When traveling for business, time, space and weight are essential. We know that you would like to bring the entire office and many outfits in your carry on, this is not realistic. We have created a list with top tips for packing light when traveling for business, so you can avoid expensive luggage fees without missing the essentials.
Pick carefully your outfits
Even though it seems simple, this is the most effective way to save both luggage space and weight when you travel. In order to avoid the last-minute panic of over-packing, take all the time you need to do your research and pack very carefully. Find out what the weather will be, the activities you’ll be doing or the events you’ll attend. Carefully planning your outfits means you can pick out only what you need during your trip and nothing more.
Don’t pack unnecessary stuff
Of course, it would be wonderful to bring with your laptop and other devices on your next trip but try as much as possible to think about what is really necessary and what you will use. Download the files and documents you need or bring a USB stick or an external hard disk you can use anywhere. If you need to scan files or send documents during your trip, there are many apps available that use your mobile device camera and then convert the documents into to a PDF or JPEG file.
Bring a portable reading device
When traveling, it’s always recommended to read – it helps you relax, and times flies faster when you discover a new world presented by your book. Rather than carrying around a hardcover book, it might be better to choose a portable reading device such as a Kindle, Nook or a tablet that you can use during your travels. This way, you will store all the books you’ve always wanted to read, and you’ll have plenty of options so you can choose a book that will suit your mood when your travel. How convenient!
Use the amenities in your hotel room
Nowadays, many hotels offer business amenities, including a computer area and printing facilities that you can use during your business trip. Of course, when we say amenities, we also mean toiletries. You will find out what complimentary toiletries are provided by the hotel, so you can bring the minimum required. Bear in mind that many hotels offer toiletries that aren’t put out in your room, but they are available free of charge upon request.
