Business traveling is an art! Like any other craft, learning the art of traveling will end up saving you time, money, and a lot of unnecessary hassle. To help you hone your skill as a business traveler, our Westchester limo service specialists have put together a list of some of the most common mistakes that end up costing business travelers and how you can avoid making the same mistakes. Whether it’s your first business trip or your 100th, we all make mistakes, but the important thing is that we learn from them, so read on and learn.

Filing Expense Reports at the Last Minute

Many people don’t realize this, but waiting until the last minute to file an expense report is a disaster waiting to happen. You could lose travel and meal receipts and end up footing a hefty bill out of your own pocket. Cash only expenses are hard to verify without the accompanying receipts, therefore, to make things a lot easier for yourself, and to avoid incurring unnecessary losses, download mobile apps like Lemon or Expensify that allow you to take images of receipts along the way, and when you are finally back from your trip it will only take you a few minutes to tabulate the expenses and create a shareable spreadsheet with the accompanying receipts attached.

Overlooking Reviews

Overlooking reviews is tantamount to setting false expectations. Take the time to go through the user reviews of your potential hotel/car service/airline website before booking or making any reservations. User reviews give you the most accurate depiction of what to expect on the ground, and reading about the experiences of your predecessors will give you accurate information to base your decision on. It will also save you the disappointment of having to deal with substandard services once you have arrived at your destination.

Over Packing

When you’re traveling, it is easy to assume that you will need a different outfit for every single occasion, but this also means that you will have to haul around heavy luggage on your trip and pay high baggage fees for exceeding weight limits. We recommend that you pack your bag the same way you normally would, then remove half of the items; you can always do some laundry on your trip. Also, leave behind toiletries, these items can be purchased cheaply just about anywhere, so you don’t need to carry them with you from home. Pack light, your trip will be less hectic, and you will be able to move around more easily.

Also, every business traveler needs a reliable car service and we recommend that you employ the services of our Westchester limousine service for fast, safe, and dependable ground transportation. With our professionally trained chauffeurs behind the wheel, you will be able to check your email, prepare for that meeting or presentation, catch up on some sleep, and even make confidential calls in the comfort of our luxurious vehicles.

Finding dependable ground transportation for your next business trip can be difficult unless you make travel reservations with Harrison Car Service. With Harrison Car Service, you’re guaranteed to receive luxurious ground transportation any time you need it.
