If you’re making your business arrangements the smart way, you might be looking at next year’s calendar and assessing what will come up in your life after the holidays. January ends up being a busy business travel time for many of us, as several large industry conferences are scheduled in major cities across the country. One need only look at the major advertising and technology conferences coming up in Las Vegas next month alone!
If you travel for business, you may already be looking at next year’s transportation budget and wondering how you’re going to make it all work. For many business travelers, time is even a more crucial factor than budget. Despite rough economic times, getting from here to there is a challenge for many successful business owners also trying to manage family and personal lives.
Here are some travel tips for 2012’s busy professionals who don’t have a lot of time on their hands – but know where they want to be!
Have Your Assistant Handle the Small Stuff
We know this is a little harder than it sounds – but when it comes down to it, you have to relinquish control somewhere. Try to enjoy those few layover hours in the airport rather than running around frantically with a cellphone in your hand.
If your assistant can help you set up your travel from Point A to Point B – or even arrange a car for you so you don’t have to catch a taxi – you may want to take him or her up on those precious few moments of time and frustration you’ll be saving.
Book in Advance
Spring flights fill up fast – the weather’s nice, and everyone wants out of the house. If you’re planning on flying commercially, you might want to hit the booking sites as early as January. Even first class could end up full on some of these spring flights as travelers are looking to upgrade from increasingly uncomfortable commercial travel situations.
Fly with Kavoo
Since you’re considering your spring budget already, why not take a look at Kavoo? Particularly if you’re in a time crunch, Kavoo specialists can help your assistant book you on a completely customized, luxury flight experience. Even one Kavoo trip from, say Virginia to Montreal – could save you an entire day’s worth of layover hours.
Plus the air taxi experience is not to be rivaled by for-hire charter plane services, who don’t get that you deserve a little break and a little drink while you get from Point A to Point B.
After the mayhem of holiday travel, you may not want to start thinking about 2012 – but it’s just around the corner! Use the above time saving tips to improve your business travel experience in 2012.
