Duty of Care

Female Business Traveller At Check In Kiosk

To an extent, all travel has risks associated. Generally any issues that arise during personal travel are the responsibility of the traveler. But because of its very nature, issues that arise during business travel are the responsibility of the traveler’s employer. With recent worldwide events, it’s more important than ever that companies have a strong Duty of Care program in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its traveling employees.

We spoke with business travel expert Road Warriorette to get more information.

Packing Light to Avoid Baggage Fees

You will be hard pressed to find a veteran business traveler who regularly checks their bag. They know checking their suitcase costs money, takes additional time on both ends of the trip, and increases the risk for lost or mishandled baggage. New business travelers don’t despair! Here are ways to pack efficiently and make carrying on a breeze.

Business Traveller Pulling Suitcase 2

Utilize a capsule wardrobe concept.

In capsule wardrobes each clothing item can be worn with everything else. Don’t pack separate outfits for each day; plan to re-wear slacks with a different shirt or blouse, for example.

Use packing cubes

Packing cubes will compress a large amount of clothing into a very small amount of space, allowing use of a smaller suitcase.

Only bring three pairs of shoes.

Shoes take up more space than any other item. Bring three pairs total, including the pair worn on travel days.

Decant toiletries.

For the average business trip there is no need to bring full-sized toiletries. Use small bottles or spare contact lens cases to store liquids.

Using these tips will help inexperienced business travelers pack like a pro and avoid checking their suitcase, saving money, time, and inconvenience.



The Best Mobile Cases for Flying




Moonmini for iPhone 7

We have seen an increasing trend of business travellers taking short trips with only their phone – leaving their laptops at home.  With several high-profile phones being released this year, many are in the market for a new phone case so we looked at 2 brands that help you get the most of out of your device.

Morpie is a well-established brand of phone cases.  Their specialization is device power – they have cases with extra batteries built in. While it makes the case thicker and heavier, the advantage of add hours of usage while on the road can be invaluable.

Moonmini is a newer company that doesn’t have the reputation of Morphie, but has gained attention with innovative designs.  Our favorite are a series of cases with a built-in kickstand for easy handsfree viewing in both portrait and landscape modes.

For many, a phone case is an opportunity for personal expression but we like these two product lines that help you get more done with your device.
