If you are a business traveler, then you know that sometimes you simply cannot avoid traveling in the colder months. It’s a job thing.
Unfortunately, winter months are well known for weather-related travel issues. Cancellations and delays or even the spread of illnesses like the common cold or flu are the greatest pitfalls of a business traveler during the winter.

We are happy to share it with you.
Always know if winter is coming. Meaning to check the weather constantly. If you are traveling to one of those states where winter brings a blistering wind you need to make sure you are not taken by surprise.
It is a good idea to check the weather forecast a few days, a week before you travel so you can be fully prepared for major weather issues and have a black up plan.
Never book a layover flight. It may seem that the only inconvenient is that you’ll be wasting just a couple of hours but actually, it can be more bad news. One of it, being stranded for hours at a connecting airport. Those couple of hours that you thought you’ll waste can turn into 10 hours. Unfortunately, bad weather can be a deal breaker in these situations so try using an airline provider that has the most flights to and from your departure/arrival airports to increase your re-booking options.
If you checked the weather, then pack accordingly. For fluctuating weather, it is best to pack and wear layers of clothes. It’s easier to add layers on days that are colder, and then take it off on days when the weather is warmer.
Also, pack a hat, that will help you cover your ears, and keep the heat from escaping through your head.
Try to avoid driving. Navigating an unknown road during winter can be risky, winter roads can make driving even more hectic and dangerous.
