Make Travel Arrangements for a Business Trip from Milwaukee to Tokyo

When you think of someone in an IT career field job, you likely think of them as sitting around at a desk in the same location, day after day.  While this may ring true for entry level employees, when you are working at a company that deals with clients on a wider scale (that is, beyond just the local region) you will often end up traveling to meet with clients and making deals when you have managed to make you way higher up the ladder to a higher up position, such as a project manager.  A business trip could be something as small as driving a few towns over and spending a night – but on another hand, it could be something far, far larger – such as a trip to the other side of the globe, like Tokyo, Japan. There are many things to consider for costs when you are traveling for business.  There are certainly lots of instances where the company will pay for it – either in full, or in part.  Even in these cases though, there’s always things that you should be aware of as potential out of pocket costs for you – such as getting a passport if you don’t already have one, or renewing one that has since expired.  The cost of this would be $110 plus a $25 fee – and if you’re doing it on short notice, it will cost you another $60 to expedite the process.  If your employer is covering your transportation costs, you’re in luck.  But that doesn’t mean you won’t to bring along money for additional expenses...

Planning a trip to Shanghai, China

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.

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. After...
