Are you looking forward to your next business trip? For some female employees, it can be quite a scary thought to be hitting the road on a business trip.

There are a lot more things for women to consider when it comes to safety and preparedness when they are traveling but add in the coronavirus and travelling for work (and possibly with work colleagues). The whole thing becomes quite a lot to handle.

Female Solo Travel

There are plenty of websites dedicated to helping female travelers stay safe. Still, not many of them address the topic from a business perspective, so today, we will give you five travel tips for women travelling on business to fill the gap.

Check That Travel Is Safe

With COVID restrictions still in place across a lot of the world, it is best to ensure you still can travel to the destination you are hoping to go to. Beyond COVID, though, some countries are not safe for solo women traveling, putting your male colleagues in the role of a chaperone may prove awkward.

Companies like AmexGBT have connected services worldwide to help out with this kind of thing, ensure your company is signed up with their survives and take full advantage of their knowledge and expertise where you can.

Be Mindful of Cultural Differences

If you are visiting a country with a different culture, find out if there is anything specific that you must do to fit in. Tourists in many countries get a bit of a free pass, but if you are there on business it is important to ensure you are not upsetting cultural sensitivities.

This could mean wearing a modest dress in Saudi Arabia, or even ensuring your shoulders are covered in China.

Stay in Touch

No matter where you are in the world, there will be dangers. Not all dangers are specific to women either. It is important to stay in touch when you are away, be that staying in touch with your family by getting a local SIM card or keeping a check-in with your colleagues.

This is important to do if you are all off in different directions during the day; a quick check-in via a work WhatsApp group will work wonders.

Only Travel in Licensed Taxis

This applies worldwide and whether you are travelling for business or leisure, but always ensure you are taking licensed taxis and cabs.

Your company’s travel policy should cover this, but do not be afraid to ask the hotel to book you a cab if you are unsure.

Use Generic Baggage

Sometimes, we like to splash out on nice clothes and nice bags, but sadly that can mean we stick out a lot. Consider using generic bags, even just for travelling to and from your destination.

You can always pack your expensive handbag in your suitcase but make your suitcases and your travel bags generic to ensure that they do not stand out, and you will not be labelling yourself as a standout person unwittingly.
