International Travel: For Business and Pleasure

By December 6, 2012

Follow me on:

Are you traveling internationally during the holidays?  Many import-export business owners try to tie a couple of important business appointments (for example, meeting with a customer or supplier) together with a great holiday overseas trip and that's not a bad idea provided you can set aside appropriate time to meet with people.

Before you take off though, you might have a look at two particularly handy sites to ensure you have a safe and comfortable journey. They both offer practical tips and advisories to protect international travelers from potential harm.

I find that travelling for both business and pleasure is a great idea. In fact, it is like hitting two birds with one stone! Those in the business of import and export can market the products better if they know where the product came from and how it was made. Likewise, they will also be able test and check the product more thoroughly and decide to get more supplies from and exporter if another country. Business and pleasure are the top two reasons why people travel, if they can do both in one trip, then it’s even better.
