While many are flying off to exotic islands, quaint beach towns and otherwise escaping for the summer, some of us are planning to travel as a means of business rather than leisure. Having the right business travel products can eliminate a lot of the stress and hassle that business travel requires, leaving you refreshed and prepared for your next meeting, conference or business pitch.
Read on for three business travel must-haves!
Portable Phone Charger
For many, being off-the-grid isn’t an option. Carrying a portable phone/tablet charger is essential for staying on top of emails, texts and other business items while you’re away from your desk. There are many compact USB chargers available. Just make sure to charge it up, prior to leaving for your flight, or be ready to plug in and wait at a mobile charging station at the airport.
Travel Neck Pillow
Frequent flyers know that one of the biggest challenges with business travel is that getting a good night’s sleep can be a challenge. When you travel often for business, you tend to find yourself on red eyes and early morning departures, criss-crossing between different time zones –– sometimes into different countries. An Evolution® travel neck pillow is a must-have business travel product to make sure you arrive rested and ready meet your clients, seal the deal, and hit the road again.
You may rock stilettos or a pair of Oxfords at the office, but the last thing you want in high altitude (or worse, in a crowded terminal) is to be stuck in a pair of uncomfortable shoes. A pair of sneakers or slip-ons is certainly a must-have business travel item for executives on the go.
Avoid a scramble for your passport, phone and other travel items by having a well-organized carry-on bag. Choose one that feels comfortable on your shoulders and has enough compartments for your usual travel paraphernalia.
A high quality sleeping mask is a mandatory business travel product for anyone who flies early and often. When you’re on an airplane, you can’t control whether or not the lights in the cabin will be on, or if your seatmate will have the sun shining brightly through the window. If you really want to get some sleep on your flight, make sure you pair a sleeping mask with your travel pillow.
