6 Must Have Items For Business Trips
- By: Rick Valence
There are many factors involved in a business trip planning; getting proper rest before you go, transporting and protecting your things, keeping in contact with your office, just to name a few. Getting prepared isn't always easy when you have all of that on your plate. On top of all that you have to make your business trip as productive and cost effective as possible. There are many items needed for business trips, but here are six that you must have to be able to do business properly.
Not just all of your personal prescription medications, which are obviously vital to pack, you will also need to compile a small first-aid kit and keep it with you at all times. They are a very common item and can be picked up at any drug store. This is especially true when visiting a foreign country where you do not speak the language. This way if you have a minor medical need, you will have everything to take care of it yourself.
2) Inflatable Travel Pillow
Let's face it, carrying around an actual pillow is cumbersome at best. Your best option for portability is using a lightweight travel pillow that inflates. Regardless of your mode of transportation, plane, train, or automobile, it will come in handy. Even if you are driving a car, you will be thankful you brought one. This is especially true if you need to pull over for a little catnap.
3) Plug Adapter
If your business trip is taking you to another country, you will have to have an electric plug adapter to be able to use any of your handy electronic gadgets. Without one you will look like a fool and probably not be able to even conduct much business due to the dependence most businesses have on technology.
4) Voltage Converter
You need a voltage converter for much of the same reasons you need a plug adapter. Voltage rates vary from country to country. So, having one device that lets you use electricity from them all will be very important. Currently there are many electronics, but not all, that allow for a range of voltages. Be very certain, otherwise you may permanently fry your devices.
5) Surge Protector
While we may have built in wiring in our homes to protect against power surges, this is not true everywhere. You need to be sure your electronics are protected from being damaged from an electrical surge.
6) Noise-canceling Headphones
These are an absolute must for those who need to rest or get work done in a noisy environment. Just be careful to reserve their use in relatively safe situations because they block all noise and you will not be able to hear if there is any danger.
Careful planning can ensure that your business trips go as smoothly as possible. With these six items that should not be a problem on your next business trip.
