3. A hotel with an inconvenient location & a boring view

4. Not having the local adaptor again!

We’ve all had this problem at least once in our lives. It just gets worse for corporate travellers who might have to travel to various countries at short notice period. Have you ever considered investing in a worldwide adaptor that works in about 150 countries? Probably, this is your new business travel friend.

6. Got an important meeting & the taxi is delayed

Taxis are not always reliable and can be one of the main reasons of being late to your meeting. Uber is one of the popular taxi service apps that can avoid delays. Why not download some useful business travel apps before you start your journey?
