A personal travel manager is the best way to enable a healthy work life balance and peace of mind for busy corporate travellers.
1. SpareOne Mobile Phone
Losing or damaging a phone while travelling can become an enormous inconvenience, so we highly recommend carrying a back up phone while travelling. Thankfully for business travellers SpareOne Plus, an emergency phone service, is available. The phones operate off AA batteries and only require a local sim card to start working. A great tool for a business traveller who can’t afford to be without a phone.
2. Martian Voice Command Watch
The Martian Voice Command Watch combines style and high-tech features to create a product with James Bond class and technology. This unique gadget synchronises to your phone via bluetooth so you can talk and text hands-free when you’re on the go. The watch will also notify you of any notifications or messages that come through your phone – a great tool to use while sitting through business meetings.
As a frequent traveller it can become tricky to keep a track of all the expenses that pile up while moving from boardroom to boardroom and conference to conference. Expensify is a smartphone app designed to sync all of your credit and debit cards, tracking each expense as you go. The app becomes a virtual accountant with the functionality to scan receipts from cash transactions too. Expensify makes it easy to get the expenses report in so a business traveller can spend their home time with the ones they love – not the expenses form.
4. FlightTrack Pro
FlightTrack Pro coordinates your flights and automatically syncs your itineraries, a fantastic system to monitor delays or cancellations. The app notifys you immediately about any delays and will find alternate flights in a tap. It also takes the hassle out of tracking your luggage. Upon arrival at your destination airport ,the app provides a map of the terminal and baggage information so you know exactly where to pick up your bag,
5. Powerbag Rolling Office Case
In a time of never ending technological dependence, having a device run out of power can feel like societal excommunication. Thankfully a new product has emerged to ensure the business traveller is never kept out of the loop. The Powerbag has a built in charging system in the suitcase to allow travellers to charge their favourite devices while on the go. The Powerbag has enough power to charge a smartphone four times over. Aside from the technological advantage, the bag is extremely portable and simple to roll around airport terminals.
