5 Ways to Travel Smart – How to Stay Ahead When on the Move2 min read

Posted on: 15th Jan 2015

Niall Flanagan, Managing Director of Club Inc., has worked and travelled throughout the world so he knows a thing or two about travelling as efficiently as possible.  Here he details some of the tricks he’s learnt to ensure he stays ahead when on the move…

 

1. Always try and get an early flight

This gives you more time for meetings during the day so you can arrive somewhere and get straight down to business.  It might mean waking up earlier but can be worth it if you get everything completed in a day – you could even fly back that evening so you’re not away from your own bed too long. You can review and plan where needed if you make regular flights and it’s worth experimenting to get the most efficient timings and costs.

 

2. Organise your travel documents

There’s nothing worse than not being able to find your passport when you get to an airport, so it’s always worth keeping copies of your boarding cards, ticket receipts, or your passport in a pack in your luggage.

 

3. Keep a check on your home time

I always keep one clock set to my home time zone so I can keep up with what’s going on back at the office, and ensure I don’t call at unearthly hours of the day too!

 

4. Stay hydrated!

This is so important to ensure you stay alert and have full concentration in every meeting.  Nowadays you can’t get water through security so once through Passport control head straight to a vendor and get a water for the flight or journey (which should hopefully be cheaper than buying it on a plane as well!).

 

5.     Adapt and survive

Travel with the correct travel adaptors – You can’t always purchase the right ones when you’re abroad so this is really important to make sure you can keep yourself powered up!  Maybe even invest in a new portable emergency USB and device charger and keep it in your bag at all times.
