TripActions Joins #TravelSkills Twitter Chat

Business travel is an incredibly rewarding and productive part of growing a company and career, but it can get rough being away from home and dealing with frustrating, outdated booking tools.

The weekly #TravelSkills chat on Twitter provides an opportunity to brush up on road warrior know-how such as insider scoops on the best promotions, finding the best deals, and nabbing the best hotel room. It’s also a great place to catch up on the week’s biggest travel news stories, share travel photos and experiences, and build a Twitter following for further connections.

Chris McGinnis, travel columnist and TravelSkills founder, and Johnny Jet, one of Forbes‘ top 10 travel influencers, moderate the weekly #TravelSkills chat. TripActions was thrilled to join them last week as co-host and sponsor to talk about living our best lives as frequent travelers.

The conversation covered favorite business travel destinations, advice for a first-time business traveler, tips to minimize jetlag and master packing, the best business travel apps, work-life balance, and much more.


Johnny was tweeting from Los Angeles, Chris from San Francisco, and the TripActions team from Palo Alto and London. The #TravelSkills community also joined from New York, Tel Aviv, Dallas, Austin, Seattle, Chicago, and more.

The TravelSkills team asked the most pressing questions that road warriors consider in living their best lives. Read on for the top tweets from the conversation:
