That famous quip from New York’s infamous Donald Trump has some truth, even for business travel. Keeping the nature of your travels clear from the get-go can do a lot to iron out potential business travel bumps, and stress. While your friends think you’re out jet setting the truth is that business travel really is just more business. Work is work, whether you’re at home base or on the go. Often when you’re out of town for work, you have to try and cram in even more hours to make the most of your travel expenses. That’s why we’ve put together a few tips to make the most of your business trips in Montreal.
