Travel PlanEven though you may have experience traveling, it is always a good idea to make a business travel plan. Many companies actually require you to submit some form of travel plan before you are even allowed to go on a business trip. But even if such a requirement is not imposed I’d still recommend to make one.

Why should I make a Business Travel Plan?

Think of it as a flight plan: no airline pilot is ever allowed to take off without one. So why should you?


You can make one easily using a Business Travel Plan template to help you accomplish three things:

  • you will have recorded data about your trip for personal reference
  • people you leave behind will be properly informed about your whereabouts
  • you will be prepared for the conditions at your destination including emergencies

A Plan helps you Prepare

Making a Business Travel Plan will prompt you to investigate a number of issues before you leave like:

  • Money issues (currency, import/export limitations, credit/debit card acceptance, etc.)
  • Climatic conditions that may require special clothing to protect against. Think of extreme temperatures (high or low) or tropical rainstorms.
  • Required Vaccinations
  • Local political situation and (terrorist) threats
  • Embassy location and contact information for possible evacuation

Hopefully you may never need some of this information, but you’d be better safe than sorry!

A Plan helps you Enjoy your Stay

You may wish to find out about the destination you are visiting. Maybe there’s more than business you’d want to do while you’re there. It will be much easier to find out beforehand than during your trip.

Get Started and Have a good trip!

You can download a business travel plan template in word format. You can adapt to your own liking. Modify it after each trip and add any information category that you feel was missing. As a result you’ll be better prepared next time!
