So, you want to plan a business trip to Shanghai, China from Milwaukee, well here is my guide on how to successfully plan and execute this business trip. First off you need to make sure all your credentials are in place. Since you will be going international you will need to make sure that you have a valid ID and passport. If you don’t then you will need to take some a little bit to plan for some extra time as it could take anywhere from four to six weeks to receive your passport. Another thing you may need to do ahead of time is to make sure all your responsibilities at home are taking care of. What I mean by that is if you have any children, pets, or anything else that would take additional care, you will need to make sure you have someone to take care of them while you are gone. Now on to planning the trip. You want to do all the research and comparisons that you can to find the best deals. Do research on which flights are the cheapest from here to Shanghai, which hotels might be the cheapest for you to stay at, which car rental service is available for the best cost, and which restaurants you will be dinning at for each of your meals. In my case with doing the business trip expenses, I used United Airlines for the flights, Hotels.com for the hotel room, the airports car rental service, and for food I decided to make it simple and eat at McDonald’s for all of my meals.
