Three things every business traveller needs

While you may not be travelling right now, a quieter flying period can be just the ticket to get ahead on organisation and planning.

Make sure you’re ready to go at the drop of a hat with these three things every business traveller needs.

We all know the rules, yet we often see hoards of crowds emptying their liquids into the airport-provided bags at security.

It’s easy enough to remember – in terms of liquids, your hand luggage can only contain one clear bag (20cm x 20cm) with liquids of 100ml or less (and no more than 1l in total).

Be prepared to jet off and make your security walk through* more stylish and sustainable with a leather travel bag from John Lewis featuring clear panels and three side zip for easy access.

Alternatively, this Space NK design is available in five colour options and is easy to wipe clean, plus the panels are faux leather and suede, making it a vegan friendly option.

This Procase option is marked as being carry-on approved by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) in the USA and features clear panels and a heavy-duty zip, ideal for long term use – and you can get the larger sizes for added organisation in your suitcase.

Keep your travel toiletry bag or hand luggage essentials topped up with your go-to products to make packing for trips even more efficient.

Power up

Staying connected with a portable charger isn’t a ground-breaking concept, but with extra powerful and super slim designs constantly appearing on the market, we couldn’t help but share.

The Elecjet PowerPie can be fully recharged in 2.5hours and swiftly power up phones, tablets and laptops – even at the same time with its dual USB capabilities. Compatible with most mainstream brands and products, the PowerPie can provide between 50% – 70% charge to most phones in just 30 minutes, meaning you can keep on top of emails, webinars and documents while on the move.

Alternatively, take a look at the Moshi IonSlim 10K which offers dual charging, protection against overheating or short circuiting and a superbly thin design at just 12.88mm. Available in stylish aluminium, this handy companion can recharge up to 50% in just 45 minutes and provide power to phones, tablets and laptops wherever you are in the world.

Stay hydrated  

It’s important to stay hydrated to help keep you alert (and avoid jet lag!) – especially if you’re straight into a meeting upon landing.

Make a sustainable choice with a reusable water bottle, just remember to empty it before you head through security at the airport. Take a look at Corkcicle’s collection of canteens, including this stylish colour block bottle which keeps cold drinks cool for 25 hours and hot drinks for 12 hours. Added benefits include a wide mouth so you can pop some ice cubes in, silicone bottom for stability and easy grip flat sides.

Fancy something even smarter? The LARQ bottle boasts self-cleaning and water purification features. Using ultraviolet (UV-C) LED lights, the bottle claims to ‘eliminate up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants’ from the bottle. Available in six stylish shades, the bottle filters water in 60 seconds, self-cleans every two hours and keeps cold water chilled for up to 24 hours. Plus, 5% of proceeds from the special Benefits bottle goes directly to Well Aware, a charity working towards providing clean water in communities.

What tricks keep your travel stress-free when you’re away for business?


*While these options appear to meet airport restrictions and customers have reviewed them for hand luggage use, we cannot guarantee that every airport will allow them through security.
