Must Have Gadgets For Business Travel

If your definition of glamorous is being stuck inside a four-walled confine in endless meetings, sporting the same outfit four days in a row, and sore-jaw syndrome from smiling all through client dinners when all you really want is to do is soothe your jet-lag with a warm bath, all the while not seeing any of the country you’re traveling to – then yes, business travel IS glamorous. That may have seemed a tad bitter. All-in-all, traveling for business isn’t that bad. It’s actually pretty cool. As someone who frequently lives out of a suitcase, it’s safe to say that I’m finally getting the hang of it. A few things are standard: business travel management companies are still relevant – check out this URL for their benefits, avoid checking your bags unless you absolutely have to, sign up for pre-check in processes, and always have the correct gadgets. Tech gadgets are essentially the key to saving your sanity during a corporate trip, so if you’re new to the world of business travel, or in need of a serious upgrade, here are the top gadgets to add in your carry-on luggage.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

Think life is like a box of chocolates? Well, flights are that box of chocolates. Unless you’re lucky enough to be flying business class, you really don’t know what you’re going to get. Screaming or sick babies are at the top of the list (poor things) followed by the first time flier in row 37F, finished with the one person who answers their phone upon descent, ensuing a ridiculous amount of passenger chaos – yes this happened. If you’re on a long haul flight, a good quality set of noise-cancelling headphone will make you oblivious to your surrounds, allowing you to tune out to the soft sounds of your own music or entertainment.

Battery Extenders

I want to you to take a look at your smartphone, tablet, laptop or whatever technology is at your disposal. How much battery life do you have left? Chances are, if it’s after lunch, it would be below half. Not so surprisingly, all that tapping, swiping and cat videos put a huge dent in your battery life, so if you need to be productive during all that down time, it would be a wise investment to purchase a back-up battery.

Personal Wi-Fi

Standard hotels and airports are famous for providing limited or costly internet for users, with rates generally levelling extortionist prices the more fancy the establishment. Four days of hotel Wi-Fi use can send the financial department into a heart-palpitating spin, so you might be better off bringing your own internet. If you’re travelling interstate, grab a Wi-Fi USB that you can use on-the-go as long as there’s cell service. To put things in perspective, one day of hotel internet usage is the same cost as one month of personal internet.

Business and Travel Ready Tablet

Tablets are the all-mighty versatile technological device. Whether you’re drafting up offline emails during your flight, watching a movie, listening to music, using a multitude of business apps, or finalising your power point presentation, the tablet is the one gadget every business traveller can’t live without.
