Professional business people are expected to undertake business travel as part of their job in increasing numbers and increasingly. The business traveler is on the road at least 70 nights per year (more than one night/ week) both domestically and internationally.

Never before has a resource tool been developed for business travelers. This website is a first and is packed with up to date, essential information for making business travel efficient and enjoyable. I have put together all the experience that 25 years of over 120 nights per year of travel has given me, in one easy to navigate website.

A How To and Hot Tips guide to all aspects of business travel:

  • Getting business travel ready – what infrastructure to set up prior to departing. A travel file to make your assistant’s life easier, a great relationship with a specialist business travel agent, passport, visas, vaccinations, travel insurance, telephone options for international travelers, and much more.

Who will find this website useful?

  • There will be useful tips for anyone who travels on business both domestically and internationally.
  • It is specifically written for people who travel extensively – 80 days or more each year and for those who travel to many international destinations each year. This equates to 3 nights every 2 weeks and many people (like myself) travel much more than that on business.
  • Travel agents and assistants to people who travel on business will also find this book contains useful tips (see the location finder for by city hairdressers, nail salons, shoe repairers, ticketing websites for shows, etc) and useful questions to ask those they are supporting in their travel arrangements
