What to take on a work trip

The key to a successful work trip is preparation. You have to make sure that you pack the right things for the right job, and be prepared to spend a little extra on what you need to get the job done.

Business necessities

Add the following items to your work trip packing list to make sure you have everything you’ll need in terms of technology:

What To Take on a Work Trip

Either a laptop or a tablet

You will require access to your personal business files, programs, and presentation tools for whatever business you intend to do. You can work effectively while traveling anywhere on the globe if you have your own laptop.

To keep your laptop safe while traveling, it’s a good idea to get a backpack, briefcase, or messenger bag with a dedicated laptop sleeve. If you’re only bringing one bag, go for suitcases with a laptop compartment.

Chargers and electronic devices

Make sure to bring both your personal cell phone and your work phone if you have one. All of your electrical device charging cords, including wall plugs if necessary, should be packed. For meetings, seminars, and personal use, you’ll need all of your batteries fully charged. If your phone frequently dies, think about getting a portable charger or power bank so you can easily recharge it while you’re out and about. Additionally, you can take a portable projector with you if you’ll be doing a presentation for your clients.

Wifi hotspot

Carrying your own internet hub could be useful so you never have to be concerned about a shaky connection while traveling. This can be useful in places like hotels, convention centers, and airports where heavy user traffic might cause sluggish connection speeds.

Earbuds or headphones

These acoustic equipment are useful for having video conferences in a variety of settings or for working while traveling. They can also be used to pass the time while taking breaks by providing entertainment.

Business cards

A straightforward business card with your contact information is simply incomparable. Even better, you may include a QR code that your contacts can scan with their device to access a business website, social network account, or online portfolio.

 A remote slide advancer

Using a physical device to navigate your presentation’s slides can be useful if you want to engage with other business people in the room. On your phone, you might be able to use an app as well.


You might require power adaptors that fit your charging cords if you’re traveling to a different nation. Before you travel, research foreign standards so you have time to buy a gadget if you need one.

Journal and pen

Even if there are digital note-taking apps for almost every device, it can be useful to be prepared to take handwritten notes. Even if there is a technical issue, you will still be ready to take notes. Sometimes at a meeting or even over a coffee break, creative ideas that turn into large business concepts are scribbled on a scrap of paper.
