When travelling on business, you want to be efficient, connected and comfortable. Here are some ideas to help make your business trips more successful - and enjoyable:

Look for the best deals

The internet has become invaluable for finding the best deals on hotels, flights, car hire and travel insurance. You can nearly always find discounted rates if you look around long enough.

You may want to consider travelling to some of the major European cities by train, as this can be cheaper than flying and often faster, once time getting to - and through - the airport is taken into account.

It also makes sense to get the most from your air miles and hotel stays by joining reward schemes.

Do your research

The internet allows you to find out virtually everything about your destination in advance - so use it! Look out for weather warnings and significant local dates which may cause disruptions or accommodation shortages. Download road and subway maps well in advance, and make sure you're up to speed with the local protocol when it comes to such things as tipping and greeting.

Turn delays into an advantage

Be realistic and always allow extra time for delays. If you do get stuck, you can use the time to get some work done - many airports have business areas where you can access the internet and print documents. You can get the latest travel information, including road, rail and flight delays before you leave, via your mobile phone or the internet.

Avoid the stress

Some people find travelling exhausting, stressful or lonely. Remember to switch off your laptop and give yourself adequate time to rest and if you can, take time out from work to explore some of the local sights. E-mail is becoming the most popular way to stay in touch with home, so make sure you have an account that you can access anywhere. If you do want to phone home, check that your mobile has network coverage in the country you are visiting, since this can be cheaper than calling from the hotel.

In the UK the term accountant is not protected by law, therefore anyone can call themselves an accountant. Being an ACCA member firm means that you can have confidence that we are qualified to handle your finances, help your business grow and that we are regulated by the leading accountancy body in the world. The ACCA Qualification provides a wide-ranging skill-set, which means we are trained to provide both strategic and operational input and adapt quickly to your changing management accounting needs.

Unqualified persons who have trained for book-keeping or tax only simply aren't able to provide these other services as their skillset is too narrow.
