Is Productive Business Travel Possible?

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Young jetsetters and industry veterans have one thing in common: business travel. Business travel is such a large component of the travel and hospitality industry many airlines, hotels and trains have special "Business Class" options.


You must have a proactive, inspired mindset for business travel. Traveling is stressful even for vacations and honeymoons, so of course work trips can take a toll. With some planning, leaving the office can be productive and enjoyable at the same time.


Eat Well

No one can work when hungry and uncomfortable. Greasy foods cause stomach aches and convenient junk food is not filling. Nutritious meals are becoming easier to find in airports, or near train terminals and bus stations. You can also prepare ahead of time.


Stay Hydrated

  • Keep whole fruit, nuts or trail mixes in your briefcase.
  • Visit your hotel restaurant online to preview the healthiest meal options.
  • Pre-order breakfast the night before for a great start to your day.


Good hydration aides productivity because your body and mind stays a well-oiled machine. But when you are away from home and enjoying yourself you may become unaware of dehydration.


Time to Unwind

  • Go easy on coffee. Cafes abound at airports, train stations and bus terminals because the mere smell of fresh-brewed coffee is enough to jolt the weariest travelers. Use caffeine to stay alert and productive, but in moderation. Too much stimulation will keep you up at night and leave you groggy, which hurts production. Hold off on a second or third cup at business breakfasts and lunches.
  • Drink water and unconcentrated fruit juices. Add lemon to your water at lunch and dinner meetings, or choose sparkling waters for variety. Limousines stock complimentary water bottles because busy people skip water while on the run. Feel free to drink during your rides and take a bottle with you to drink later.
  • Limit or ban alcohol. A nice drink is certainly part of business culture. However, alcoholic drinks add up quickly on the shortest trips and certainly long ones. Imbibe with your colleagues to show team spirit if you must, but limit consumption to two drinks a day.


All work and no play makes business travelers a frustrated lot. When business travelers are so busy they are overwhelmed, stress can cause productivity loss. But in a Vancouver limousine , Whistler and other top cities can be pleasurable tourist destinations.


  • Book your limousine earlier than you need to arrive to your next obligation, and our well-versed chauffeurs will take the scenic route. You can admire the local landscape and city skyline in comfortable, temperature-controlled style and luxury.
