Ultimate Tips for Business Travellers on first International Tour
by Deepa Gupta Content Marketing
You are thrilled that you’ve just been chosen for your first
international trip by your office. At the same time, you are worried if you can
make a good impression on partners abroad or if you have it all planned
perfectly. You could get in touch with your business travel
agency for help. If your office has hired a travel management
company (TMC), your business
travel support is taken care of. Everything from the passport validity
to your visa and itinerary can be handled by the business travel management
Most TMCs have a clearly chalked out business travel planner template to handle
itineraries, accommodation, ground transport, out-of-office messages etc. These
planners are usually apps or mobile-based software platforms designed for your
travel needs. Read on for some key tips that any business travel agency is
likely to suggest to you:
- Ensure that your passport has enough
validity (usually a minimum of six months from time of scheduled return
date). For visa
arrangements, you could seek the help of your travel agency. Carry
copies of visa and passport with you.
- It’s important to get travel insurance, and here again, you
could seek the help of your TMC. They will give you a couple of options to
choose from, in terms of what gets covered and what doesn’t.
- If you make use of a business travel management
system or software, you can get options on bookings, complete
self-bookings and get travel alerts and notifications.
- Get adequate foreign exchange
but don’t carry too much cash. You can opt for prepaid travel cards or
credit cards specifically for international travel.
- How about carrying a spare set of clothes
in your hand baggage/carry-on? International travel is sometimes about
missed or delayed baggage, so you have spares till then.
