Tips for summer business travel
July 7, 2011
When the kids are out of school and the weather is nice, many families take vacations, which can put a damper on the travel plans of businessmen and women. Families with children can often hold up lines at security checkpoints, so CNN recommends that business travelers avoid lines with children to save time and stress.
Once aboard the plane, the last thing you want is to be seated in front of a noisy youngster, especially if their legs are within kicking distance of your seat. You can opt to sit in the back row or upgrade to business or first class, where the likelihood of children is lower and you can prepare for your meeting. If you really need to vent once your plane lands, you can use a long-distance phone card to call home and air your frustrations with traveling.
To help ease some of the other stresses of traveling for business, you can try to book direct flights or fly during the morning, when there are less people in the airport. MSN reports that earlier flights are also less likely to be delayed or cancelled.
