Johannesburg is known as the economic workhorse that powers the African continent. Travelling to Johannesburg on business, especially if you are new to the concept of business travel can be both exciting and daunting. Once upon a time, most people considered business travel to be glamorous, and even fun. Not anymore. Business trips can be both a thrilling and an extremely stressful time in your life.
One of the harsh realities in life that you have to learn to accept is that not everything can be fixed and there will always be factors outside of your control that you must learn to accept. These can range from delayed flights, to cancelled meetings, and are all out of your control. There are a whole host of factors that can stress you out on a business trip and one of the biggest tips to avoid them is to try and be as well prepared as possible.
If you are flying to Johannesburg, rather than worrying about who is going to pick you up from the airport, and how you are going to get around between meetings, book a rental car. This means that you do not have to rely on anyone. Booking a rental vehicle is so simple, and thanks to Hertz Car Hire, it can also be done online.
Always choose a vehicle similar to the one you have at home. By doing this, you will not have to adjust your individual driving style with an unknown car that has a different clutch setting to your own. Make things easier. Hertz has numerous branches situated all over the country, and the minute you land, you can pick up your rental car key, right there at the airport.
Once you transportation issues are sorted out, another aspect to consider is the best type of accommodation you can find that is conveniently situated close to the area where you will be conducting your business. Sandton is the most opulent area in Johannesburg and is currently the most important business and financial district in South Africa and across Africa.
If you take into consideration that the trip itself may be stressful, then you should find the right type of accommodation that will have you refreshed for the meetings ahead. Boutique hotels in Sandton are the first choice for any harassed business traveller, because all you basically need for business travel accommodation is a comfortable bed, a bathroom, reliable Wi-Fi, adequate space to work and a good, quiet location.
This can all be found at a boutique hotel, as well as the added benefit of personalised service.
