Business Travel: 3 Ideas on How to Travel On a Budget in 2019


Business travel can be quite exciting, you get to take a break from your normal work environment, get to see new places, and interact with new people; it’s an all-around refreshing experience. However, business travel can also be expensive, especially if you are an entrepreneur. Having been in the travel business for several years now, our New Jersey ground transportation specialists have picked up a few tips along the way on how to travel on a budget on all your business trips this year.
First, we recommend hiring the services of a reliable concierge car service. Most people assume that black car services such as our New Jersey day trips service are automatically much more expensive in comparison to conventional means of transportation, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Our services will only be slightly more expensive than conventional means when you are traveling alone but become significantly cheaper when you are traveling in a group and splitting the cost.
Further, when it comes to business travel, time is money. Our car service has earned a reputation of strict punctuality; our staff and professionally trained chauffeurs consider all logistical factors at play including weather, time of day, traffic density, best routes, etc., to ensure that you arrive at any destination of your choice on, or ahead of time. And that quality of service is invaluable.
The following are a few helpful tips on how to travel on a budget on a business trip in 2019.

Create a Plan

Sometimes, business travel will demand that you travel spontaneously. Unfortunately, spontaneous travel costs you a lot of time and money. However, if this can be avoided, we recommend coming up with a plan well before leaving. You don’t need to account for every minute of your trip but you do need to put into consideration the amount of time you will be spending in each town/city. This will allow you to make the necessary arrangements (e.g. hotels and transportation bookings) in advance, which essentially means less unexpected circumstances and spending will occur during the actual trip.

Baggage Fees

Travel as light as possible on a business trip. One way to do this is to pick out just a few sets of dull-colored, inconspicuous official clothes that you can interchange during the trip. Preferably, bring only carry-on luggage and, in case you need more attire, you can always purchase a few pieces at your destination. This will save you the trouble of having to pay excess baggage fees at the airport.

Avoid City Centers

If the hotel overlooks the Statue of Liberty, chances are it is either going to be tiny, or overpriced. Instead of spending on city center accommodations, we recommend going for hotels located beyond the city limits, where you will be able to quickly travel into the city during the day for your business engagements and later retreat to your quiet, fairly-priced accommodation. Go online before leaving for your trip and look for accommodation options just outside of the city’s confines and you’ll be surprised just how much you can save.
