Business travelers must pack wisely

5/29/2015 1:49:05 PM

A smart business traveler knows that every inch of luggage is important. If you are working out of your car rental for a period of time, you don't want to be dragging around a lot of unnecessary stuff. Packing intelligently is a way to avoid common mistakes that doom inexperienced travelers.

This should go without saying, but only pack what you really need. Extra pairs of shoes or large toiletries bags use up lots of space. Talk to employees at the corporate car rental to find out the places nearby to pick up the extra things you may have been unable to pack, or bring disposable items you can eventually throw away to save space.

The same goes with electronic equipment. Test out products at home to avoid bringing extra batteries or unnecessary chargers. It is easy to find out beforehand if a hotel you are staying has equipment such as a hair dryer, which will help you avoid packing those things.

Finally, according to Business Insider, wear black. The color goes with basically anything. Bringing one nice pair of black pants or black shoes can save luggage space for other items.
