Use of Business News: updates are critical information for the frequent business traveler. If you miss business news it can really cause problems. Imagine a new airline comes to your local airport, and offers fantastic deals for a limited time to establish a customer base. If you don’t know about this, you will miss out on some fantastic travel deals and end up paying much more than you have to. There are worse outcomes than spending too much, also.
What if you book a flight and find out that an airline strike started the day before you were supposed to leave? If you had known back when you booked the flight, you would have gone with another airline of course! You’ll also need to know about weather and travel conditions for your destination. If you live somewhere warm, and are traveling, you may wrongly estimate the conditions. What if it is cold where you are going? What if you are experiencing summer, but the destination is in the other hemisphere and is the middle of winter?
If you pack wrong, because you don’t expect the cold weather, you’ll be most miserable.
And it is so unnecessary. When you travel to many countries there will be people who speak English. This will not always be the case. If it is not an English speaking country you will need a guide or interpreter to help you get around.
Some areas of the globe have a very high crime rate. It is best to know this before you leave. Be prepared, and don’t be ignorant about the laws of a country or the crime rate. In China there is a lot of credit card fraud, for instance. You’ll want to watch your receipts. Speaking of China, did you expect to be able to rent a car there? If you don’t have a Chinese driver’s license, you can’t drive in China. It does not matter that you have an American or a European license. You will need to find another form of transportation. Internet sites update their information and news as frequently as hourly. There is really no reason to be unprepared.
