Traveling for business? If you’re going to be on the road and in and out of airports for a while, you’ll want to know how to be more efficient and avoid unnecessary hassles with our time-saving tips.


Check Your Colors

There are a few essential colors you’ll need to have in your luggage when it comes to traveling for business. For one, black is definitely the best choice. It can suit any season and any occasion. If you’re looking to match a bright pink shirt, pastel blue necktie or any other colored article of clothing, you really can’t go wrong with this versatile color. All you’ll need are two pairs of black, grey or dark blue suits and you’re good to go.


Save Your Back

The traditional types of luggage are either duffel-bag shaped or a one-way roller. Although they do serve the purpose of carrying your essential items, you’ll need to take into consideration the amount of weight you’ll be lugging around. To save yourself from shoulder and back strains, you should consider investing in a spinner luggage. This will enable you to choose between pulling and pushing your luggage and to do so with very little effort.


Have an ‘Essentials’ Bag Ready

Traveling most of the time? Sometimes it seems that the minute we get back home, we’re on the way to the airport again. If this is the case, you’ll definitely need a go-bag. This usually comprises of TSA-friendly 3.4-ounce bottles of toiletries. It can also mean a set of charging cables and chargers specifically for when you travel. Anything that can be left in the bag for the next trip will significantly cut down on your packing time.


Bring Along a Power Strip

Use a lot of electronics? Well, so do a lot of people these days. Unless there’s a coffee shop handy or a spot with a lot of power outlets, you might be lacking a spot to charge your items. With a power strip in hand, you can make new friends at the airport (everyone wants to charge something these days) and you can also have enough charging outlets in your hotel room.


Use a Digital Luggage Scale

Rather than place your luggage on a weighing scale, you can definitely invest in a digital scale. It’s lightweight and inexpensive, and it does a much better job of weighing your bags than an actual weighing scale. Since it’s based on the actual weight of the bag (as it hangs down from the scale), it’s a lot more accurate than trying to balance it on the two-foot pads of the weighing scale.

Another handy tip to remember is to have a car ready and waiting for you at the airport. This way, you won’t have to wait around for suitable transport to come around. Our New York limousine service is up to the task when it comes to chauffeuring you to any location within New York.
