How to Get the Best Out of Business Air Travel

Being shut up in metal box for an extended period is never going to be without stress. It however, is possible to make it relatively pain free if you either throw money at the problem or know how to travel smart. This short post gives you ideas about how to fly as smart as possible and where you should consider investing.


Airlines are on tight margins too. This means they respect and encourage loyalty. If you can find and pick one airline and work towards elite status you will be handsomely rewarded. Similarly, you will receive considerable perks even at a lower level of points that will make your life easier. This includes priority boarding and express security lines. Also, the people most likely to score upgrades are the most loyal.

Credit card

An airline credit card can offer travelers some real benefits and the threshold where that you must cross to justify their use is often low. The large airlines all have branded cards for $100-150 that offer many perks. Some let you check your bags for free; therefore, you get your cash back after just a couple of flights. You may also find early boarding and discounts on selected items.

Day pass

Executive lounges are about the most comfortable place you can get in an airport. They can be expensive to join but offer many benefits. In one, you can definitely work and relax. You’ll get as much to drink (sometimes but not always alcoholic drinks) and snack on as you want. And most importantly, the Wi-Fi will be fast and the coverage will be full. Day passes are around $50.
