News & Newsworthy

Planning for a business trip does not need to take over your day. With a travel management company such as Tangerine Travel, we focus on clients utilizing our resources to ensure an easy booking process. Here are some helpful tips when getting ready for your next trip.

Review Your Corporate Travel Policy 

This is huge pain point for travelers. Many do not have a full understanding of what their travel policy entails and can lose money because of it. By sitting with your travel manager or calling your Tangerine Travel advisor you can save time and heartache if you know in advance whether you will need trip approval or if there are maximum spending guidelines.

Manage Expenses from the Beginning 

Begin your expense report at the time of booking. Record registration fees and other prepaid purchases before you leave for your trip. When you return, complete the report by adding meal, transportation, client entertainment and other incidental expenses. If you are a Concur user and your company uses its expense tool, you are able to record expenses and upload receipts directly from your phone. Contact our Concur Help Desk if you have any questions about Concur Expense.

Out of Office Reply

It is important to set an “out of office” reply so those contacting you are aware that you are away, however letting fellow employees know you will be gone is equally as important. Make sure to communicate who is taking care of business while you are traveling.

Get Organized

Utilize your phone when on the road with organizational apps. Travel app Tripit allows you to organize and access your itineraries, boarding passes and reservation IDs. Also travel with hardcopies of your itinerary and travel documents, especially when going overseas where network connections can be inconsistent. Keep everything in a folder and add your receipts for reimbursements to it so you have everything in one spot.

Mark Your Calendar

Before your trip, set a calendar reminder to review your reservations, confirm departure times and create an “out-of-office” message for email and voicemail. When booking through Tangerine Travel, your travel advisor will send you an itinerary that has the “option to add” to your Outlook calendar which helps with communicating your travel to others and helping you to be prepared.

2017 is gearing up to be another record breaking travel year. TSA has announced it will be limiting the amount of travelers going through expedited screening lines without Pre Check. We suggest enrolling in a Trusted Traveler program that will allow passengers to head to a shorter line and leave shoes on and laptops in their cases. Programs such as Pre Check, Global Entry and NEXUS allow travelers to utilize the expedited security screenings and avoid the long lines. Below is some information on each option to find the best program for you depending on your travel. 

TSA Pre-Check – This option is great for frequent and business travelers who can go through separate security lines, leave on their shoes and belts, and keep their laptops in the bag.  For $85 you can be enrolled in TSA Pre-Check for five years.  You must be a U.S. citizen and lawful permanent resident and there is no passport requirement to be approved.  You can apply for TSA Pre-Check online and then make an appointment at one of the enrollment centers around the country to provide fingerprints and identification.

Global Entry – This program is great for international travelers and can coincide with TSA Pre-Check.  Upon arrival to the United States, you can go straight to a Global Entry Kiosk without filling out any forms.  Insert your passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place fingertips on the scanner for fingerprint verification and make a customs declaration.  The membership is $100 for five years or you can pay an extra $15 from the Pre-Check program to Global Entry.  A passport is required for Global Entry and you can apply online and then make an appointment at one of several enrollment centers around the country to provide fingerprints and identification as well as be interviewed.    For a list of eligible countries and more information on Global Entry, click here.

NEXUS – This option is the Canadian version of Global Entry, offering expedited processing at airports and land borders when entering the U.S. and Canada.  On the plus side, NEXUS is less expensive at $50 for a five-year membership.  The negative is there are only a handful of enrollment centers for NEXUS and they are located near the Canadian borders in places like upstate New York, Maine, Montana and Washington State.  You can pre-enroll online, visit an enrollment center for an interview, provide fingerprints and verify ID.  There is no passport requirement.  For information on NEXUS please, click here.

Still deciding on what program is best for you? Talk with your Tangerine travel consultant about your travel destinations and they will help you make the best choice for you as a traveler.

Air travel can be the most stressful part of a trip with long security lines and overcrowded flights. Tangerine Travel has compiled a list of apps that offer travelers dining options, lounge locations, flight information and even luggage tracking. Our goal is to help you feel at ease when traveling to your next destination.

LoungeBuddy – No need to hit 100k miles to have access to airport lounges. This innovative app offers a selection of accessible lounges that travelers can relax in while waiting for a flight. LoungeBuddy offers photos, hours, location, amenities, cost and reviews before you pay for entry. With over 2,000 lounges in over 600 airports travelers will have the opportunity to unwind before their next flight. (Free) A Tangerine Travel Tip: We can help you set up your account through LoungeBuddy so you can enjoy a lounge of your choice. Call your Tangerine Travel Advisor to find out how you can utilize a lounge during a layover or before a long overseas flight.

Airport Maps – An airport map app may sound simple but navigating through large airports such as Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport can be difficult. The app can locate the gate of connecting flights, airport lounges or places to eat and shop. Airport Maps is accessible in more than 60 North American airports. (Free)

FlightView – This flight tracking app offers real-time information on any flight. The app tracks flights on a map showing flight paths, sends alerts to keep travelers updated on a flight’s status and can also check where a flight is arriving. ($0.99)

FlightBoard – This flight tracking app is modeled after the arrival/departure boards used at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and allows your phone to access any flight time from more than 3,000 airports and 1,400 airlines. The app is updated with flight information every five minutes and can be shared through social media or email. A perfect way to communicate with other members of your group if you are using only Wi-Fi when traveling abroad. ($3.99)

Entrain – This app helps you feel refreshed from a busy travel day. Using a set of lighting schedules which correspond to time zones around the globe, University of Michigan researchers have been able to find a way to ease the groggy, sluggish feeling that comes with jetlag. Entrain works with users to monitor their circadian clocks and adjust to new time zones by setting alarms and adjusting sleep patterns. (Free)

Trackdot – This app may be the priciest of all our featured apps but it is also one that may offer those who check bags the most peace of mind. Trackdot is a device that syncs with an app on your smartphone to report its position (inside your bag) on the ground or inside the plane. The GSM-based technology is able to track your belongings and, in the event of lost luggage, can aid in a quick recovery.

Is there an app that you cannot live without while on the road? Let us know what helps you get through your travel days by emailing us at teamtangerine@tangerinetravel.com or let your Tangerine Travel Advisor know what travel app works best for you!

Being comfortable on a plane and even getting a power nap is a great opportunity to reset your body’s clock so you arrive to your destination feeling refreshed and rested.  Here are some helpful travel tips to ensure a successful and relaxed travel experience that has you ready to hit the ground running.  

In-Flight Meals

Since prime travel typically happens during significant meal times, several airlines such as Alaska offer passengers anything from a full meal native to the area in which you are traveling to a tasty cheese and fruit tray featuring Seattle’s famous Beecher’s Cheese. If you would prefer to bring your own meal, here is a delicious idea:  Pack cooked whole grain pasta in a food container, along with Parmesan cheese and a veggie of your choice in small plastic bag. Ask the flight attendant for half a cup of hot water, pour it over your pasta and close it for a minute or two and then drain it back into the cup.  Now that your pasta is warm add your cheese and veggies and you have an easy, healthy meal to satisfy you for the duration of the flight.

Stay Hydrated

The air in the cabin is not humidified, which leads to a feeling of being thirsty and chapped. Staying hydrated can combat time zone changes and help prevent that run down feeling. The good news is you can start preparing early. Begin by drinking as much water at the gate as you can comfortably hold for about an hour.  This is typically how long it takes for the seatbelt sign t to be switched off.  Then focus on drinking about 8 ounces every hour or two.  Avoid drinking alcohol or anything with caffeine, as they are major dehydrators.

Pack a Sleep Kit

Sleep kits can be purchased at most airport shops these days but including the basics from your own home can bring any traveler more comfort!  Make sure your sleep kit includes a U-shaped travel pillow, an eye mask to block out light, and either ear plugs or noise-cancelling headphones.  If you have space pack a small blanket or a large shawl to keep a comfortable temperature while resting on the plane.  Each of these items is essential to road warriors, especially those who do not have a full lay-down seat.  If you have a red-eye flight or you are crossing a few time zones, a sleep kit will help combat the jet lag you may feel upon your arrival.
