Tips for the Business Traveler
Gene Marks, owner of the Marks Group, a Pennsylvania consulting firm that helps clients with customer relationship management, offers these tips on business travel:
1. When all other things are approximately equal, take the nonstop flight.
2. There are virtually hotels for any need and any budget. Go with the hotel type that fits you best.
3. Rent the smallest car that you think is safe for you to drive in unfamiliar territory.
4. Use a travel agent for longer and more complicated trips.
5. Don’t be a prisoner of your airline’s frequent flyer program. Book the airline that offers the best combination of price and service.
6. If possible, schedule your trip so you can take the first flight out in the morning and take the red-eye flight home. This eliminates the need for a hotel.
7. Don’t buy travel insurance for a business trip. Most airline tickets are flexible and you likely haven’t paid for the hotel or car beforehand. Business trips tend to cancel for reasons that aren’t covered by most travel insurance policies.
8. If you are sending employees to a conference, it’s ok to ask them to double up in a hotel room.
