Avoid any unnecessary stress and ensure your trip runs smoothly with these business travel tips and hacks; including essential packing tips, where to stay and making time for you.

Planning Ahead

  • A business trip to a new destination can be daunting, so it’s a good idea to download an itinerary app to your phone or device, enabling you to easily keep tabs on your itinerary and travel details at the touch of a button. Keep a copy available offline just in case the app is cloud-reliant or you run out of phone power.
  • Check the visa requirements for Singapore prior to travel. Requirements vary from country to country and may depend on the length of time you plan to stay in Singapore. Ensure you check in plenty of time as a visa can take some time to process.
  • If you travel regularly and planning to return to Singapore, why not sign up to a loyalty program to get rewards as you travel. Guests staying at Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay can join Le Club AccorHotels, where you’ll not only get to earn points from your very first stay, but you also get early-bird access to AccorHotels private sales and can enjoy benefits with more than 50 brands partners including Qatar Airways and Europcar car
  • Let your well-travelled friends know on social media that you’ll be in Singapore, and soon enough you’ll have plenty of tips of where to go and what to see while in the area.
  • It’s a good idea to download a few episodes of your favourite podcasts, audio book, Netflix series or sync your Spotify offline. You never know who you may end up next to on your flight.
