International Travel Tips
These tips range from the mundane to the unusual, and attempt to encompass the entire scope of your successful travel needs:
- Procure a comprehensive itinerary. For all aspects of your trip to go smoothly, and to ensure the greatest amount of success, a well thought out plan and list of all important dates and times must be created. This is, thankfully, where you can trust our travel team to assist. We specialise in planning, and can help you stay up to date and prepared for all aspects of your venture.
- Understand your destination. From common social customs to current news events, understand where you’re going. Small talk is inevitable, and in many parts of the world is actually part of the business process. You must be capable of holding your own not only in business talk, but in general conversations as well.
- Be ready for local etiquette and customs. How you behave in your home may (and will likely) differ from the general accepted social customs and norms at your destination. Be ready for this in any way you can, and make a genuine effort to fit in well. Your efforts will be appreciated by associates, to be sure. This may include brushing up on common phrases, if the local language differs, or perhaps learning greetings and common gestures.
- Be sure you have cash available. Cards aren’t common everywhere, and at times can be inconvenient. Ensure you have a healthy supply of the local currency upon arrival, and keep well stocked. In the event of an emergency or unanticipated event, you want to be absolutely ready.
- Keep some supplies. With long distance business travel, any number of unexpected problems may arise. It is wise to keep medications of anything you are prescribed in abundance, just in case. Also include painkillers (ibuprofen is best for pain relief), emergency supplies, and some energy bars and water. This way, you’re ready for anything at all that may come your way.
