consider the unconventional when interviewing an employee. The more often you can set a scenario that a potential employee will not expect or could find to be an unusual method of interviewing, the better. It will give you a chance to see what that person is really capable of, as a person.

Check different sites. There are so many travel sites available now and it can be overwhelming. By planning early, you can investigate more than one, but remember you don’t have to check every single travel site out there as there is not going to be that much variation. Pick a few that you trust – Expedia, travel management companies or the like. Have a pad of paper by your side and jot down the site you are on and the pricing you found. That way you do not have to try to remember where you saw a flight. Always remember that fares cannot be guaranteed until a ticket is actually booked, a fare you see right now might not be available in an hour. If you find a really great deal, be prepared to book it.

Whatever be your mode of transport, the onus is on you to make sure that you are comfortable. You owe it to yourself and the baby. So if you are flying, make sure that you move around at least once every hour. If you are travelling in a car, take a break every hour, walk around, and stretch yourself. This is extremely important and essential to prevent blood clots. It will also keep you from being sore and stiff.

Get into the boarding line early. I once stood in a boarding line over an hour for a flight, and it was worth it. I was able to board early enough that it did not bother me when boarding got backed up. You know the situation, too many people, too much carry on and not enough storage. This can be very frustrating, but I was already in my seat, sipping water and reading my book. We, as humans, generally do not like to wait in lines but this is one case where getting into line early can alleviate stress.

I received a phone call from a man asking if he could have the honor of booking my next set of travel arrangements for me. During a short interview he asked me where I typically went, how often I traveled, where I liked to sit on airplanes, which airlines I preferred, how much I was typically spending per flight to different locations, what type of accommodations the hotels I stayed in needed to have for me to be happy, what size and type of rental cars I preferred, all about my frequent traveler programs and away he went. I did not think another thing about it.

The way I get through life is that I expect the worst and am always pleasantly surprised when it goes better than I had thought it would. I am not sure this is the best life plan for every scenario, but it works when thinking about travel. Have an attitude that there will be delays and that you will be just fine with it. Think of the delays as “me” time and that will go a long way in helping to de-stress your holiday travel. Hope this helped!! Have a happy and safe holiday!!
