Even for those who love travel, business trips can be stressful. Planning for presentations and meetings, navigating an unfamiliar city, and doing all you can to prepare for any unforeseen problems can be time-consuming and stressful. To help minimize the stress and maximize your precious time, ZUGU CASE would like to share with you some tips for efficient business travel.
If you're looking for a durable and sleek magnetic iPad case to protect your iPad and also offer unbeatable functionality, be sure to check out our iPad cases.
Sign Up For Global Entry Status
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has a program that allows qualifying travelers to bypass the long line at customs and instead go through a special, expedited line. This can save you some serious time. However, don’t expect to show up at the airport, quickly get approved, and be ushered through the line. To be enrolled in this program, it’s best to begin the process online. Learn more about the Global Entry program.
Keep Essentials Ready To Go
One great time-saving tip is to always have your essentials ready to go, especially if you are constantly traveling. Keeping your essentials, like toiletries, charging cables, and other daily necessities, in a bag and waiting to go. This will reduce packing time, and it will also help you avoid that sinking feeling of being midflight and asking yourself, “did I seriously forget my toothbrush?”
Travel can be stressful, and typically, the more stuff you have the great this stress can be. This is why many business travelers will tell you to relegate your possession to a carry-on size suitcase. Not only will this be easier to transport, but it also means it will stay on the plane with you on your flight, which means no lost luggage and no risk of going to your first business meeting in the same jeans and tee you were wearing during the flight.
Sign Up For Frequent Travel Programs
As any frequent business traveler will tell you, taking advantage of the frequent flier programs is essential. If your company does not take full responsibility for all the planning and purchasing, the onus will fall on you to do your research and find which programs you want to be loyal to. Being loyal to one is key since this will give you the best perks and upgrades in the long run. If you choose not to be committed to one airline or hotel, the second best thing you can do is get a rewards credit card that lets you accumulate points and miles regardless of where you do business.
Bring The iPad
At times, it seems like the iPad was made for business travelers. With its size, powerful business-related applications, and great battery life, it’s the perfect travel companion. The display is ideal for mobile productivity, and now, with the recent addition of the Apple Pencil, there seems to be no limit as to what you can do. Whether you want to watch movies, draw, write a story, prepare for your meeting, the iPad will allow you to do all these things — and more — on your flight.

Protect The iPad
Now, that we have established how valuable the iPad can be as a travel accessory, don’t you think it’s important that we talk about how to protect your powerful, little tablet? Of course, you do (did you really think you could read a blog post from an iPad case manufacturer and not see any mention of iPad cases?) When looking for a protective iPad case, the key is to look for one that doesn’t just protect your iPad, but also one that doesn’t infringe on the screen size and also adds functionality to your tablet experience. Our magnetic iPad cases do all this and more. ZUGU CASES offer superior functionality without sacrificing style or usability. Our iPad cases can function as an iPad stand that has eight different angles, and the magnetic flap allows for you to attach your iPad to virtually any metal surface.
