The Art of Business Travel
By Ashley Collins and Erika Osmundson,

Business travel may seem glamorous to someone that doesn’t do a lot of traveling. However business travel can be darn right stressful if you are new to it. Below are common areas of business travel with pitfalls and tips.


Transportation is probably the biggest headache of business travel! Do you drive or fly? Take a direct flight or a cheaper multiple connection flight? Drive your own car or get a rental?

The key to easing this headache is to plan ahead. Not only does planning ahead typically mean more reasonable rates on flights, rentals, etc., it gives you the opportunity to weigh your options and seek input and approval from your supervisor if necessary.

To drive or rent often comes down to personal preference. If your company does not have a preference and you are willing to put the extra miles on your car, run the numbers quick. Figure the mileage reimbursement versus the cost of the rental -- don’t forget to add in a fuel charge. The same can be used for the drive or fly debate, but don’t forget to factor in your time!

The direct versus connecting flight debate gets a little trickier. There can be hefty differences in price between a direct flight and those with a connection or two. As you evaluate your options, remember that a couple hundred dollars difference isn’t much in the grand scheme of things.
