Business Travel Essentials

In this article

Could your business travel packing list use some improvement? We’re here to help with corporate travel planning. The items you bring along can drastically elevate your overall quality of life while you’re on the move, so don’t overlook the importance of packing smart.

Americans Make Over 405 Million Long-Distance Business Trips Per Year

That’s almost 16% of all of the travel done by Americans!
With so many people traveling for business, there has to be a way to make the trip comfortable and satisfying—even if it is for work. So what should you really have in your carry-on and checked bags? Let Telios Travel help you with personalized recommendations to make your traveling experience more enjoyable and stress-free!

Packing Cubes

When you travel for business, it doesn’t mean that all of your travel is strictly business.
You may have your work clothes, but you may also want to put some of the following on your business travel packing list:

  • Workout clothes
  • Outfits for happy hours
  • Comfortable clothes for after-hours relaxing in your room

With so many different types of clothes that you want to pack, you’ll want to use packing cubes to keep your business travel essentials organized (and easier if you want to unpack in an organized way).

Shoe Bags

Odds are you are packing nice shoes for a business trip—that’s business travel essentials 101. But just because you’re wearing nice shoes doesn’t mean that they won’t get dirty while you are out and about. That’s why you should add shoe bags to your business travel packing list.

Bringing shoe bags to put your shoes in will not only help to protect your shoes from getting scuffed up in your bag, but they’ll also protect your clothes and other belongings from dirt and mud that may be on the shoes.

Underseat Carry-On

There are so many carry-on options to choose from. Make sure you have one that can hold all of your immediate business travel essentials while also fitting under the seat in front of you. These can include:

Portable Phone Charger

If you’re constantly on the go for your business travels, you may not have time to sit down and plug in your phone. But that doesn’t mean the calls stop!

To make sure that you’re ready for a call at any time of the day—whether you’re at the airport or driving to your hotel—you should include a portable phone charger on your list of business travel essentials.

You won’t ever have to worry about your phone dying when traveling for business again!

Travel Adaptors

When traveling for business, you may not always stay in the country. If you’re going on an international trip, you have to be prepared. Part of that preparation involves adding travel adaptors for the country you’re visiting to your business travel packing list.

If you don’t have the right adaptor, you won’t be able to charge any of your devices!

  • Make sure your adaptor is right for the country you’re visiting
  • Universal adaptors might be a good choice

Noise-Canceling Headphones

Traveling while listening to meetings or having phone calls isn’t the easiest thing to do. However, with headphones, it doesn’t have to be that difficult.

But even better? Noise-canceling headphones.

They make sure that they drown out the noise around you (like a busy airport) so that you can focus on your call. These may become one of your most-needed business travel essentials.

Portable Monitor

If your work involves frequent computer use, consider adding a portable monitor to your list of business travel essentials. Have you ever tried to work off of Excel while also entering numbers into a computer program and simultaneously trying to stay up to date with your messages from your boss?

With this in mind, opt for these portable options to make your work life easier while traveling:

  • Portable monitor
  • Portable keyboard
  • Portable mouse

Reusable Water Bottle

It’s not always easy to save the world and travel for business all the time. However, you can take small steps to do both! If you use a reusable water bottle, you’ll be reducing your plastic waste everywhere you go.

You can simply fill up your water bottle at the airport, in stores, and at the hotel. Additionally, this way, you’re not constantly looking for water—you always have your bottle with you!

Wrinkle Releaser

If you need to look sharp for your appointments, add a wrinkle releaser to your list of business travel essentials. Business travel attire tends to wrinkle pretty easily—it’s also a nicer material that you want to keep looking nice, even after a long day of travel. Along with the wrinkle releaser, you may want to consider the following:

  • Travel lint remover
  • Travel stain stick
  • Refreshing clothing spritz to smell fresh
