Preparing for the trip ahead

Preparing for the trip ahead

Whether you are a seasoned business traveler or heading out on your first trip there are a number of new factors to consider when preparing for your trip. This includes understanding the rules and regulations of your destination, knowing what you might need to bring on your trip that wasn’t necessary before, and ensuring you are armed with the tools that will enable you to keep up to date and in-touch while on the road.

Your FCM travel consultant can assist in helping you understand the travel restrictions currently in place when traveling locally or abroad. IATA also provides a summary of international restrictions. Keep in mind that even if you have an existing visa to travel to a destination it may no longer be valid so be sure to discuss this with your travel consultant.

Traveler checklist

Now, more than ever, it is important to be well prepared before embarking on a trip. Use this checklist as a guide to understand the rules and regulations, required documents and items to take with you.
