Whoever said, “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey,” probably never suffered through a long flight in the middle seat of the back row on a trans-Atlantic flight with an armrest hog on one side and a non-stop talker on the other.

Our team at Docherty Incentives & Meetings compiled a list of packing tips and travel etiquette to help you make the most of your upcoming travel incentive trip.
