The 2018 Corporate Travel Index published by the Business Travel News says companies spend on average over $1,400 for a three-day business trip.  However, even with the advancements of technology, this traditional method of face to face client interaction is still critical.

To help make the most of your next business trip, here are some suggestions from some of our most frequent travels who utilize Kevin Smith Transportation Group.

See the Sights When You Can

While abroad for work, you shouldn’t lose the opportunity to get to know the city, its main attractions and hidden gems. A very fun and affordable way to do it is by taking a tour based on local tips. In a few hours, you’ll have a good overview of the city and you can give what you want after the tour, according to your budget and experience.

Most tours can be booked the day before, for free, which makes it the perfect option if you have a meeting canceled. As said, it’s also a very fun experience, as tour guides are doing their best to get more tips. Ideal for unwinding after a busy day.

Manage Your Expenses with a Web-Based Tool

One aspect of business travel that we’ve all just learned to live with is managing spending. You pay for food and other expenses, save your receipts, usually in a messy pile, then fill in a painful expense report at some time in the six months after your trip, when you’ve forgotten what all that spending was for.

If you used a company card, you have to hope you made no mistakes. If you used your own money, you’re hoping the company reimburses every expense.

One way to avoid this dance is to use an expense management tool. Many of them allow you to take a quick photo of each receipt, and then the app creates your expense report for you. This saves the traveler time, but also helps your finance team keep track of everything. And no lost receipts!

Bring Enough Business Cards When You Travel

It’s important to always put your best foot forward when attending meetings, especially overseas. But your business attire isn’t complete without well-made business cards on hand. Leave a memorable first impression by making sure your business cards are professionally printed.

A professional printer can offer you many choices as a small business with affordable price and great turnaround time. And if you still haven’t finalized your business cards design, you can easily choose from over 10,000 templates or get help from a professional designer.
