It is unlikely that anyone wants to go on a business trip with a lot of luggage (for which you may also have to pay extra). At the same time, it is important to ensure the most comfortable trip for yourself so that nothing distracts from business. In this material, we have collected useful information about what you need to take with you on a business trip, as well as a list of useful things for a few days, a week or a month.
How to make a list of items that might come in handy
When going on any trip, it is better to prepare a checklist in advance of what to put in a suitcase, bag or backpack. It will also be useful in the process of packing for the return trip: it will help those who are used to forgetting their valuables at the hotel.
Divide all future contents of your luggage (ideally hand luggage) into the following groups:
- • Hygiene accessories.
- • Clothing and footwear (home and business sets, underwear, socks).
- • Documents and money.
- • Equipment (smartphone, laptop, tablet and their chargers, headphones).
- • First aid kit (the necessary minimum of medicines).
It is also important where you store everything. The best option would be the BRIALDI Lagrange bag with many compartments, comfortable handles and a well-thought-out system of property distribution. The product is made of durable, high-quality genuine leather, so you can be sure that the material will not be damaged on the way and will keep the cargo intact. Dividing into two sides (for personal items and for work) will help save time on packing and searching for content.
What to take on a business trip for 2-3 days: a list of the most important things
A short trip involves traveling light. But trying to find and collect everything we need as quickly as possible, we often do it in a hurry. For such a case, you should have a special checklist that you should rely on. Let’s analyze the list of the main items of luggage: you can supplement it based on your own needs.
- Passport (if you are traveling to another country — a passport).
- A pass to an office, corporate facility, or other destination.
- Medical insurance policy.
- Travel list, order — a form with a task from the management (if it exists and is required).
- Information about the hotel reservation, address, contact phone number.
- Driving license (if you plan to rent a vehicle).
- Copies of the above certificates (needed if you need to leave a deposit to the landlord or in case of loss of the original).
Henna document holder will help to keep all the valuables intact, without which no trip can do. This stylish, compact organizer allows you to keep important little things always at hand.
Keep cash to a minimum: keep the main amount on bank cards. Do not keep them in one place — it is better to distribute bills and cards in different compartments.
For a short trip to a business meeting or seminar, one strict suit made of slightly wrinkled fabrics, sets of things for walking around the city and relaxing at home is enough. However, some business trips involve a corporate visit to a restaurant or an important event, which requires a more sophisticated, evening look. In this case, put your wardrobe items “on the way out” with you.
If the trip is planned for cold weather, take a sweater or cardigan. Check the forecast ahead of time and make sure your look matches the local weather. Don’t forget to bring a change of socks and underwear.
- • Compact toothbrush.
- • A small tube of paste.
- • Shower gel.
- • Shampoo.
- • Soap.
- • Means for washing.
- • Washcloth.
- • Comb.
- • Razor.
- • Shaving gel.
- • Nail scissors.
- • Napkins.
- • Cotton buds.
- • Deodorant.
- • Shoe sponge.
For women, the list of useful things for a business trip for two or three days is expanding due to personal cosmetics for applying makeup.
Discreet. Nice. Expensive. Cheap smells are easy to distinguish from expensive ones — saving on eau de toilette or perfume is not worth it. Barely perceptible, soft aroma will leave positive impressions about you with the interlocutor.
The first aid kit should consist of the following categories of drugs:
- • antiseptic;
- • from indigestion;
- • from a cold;
- • painkillers;
- • from poisoning;
- • antipyretic;
- • from a headache;

What food to take on a business trip
If you have a long journey ahead of you, make sure you have a snack. At the same time, you don’t need to take a lot of food — most likely, half of them will go bad, and on the spot you can always eat in a cafe or restaurant. Put with you:
- • fruits vegetables;
- • sandwiches, sandwiches in a lunchbox (you must eat them first);
- • baked or smoked meat;
- • pies, cookies;
- • a small thermos with tea;
- • mineral water.
You should not take huge luggage on wheels on a short trip. First, it’s impractical. Secondly, it will provide unnecessary inconvenience during transportation. If it seems to you that the entire checklist of necessary things will not fit in a compact bag as hand luggage, then you are not familiar with our Dayton and Troy models. They are specially designed for comfortable travel and competent distribution of everything you need.
No need to carry a long cane — look for a small, foldable option that won’t take up much space, but will keep you confident and ready for the weather.
What documents to take on a business trip
Let us dwell on this point in more detail, since it is important to collect all the papers in advance.
Passport, if the trip is limited to the territory of Russia and a foreign passport, if you have a trip or flight to another country. Make multiple copies and scans. Leave the last ones to your relatives so that in case of unforeseen circumstances they can send you an electronic version by e-mail.
This is a form that the management requires to fill out. Sometimes business trips are issued without such papers, but many companies adhere to the strictest reporting. The form puts a mark on the arrival and departure of the employee, and also fills out a report on the work done remotely.
Order to send on a business trip
Written permission from the employer to leave on company business. It is compiled in the personnel department, signed by the head and confirmed by the signature of the employee. The document fixes the fact of the existence of an order to send to another city / country on behalf of the authorities.
The third document that defines the terms of a business trip. Currently, it has been canceled and is optional, but the law does not prohibit its use. The paper indicates the exact dates of departure and return of the traveler, and also confirms the accrual of per diem expenses.
Often, even to move around the city for 2-3 days, you have to spend money on transport rental. In this case, valid, up-to-date rights will be needed. If you plan to travel abroad, they must be international.
Everything in electronic form must be printed. This will save you from unnecessary fuss if the gadget is suddenly discharged or the Internet connection is lost. Put your travel and accommodation information in your document box so you always remember where they are.
What to take on a business trip for a week
Weekly trips are often accompanied by additional events, receptions. But if you want to save space in your luggage and not take 5 different suits for all occasions, we recommend turning to versatility. Gather such a wardrobe so that things in it can be harmoniously and differently combined with each other: for example, wear a shirt from a business suit under both trousers and jeans, and use the same shoes for a laconic office style and for going out.
In any case, you will have to prepare one replacement option for each item (that is, there should be 2 items for all items). So you do not have to hastily look for a laundry half an hour before the start of the meeting, if something happened to the main clothing option.
You will also need a bathrobe or pajamas. You should not relax at home in street form — so wardrobe items will quickly become dirty.

What you need to buy and take on a long business trip for a month: a checklist of things
We have compiled a detailed list of what should be in your suitcase before leaving for another city for 2 weeks or more, taking into account the availability of laundry. The list of items is average and may change based on your personal preferences.
What to take a man
You should start collecting with something without which the trip will simply fail: documents and money. According to the list, check if the document holder contains: a passport or a foreign passport, car rights (if you need them), a medical policy (and insurance if you have to leave Russia), cash and a bank card, tickets, work documentation, travel papers (permits and orders). Make copies of IDs and keep them separate from the originals.
It will not be superfluous to write out important numbers and addresses just in case.
Place shirts, T-shirts, trousers and jackets in one compartment of your suitcase. In another — underwear, pajamas. In the third — socks, jeans and a jumper. In the following — accessories: ties, belts. In a special compartment for shoes — shoes, comfortable seasonal boots and slippers. In the cold season, put also a hat, scarf, thermal underwear and gloves.
Place business accessories separately from personal ones: a phone, business cards and other handouts, a laptop, a tablet, chargers, a notepad and a pen, two flash drives. Don’t forget your wristwatch.
The first aid kit must necessarily consist of a band-aid, iodine and brilliant green (in the form of felt-tip pens), as well as a list of basic medicines. In a large cosmetic bag, store hygiene products: a razor and shaving foam, a toothbrush in a protective case and paste, shower gel and soap, shampoo, wipes (dry and wet), washcloth, deodorant, comb, moisturizer, tweezers, nail scissors and toilet water.

Differences from the previous checklist will be only in two categories. The list of clothes also includes strict blouses and T-shirts, trousers and jeans, underwear, socks, jumpers, pajamas, thermal underwear and warm accessories (if necessary), comfortable shoes, slippers. A classic skirt, jacket, dress, jewelry, high heels, clutch, a small everyday handbag are added to it.
Hygiene accessories consist of a foam/scrub for washing, a mask and other individual products for the skin, a shaving kit, a toothbrush in a case and a tube of paste, soap, shampoo and hair balm, washcloths, antiperspirant, combs, face and hand creams , manicure set, feminine hygiene products. And, of course, no woman can forget her cosmetic bag and perfume.
How to get together quickly
If the nature of your work is such that the news of an urgent departure may be unexpected, follow these recommendations:
- Purchase a bag in advance that is specially adapted for work travel.
- Make sure you always have a first aid kit at home in case you travel.
- The same applies to the main set of hygiene products: select a separate cosmetic bag and store travel versions in it.
- A small steamer will allow you to iron your suit right on the hanger. You can also take it with you.
- A special laptop case and a portable charger in addition to the main one will not hurt.
- Use our checklists to quickly check what you have collected.
What to put things in
The choice of a place to store all personal and work supplies depends on their number. Consider some of the most convenient options.

When choosing, it is important to pay attention to the following characteristics:

- • universality (benefit in the long term);
- • the presence of a system of protection against damage;
