Learn everything About business travel

With an increase in the number of people travelling frequently on work, websites dedicated to tips and advice on business trips come in handy. At businesstravel.suite101.com, the contributors write not just about what kind of clothes to take but also about the best technologies available for working in the airport or checking stock prices when faced with a long wait. There are specific categories like ‘keeping in touch with the office’ and ‘12 business travel resolutions’.

Cell phone users can look up the various alternative uses for their phones such as currency conversion and making a video journal.

By clicking on ‘leading contributors’, you can look at the best posts that have been uploaded over the past month including those on ideal gifts for professionals on the move, and blunders to avoid during office holiday parties. Subscribe to feeds for free using an existing e-mail account.

At businesstown.com/travel, there are snippets on etiquette during in-flight meetings and tips like taking a moment to give flight attendants a polite farewell before disembarking.

Fun times

They also have ideas on how to make trips fun by choosing to go out and see a play rather than retire to your hotel room at the end of a long meeting.
