Travelling can sometimes be a stressful experience, and when it comes to frequent trips for business, things can often be tiring. We’ve put together our guide to the top 5 travel hacks every frequent traveller should know to help combat any stress and make your next business trip run even smoother. 


Unpack when you arrive 

We are pretty confident when we say nobody likes living out of a suitcase. Things start off neat and tidy, but within a few days belongings are on the floor, clothes are crumpled, and suitcase living is not so much fun. Unpacking when you arrive at our apartments may seem like a simple tip for frequent business travellers, but it can help you feel more relaxed within your new home, no matter how long your stay with us is.


Pack light 

When travelling for business, pulling around a heavy suitcase is not always the simplest task. Therefore, packing light is a good option to keep your trips stress-free when on the go. Think about what you actually need on a day-to-day basis, and make sure to pre-plan your outfits to get your luggage weight down. This is a great way to compile your belongings and make sure you pack only what you will use. 

With our apartments here at The Stay Company, you don’t have to worry about packing towels, shower gel or shampoo as these are all included in your stay. All of our apartments are serviced weekly, meaning you’ll never have to worry about running out of the essentials during your stay. 


Explore the area 

Our serviced apartments are in great central locations throughout Derby and Nottingham, and exploring the local area is a great option for evenings or any spare time when away on a business trip. From restaurants to local parks and museums, Nottingham and Derby have it all. It would be a shame not to make the most of the many things to do on your doorstep. 


Go Food Shopping

As much as we all like eating out from time to time, you can’t beat a home-cooked meal. It’s the best way to save time and money on a business trip. Being in the city centre, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to supermarket options, alternatively, you can even get it delivered straight to your door. 

Plus, the fully equipped kitchen in your room will make it easy to whip up delicious meals in no time!


A touch of home 

This one might seem like a bit of a silly one, but when you’re away from family and friends for extended periods of time, you’re probably going to start missing them. We like our serviced apartments to feel like a home away from home, so what's more comforting than a few home touches to make you feel comfortable in your new space? Whether it's photographs of your loved ones to display or a simple blanket, little touches can make the world of difference when away on business trips.
