When you have a business trip planned on the calendar, why do you want to wait till the eleventh hour to get the booking done and pay a premium, which could have been avoided.
5. Go paperless:
When everything you want is just a click away, why do you want to pile up the clutter of receipts and other documents unnecessarily. Use apps and just go tension free.
Apart from this, you can expedite the process at airports by using an automatic kiosk for passport processing and getting boarding passes for national air travels. Being quick and prompt is what a business traveler demands and by following these tips, you can kick-start your business trip in an organized way.
