How to Save Money on Business Travel
For those who travel frequently for work, what might feel like pinching pennies day-to-day has the potential to accumulate to significant savings. If you’re one of the travel warriors whose job description includes multiple flights a month, keep these tips in mind as you plan your trips to reap in the long-term savings.
Go for add-on fees sparingly. Sure, things like priority boarding and checked luggage might be necessary every once in a while, but try not to put these on your travel expense budget every time you fly. They can quickly add up to a whole flight’s worth of expenses! Do a little research and see if an airline provides what you’re looking for at no cost, such as Southwest’s free checked bags.
Pick a loyalty program and stick to it! Many travel services reward people for coming back again and again. Frequent travel combined with these loyalty perks means a quick way to earn free flights, an elevated status with an airline, and more.

Find airlines with free Wi-Fi so you can get some work done in transit.
