Business traveling can be both a pain and an enjoyable experience. To get more of the latter, you’ll need to know how to pack efficiently and narrow down the essential items that you should bring along.

Another way to enjoy your business travels is to leave the driving to us here at Orange County limousine service. Our professional chauffeurs are always up to the task, and you can be assured of a safe and comfortable ride for the duration of your stay.

Now, let’s get back to those essential items for your next trip:


Use Dry Cleaner Bags

Other than the option of rolling up your clothes, you can also place them individually in dry cleaner bags. This prevents the clothing material from rubbing against each other. Of course, if you have a lot of clothes, you’ll need to pick and choose which ones to keep in the cleaner bags. If you have a hot shower available at your place, you can easily hang up the bags in the bathroom and leave them to straighten out from the steam in the bathroom.


Get Your Suits Ready

Unlike the shirts that rest directly on our bodies, suits are definitely hardier and less exposed to sweat. This means that two suits for men and two blazers for women are more than enough for any duration of travel. If you want to save space in your luggage or need to have it on you immediately when you arrive, you can always wear one on the plane itself. This way, you’ll step off the plane, into a car and arrive at your destination ready to go.


Bring Your Backups

You know the important items you need to identify yourself or to pay your way through wherever you are? Well, it’s always good to have at least a backup of each with you at all times. From your passport and driver’s license to your credit card and visa, you should have a high-resolution scan of each one saved on your phone, laptop or memory card. If anything goes missing, you can at least whip this up as an emergency backup solution.


The Useful Tennis Ball

If you’re going on a long-haul flight, you’ll want to be careful of sitting too long in your seat. You still have the option of taking a walk once in a while but that can sometimes be more of a hassle. Get yourself an inexpensive solution: a tennis ball. You can roll it under your feet or place them under your thighs to avoid getting stiff and sore. Because it’s so small and light, it definitely won’t be a burden on your luggage space at all.


Play Down the Colours

There’s nothing wrong with a pop of colour now and then, but you’ll want to tone it down a little when it comes to a more formal setting. To make your packing hassle-free, you should stick with a combination of whites, blacks, greys and dark blues when it comes to your clothes. Not only is it easy to match one another, you can also avoid the possibility of coming up with a terrible colour combination. Of course, for the seasoned dresser, you can afford a little risk when it comes to your clothing choices.
