Travelling for business can be stressful, but in our global economy it’s becoming increasingly necessary.
However, there are some great gadgets out there that can help make business trips more blissful.
For those of you flying from Newcastle to elsewhere in New South Wales or further afield, here are five terrific tech items you need to pack.
- Power bank
Business travel often involves working on the move, so there’s nothing worse than your battery dying on your phone or laptop when you’ve got important documents that you need to access.
So pack a power bank that you can use to keep your electrical devices powered. This way, you’ll be able to use them whenever necessary and it’s the perfect excuse to head outside and enjoy your new surroundings while you work.
- Portable Wi-Fi router
While it’s great to be able to charge your electronics outdoors, it’s even better if you can stay connected to the internet on the move too.
So investing in a portable wi-fi router is therefore a great idea – it’s a back-up in case of unreliable hotel wi-fi and allows you to work from wherever you want, which means you can go out and see your exciting new city rather than being cooped up in your hotel.
A good pair of noise cancelling headphones are a must during business travel. They’ll enable you to block out screaming children, airport crowds and other distractions, so that you can focus on business prep.
With a nice pair of headphones, you’ll be able to listen to your favourite groups or some relaxation music, both of which will help you get into right headspace for good business.
Techradar has some savvy advice on the best noise-cancelling headphones for 2019 – check it out.
The portability and functionality of a tablet make it an ideal travel item, especially on the plane where space is limited.
It enables you to save your business reports and other important documents and access them while you travel to ensure you’re up to speed when you arrive.
A tablet is a great entertainment device too, so when you need a break for work, you can use it to play games, watch films and listen to music.
- Mini projector
With a mini projector to hand, you’ll be able to practice for your business meeting or presentation from the comfort of your hotel room. And when you’re done, you can use it to watch a film and get yourself relaxed and ready for your business dealings.
With all that wonderful travel tech packed in your luggage, the last thing you want is to risk it getting damaged on cramped and crowded public transport, so drive to the airport instead.
You can find Newcastle Airport parking on Looking4.com, then cruise to the airport worry-free, fully focused on business.
