Traveling in the skies today has become more like a job than pleasure or leisure. Most days you just don’t want to deal with the headaches that come with it. The most common mistake of the business traveler is that they become too busy to want to know what to do and what not to do to prevent these migraines.
First of all, you must remember that becoming CEO or Vice President was not achieved by having someone else do the job for you; well the same rules apply with traveling on business.
Though it is recognized that making travel arrangements should be left up to the secretary, it is most important that you take the plane by its wings and assist your assistant by being included with every aspect of your travel plans.
It’s not a bad idea to start familiarizing yourself with the rules of the air when things go awry, in the events of flight cancellations, ticket exchanges, car and hotel snafus.
Let’s focus our attention on the subject of the dreaded flight cancellation. Well first of all, you need to start out fully loaded with a list of earlier and later flights accompanied with a list of alternate airlines that goes to the same destination.
Even though you can call your emergency coordinator that has been assigned to your company, there is millions of other busy gurus out there, associated with the same emergency service attempting to contact them as well.
Remember to always stay ten steps ahead of the game. Being proactive will eliminate undue stress and anger which blocks all channels of energy flow to your brain. Instead, recognize that this is only a situation and you have full control. It only becomes a problem when you’ve given up the control.
Patiently wait your turn in line and speak to an agent about rebooking on the next available flight which doesn’t cost you anything, except your time.
The next flight is full, but you’ve done your homework and know that the other carrier has a flight around the same time, here is when pull the ace out of the deck and ask if you can be protected on another carrier. Not just any carrier, you’ve come prepared with all the flight details.
The agent is astonished that you now know the secret. Who asks for protection? Only the ones that know, that’s who. Knowledge is power, and utilized to its fullest in a positive manner can be very rewarding.
The other people in line behind you think you are speaking about security or having a bodyguard or something, so much for them to learn.
