Learn how to save on your next conference or trip
It is important to learn how to save on your next conference or trip because depending on where you live you may have a hard time finding continuing education or conferences near your home town. I personally have had to do some extensive travel to get some new esthetics courses under my belt. Travelling for conferences is also an excellent way of meeting new friends in the same industry you are in.
When you travel for courses, you may be able to use the expenses as a tax write off. Save all your receipts, for food, travel, hotels, taxis etc for your accountant. Keep an envelope handy in your luggage so you don’t lose them.
Travel in a group if possible. You can save money by driving as a group or sharing hotel rooms.
Watch for early bird specials. Some conferences or class offer a discount if you book your ticket in advance.
Many events will have cash and carry. Check ahead of time so you can plan to add an extra bag or suitcase.
Can you pack everything in a backpack? Most airlines charge for luggage now so if you can travel with a carry on bag and skip the luggage.
Can the class or conference provider ship the items to your home or workplace? This can be cheaper and safer than hauling it on a plane.
