If you are sent on a business trip to Tel Aviv, be sure – you are the lucky one! Even if you are up to your neck in your work in the mornings, most likely you will have all the evenings for the major Israel city at your disposal. This business trip may remain your cherished memory. No doubts that “the city that never sleeps” with its rich history and marvellous architecture prepares something special to surprise you.
We want you to make sure you mention all the details to avoid for a stress-free time! Here we have some basic step-by-step instructions to follow when you are just planning the trip.
Do not forget about the travel arrangements
First of all, you need to ask your manager about the company’s travel expense reimbursement policy. Each company has different rules and policies in place for business trips. Don’t book anything before you are sure that you will be able to use a corporate credit card for your expenses or that the company will provide you with the reimbursement. When you clarify the situation, you need to decide which city you will be travelling from. You can go through different booking websites in order to compare and keep an eye on some transport links. Back in July 2008 the representatives of Business Traveller magazine evaluated London City Airport and considered it to have the best airport connectivity. What about booking flights to Tel Aviv from London and killing two birds with one stone? Sometimes planning a cross-country flight may be a daunting task. However, if you familiarise yourself with the airport in advance and book a taxi to get to one in time, everything will go off without a hitch.
Take your documents with you wherever you go
Secondly, do not forget to check if your passport and visa (if one is required) are still valid. It does not take two or three weeks to get the documents. Make sure to apply for the required one at least two or three months in advance. No joy in being deported. Moreover, make sure that all the required documents are in one place. No passport – no flight!
Take care of your carry-on items’ list
Thirdly, start working on your packing list in advance. Your laptop, electronic charges and all your work things such as contracts or some reports must be above all. However, you shouldn’t forget about your personal items such as clothing, cosmetics, and even some medicaments. It would be also a great idea if you buy some tiny travel-sized bottles of the shower gel, tooth paste and other toiletries you’ll absolutely need. Speaking of your outfits, do not take the clothes that easily get wrinkled. There’s nothing more embarrassing than showing up to work or a meeting in a wrinkled shirt or dress.
