Tips for Better Business Travel
(NC)-It's no surprise that company cost cutting puts added pressure on business travelers. To help manage budgets in the economic downturn, travellers will need to implement measures that maximize value. Since the use of conferencing tools such as webinars can't always replace face-to-face meetings, Days Inns - Canada offers some essential tips for the frugal, cost-conscious business traveller.
Comfort Counts: With budget cutbacks and travel restraints, your next business trip doesn't have to break the bank. Why not pass on the 4-star hotel and go for a 3-star that will provide clean, comfortable rooms, exceptional service and the essential hotel amenities all at a reasonable price. Keep in mind discount business travel shouldn't mean cutting out necessities. Visit brand-specific websites to find up-to-date photography and room descriptions so you know exactly what to expect.
Better Value for Your Dollar: For the guaranteed best available rate, remember to book online hotel reservations well in advance. Look for low cost national hotel chains that cater to business travelers, such as Days Inn hotels with amenities including free high-speed Internet access, a free Daybreak Café breakfast at most locations and spacious work desk and high-intensity work light. And, be on the lookout for special hotel discounts such as bonus loyalty points and business packages.
Get Rewarded: Check with your hotel to see if they offer a loyalty rewards travel program, such as Wyndham Rewards. Look for a participating partner, such as Days Inn and earn valuable points during your stay that can be redeemed for hundreds of great rewards like gift cards for shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
Stay Connected: It's a good idea to send your business itinerary to a coworker, friend or relative so someone will always know your whereabouts. Be sure to carry a cell phone when traveling alone, and of course sending an e-mail from the road to keep people informed is a good idea.
Less Is More: Be sure to pack light and right - the less you pack, the less you have to carry. A checklist with different categories will help you get organized and ensure you fill your suitcase with the necessities. Traveling with light luggage will ease your trip and increase overall comfort level while on the road.
