Business travel may seem glamorous at first but in reality it can become quite stressful. You are constantly living out of your suitcase and anything can happen during your travels. Here are a few items you’ll be grateful to have in your carry-on to make the trip as comfortable as possible.
-Only pack the essential personal care items. You don’t need to fill up your carry-on with all your toiletries. Most hotels will provide the essentials that will help you save that extra weight and space. Also bring a small toothbrush and facial wipes for the flight.
-A filtration water bottle. Save money and reduce waste by bringing your own water bottle that has its own filtration system.
-A small kit for medicine and first-aid. You don’t want to be spending money on a bottle of aspirin at the airport when you need it. Pack it in your carry-on along with a mini first-aid kit for any mini emergencies.
-A spare change of clothes. You never know if your flight is going to be delayed or if the weather will ruin your outfit. Bring a spare change of clothes because you may just need to go straight to a meeting when you land.
-Snacks on the go. Keep your energy up by having snacks in your carry-on. Think granola bars, trail mix, and sandwiches.
-Cell phone and laptop charger. If you’re going to keep busy on your phone and laptop at the airport, it’s always nice to have a charger on hand. It can be really frustrating if you don’t have your charger and you have to go out and find the right one.
