I was recently asked “What new tips do you have that I can use on my upcoming trip?”. I thought to myself “Wow, where do I start?!”, so I figured it was time to write ‘some’ new ones down. I’ve been doing some traveling lately, for business and for pleasure and have realized that for the most part you have the same mentality when you travel for either one. Whether it be to a tropical destination, a flight to Europe, a U.S. city for a night on business or a conference in another country. You want things to go as smoothly as possible, you want efficient service, and you want to enjoy the experience. Here are 8 tips to help you out on your next trip:

1. Before you go, do your research or have someone do it for you. Make sure the hotel or resort you’re staying at is all that you expect it to be. Have a travel professional you trust give you true insight on all the hotel and location has to offer.

2. You want to make the best of the time you have at your location, so have some restaurants in mind before you go. You shouldn’t spend the time you have their looking up restaurants and bars. Have a few written down and choose which fits best on that particular day/night.

3. If you’re traveling alone or you’re not picky don’t pay to pick your seats. By pass that step and have the airline pick them for you for free. When you cheek in at the airport you’ll see what seat you were given. If you prefer a window wait to get to your gate and ask if there are any window seats available.

4. Make a list before you go! You don’t want to get to your hotel to realize you left your laptop or phone charger at home. Check it off before you walk out the door to save you time and money.

5. No matter where you’re flying to, a must these days are noise canceling head phones. It’s so nice to just relax on a flight, focus on your work or enjoy that movie without any distractions. You can get them anywhere these days. They range from $30-$300. Beats by Dre are my favorite and they come in fun colors.

6. Ladies bring a small cosmetics bag (with face wash, tooth-brush, toothpaste and some minimal makeup) on board to freshen up when you land. Especially, if you’re on a flight over seas. You may have another leg on a train or in a car and you’ll want to feel fresh to keep on going.

7. Have some extra zip lock bags with you in your luggage. They will come in hand for that wet bathing suit on your last day or for any 3oz bottles you may want to carry-on with you on your way home.

8. If you travel often there’s nothing like speeding through the TSA line or bypassing the customs line. Sign up for CLEAR, TSA Pre, and Global Entry. You’ll thank me later!
