business trip

Many business organisations aim to reach the global market. Even small and startup enterprises have their eyes on the international business scene. After all, it is the most crucial competitive strategy, especially since technology has made international transactions a breeze.

But despite the efficacy of technology in expanding business operations, genuine and personal connections are still crucial to globalisation. This is why many people still go on overseas business trips.

For many, going on business trips may seem luxurious. Still, those who actually frequently hop on a plane to accomplish something for work know that business trips are rather stressful arrangements.

First of all, you deal with jetlag. Then, if you’re flying economy, you’ll spend hours and hours in a cramped sitting spot. On top of that, there’s rarely any opportunity to mix pleasure into the arrangement since the trip is mainly focused on getting where you need to go to get work done.

If you visit Yas Island Abu Dhabi for business, your travels don’t need to be like the experience described above. While you may face some discomfort along the way, you can beat those by carefully planning the trip to eliminate the usual hassles and actually find time for pleasure.

So, if you want a more pleasant business trip to Yas Island Abu Dhabi, here are five tips you should follow:

1. Make sure you’re healthy prior to the trip

Load up on your vitamins and get some exercise. Physical activity is effective in reducing stress hormone levels. Studies also show that exercise-induced endorphins help reduce stress-related symptoms.

The fast pace of your life during the business trip will require a fit and healthy body. You’ll have an easier time doing what you need to if your body’s free from aches and other discomforts.

2. Include relaxation when planning for the trip

If you will be staying at one of the top hotels in Abu Dhabi, remember to check if their services include relaxation amenities.

After a long day of travel and work, you need to make sure your body recuperates properly. Don’t just head straight to bed. Getting some much-needed pampering for an hour or two will greatly impact how you feel the following day.

There’s nothing wrong with adding a bit of fun to your business trip, even if it’s for just a moment. After all, stress can affect your productivity – and not in the best way, either.

Whether it’s a quick stroll down Yas Beach, an hour-long massage at the spa at DoubleTree by Hilton, or even just a leisurely coffee hour before or after a meeting, set aside time to unwind. If you’re heading somewhere new, have a moment to take in the scenery.

Who knows? If you explore other places besides your business meeting venue, you may even get the opportunity to expand your network.

3. Research the location

There are always lovely places to see on Yas Island, which offers something new for you to see and do. If they’re nearby, it won’t be too much of a stretch for your time to include them in your itinerary.

Business trips should be enriching, and discovering a new place is one great way to secure such an experience. You can use various phone apps or simply go online and type the events and other interesting provisions. Don’t forget to add “Yas Island” with your search query so the results are narrowed down to your destination.

4. Forget public transport

Getting to your intended destinations fast is crucial when you’re trying to stick to a schedule. This is where car leasing can come in handy.

According to Emirati travel experts, renting a vehicle is more economical than riding a taxi, not to mention more convenient than riding a bus. Plus, it will give you the freedom to include destinations of interest in your itinerary and to rest and recreate in between trips.

Many car leasing and rental companies have a vast collection of automobiles you can choose from while offering better rates throughout the year. They pay closer attention to every client’s specific requirements to ensure complete satisfaction with their service. You can get a vehicle that will go well with the image you need to maintain, as well as your driving style, without creating a big dent in your travel budget.

5. Use the power of your hotel’s concierge

If you wish to eat at a five-star restaurant, check out a theatre performance, or get tickets to a concert during the trip, your hotel concierge can take care of those for you if you’re staying at prime accommodation. All you have to do is tell them what you want, and the concierge will use their connections to make your request happen.

The Takeaway

Business trips that are often perceived as stressful can be transformed into more enjoyable experiences with careful planning. Prioritise your health, choose convenient transportation, and incorporate unwinding into the itinerary. Yas Island is an excellent destination, after all. With the help of your hotel concierge, you can enhance your overall trip to make it both productive and pleasurable.
