WEEKEND GETAWAY TIPS FOR BUSY PROFESSIONALS W R I T T E N B Y M A R I A O R O Z O VA
As President & Creative Director of The MOD Studio, I’ve learned a thing or two about time management, and it definitely comes in handy when trying to squeeze in a quick weekend getaway. I rarely use the ‘no time’ excuse to take a couple of days away and recharge (while not totally unplugging). Time is always scarce but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a quick vacation between client meetings and business obligations. Here are some tips for all you busy professionals out there on how to use every second of vacation time you have to the fullest.

FREE MONEY Get an airline or hotel branded credit card. It’s like free money. You get free travel miles, hotel stays and other travel benefits (free presidential suite upgrade, anyone?) just by spending money you were already planning to spend. Two of my preferred cards are AAdvantage Platinum and Starwood Prefered Guest. AAdvantage earns you miles when you travel, provides you with in-flight upgrades, and grants you access to all admirals clubs. Starwood awards you one point per dollar
spent and lets you use points for free nights at any of Starwood’s nine distinct brands, including The W Hotels, The St. Regis and Le Méridien.
