Business Travel Etiquette

  • Be sure to leave the number(s) and addresses where you can be reached while you are away.
  • Keep receipts for all of your expenses.
  • Be conservative in your spending, especially as a new employee or prospective employee.
  • Remember that you represent your organization to all you meet.
  • Plan to be early for all meetings. Allow for delays and changes to travel plans.
  • Keep alcohol to a minimum. (Some organizations do not reimburse for alcohol.)
  • If you have to check out of your hotel before your meetings are over, find out in advance from the Concierge or Bell Captain where you can store your luggage in the interim.
  • Make arrangements to get from the airport to your hotel and from your hotel to the airport well in advance.
