Traveling for business can feel like a double-edged sword. On the one side, it may offer you an opportunity to elevate your skills, relationships, and even sales depending on the nature of your trip. On the flip side, though, planning your trip can be a hassle. In addition, you may be worried about your health and safety if you’ll be traveling during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, Brian Ferdinand, the managing partner of SoBeNY, recently shared in an article some tips for elevating the quality of your trip from start to finish.
Select Corporate Housing, Instead Of a Hotel
In the recent article, business and travel expert Brian Ferdinand explains that staying in a corporate housing unit versus a hotel will immediately improve the quality of any business traveler’s excursion. That’s because corporate housing units are created with space, luxury, and comfort in mind.
When you decide to book a corporate housing unit, you can expect to walk into a fully furnished luxury apartment featuring plenty of space to house your clothes and other belongings. You’ll also find a full-sized kitchen, where you can easily prepare your favorite meals in your downtime, rather than having to constantly eat fast-food burgers and fries for lunch and dinner.
In addition, in first-rate corporate housing units, you’ll find high-speed internet that is secure, as only you will be able to access it. This is a much different scenario than what you’d find in a hotel, where everybody accesses the same hotel hotspot.
Furthermore, your corporate housing unit may come with a state-of-the-art entertainment center as well as other amenities you might not have had the opportunity to enjoy back at your home.
Extra Tips For Making Traveling Safer and Easier
Along with going the corporate housing route, be sure to also bring items with you on your trip that will help you to work efficiently. For instance, let’s say that you enjoy taking notes with a certain pen. Make sure that you bring several of these pens with you. Also, if you think you’ll need an ergonomic keyboard, carve out space in your bags to bring one with you.
Also, during your travels, try to use touchless kiosks and electronic keys whenever possible, as this will decrease your chances of contracting the coronavirus. Likewise, try to choose an airline that mandates keeping middle seats open to decrease exposure to the virus, according to Brian Ferdinand.
