In today’s hyper-connected world, business trips aren’t just being taken by the suited-up corporate type. The world is opening up to smaller business owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs who have to constantly work on the move.
Luckily, there are plenty of tools that can make your trips easier to plan, more efficient and ultimately more enjoyable.
Booking the Flight
There are plenty of great websites and apps to find the best deals. Cheapflights is great for domestic and international flight. It also lets you check prices for hotels and runs holiday deals.
Also, beware of constantly going back to price checking websites when booking flights. Some websites have been known to slightly increase the price of flights every time you go back onto their site in an attempt to push you toward buying the ticket. One way you can get around this is by clearing your search history and clearing your cookies and cache in your web browser.
