5 Must-have Apps For Business Travellers
Travelling for business is still a must-do for many professions in most industries today. While you may not be travelling to as many meetings as you used to, not all meetings are successful this way due to the prevalence of video call apps.
Meeting your client or prospective customer in person is better for closing deals. Therefore don’t put off that all-important business trip, as you can reduce the stresses of organising your travel, business meetings, and accommodation with the assistance of technology.
Technology Is A Game-changer For Travel
The whole travel process is now a lot more bearable, with these must-have business travel apps, so check out our top picks.
When you’re busy navigating transport and prepping for important business meetings, the last thing you want to be worrying about is keeping track of your expenses. Enter Expensify – it does the job for you.
Simply take a picture of your receipts (no matter what the currency) and the clever little app will automatically submit the expense for approval and reimbursement. As if that weren’t enough, it also has GPs tracking, so you can accurately record your mileage too.
No business trip should be all work and no play, and with GetYourGuide on your phone, you’ll be able to find fun things to do.
This fantastic app shows you the best sightseeing tours and activities in your destination and lets you book tickets for them, including the queue-jump variety – perfect if you’re pushed for spare time.
Plus, you can use it offline to access your mobile ticket, directions to your activity and supplier contact details.
PackPoint is a helpful little app that puts together a personalised packing list for you, by reviewing factors such as the type of trip (business or leisure), the duration, the weather, and even whether you’ll have access to washing facilities.
Also, the app creates a link for your list, which you can share with your colleagues if they’re a little bit bamboozled about what to pack – check out this PackPoint demo video on YouTube to see it in action.
A stressful visit to the airport is the last thing you need at the start of a business trip; however, with Flio installed, you’ll have an expert airport assistant by side.
This awesome app provides instant airport updates, so you’ll be the first to know about delays, gate changes and other essential flight-related info.
In addition, it has airport guides for more than 300 hubs, lets you purchase airport services such as lounge access and helps you log in to the airport’s official wi-fi – what more could you want?
The Waze navigation app gives you info about traffic, roadworks, accidents and other factors that can cause delays, and even adapts your route so you can reach the airport as quickly as possible.
It also links to other apps, so you can enjoy some travel tunes or your favourite business podcast as your cruise to the airport. For example, if you are driving to the airport, you can compare Airport parking deals for East Midlands, Heathrow, and most major UK hubs. Just think of the time and expense saved by knowing the costs associated with parking in advance!
With these five fantastic apps on your phone, you don’t need to leave anything to chance. You can look forward to less stress and more fun on your next business trip. Plus with more time between meetings, you can see the sights and shop for family, friends, and yourself too.
