BUSINESS TRAVEL PET PEEVES

Delays

It’s no surprise that this topped the list. It’s the bane of every business traveller existence! It doesn’t matter if it’s a train, plane or bus; this will set you back. If you are unfortunate enough to be delayed make sure you always carry a portable charger and a form of entertainment to make the time pass quicker.   

Hidden costs

We all know the hotel horror stories. Some providers have hidden costs, tucked away in the small print. Being charged for making local calls, internet use, city tax, these extras all add up! Make sure you always read the terms and conditions that companies provide, some things really are too good to be true!

Lack of 21st century living

Can anyone live without Wi-Fi these days? Whether it’s a dodgy connection, an hour limit, or simply a complete lack of it, it’s grinding everyone’s gears! If you’re navigating an unknown city and you know you won’t have Wi-Fi, be sure to pack a map.

Peace & quiet?

Why does it always seems you’re the lucky one parked next to the misbehaving children, rowdy stag do or loud snorer? The noise can make rest, work and relaxation impossible. Make sure you carry ear plugs and headphones to drown out the drivel.
