|Planning your business travel to Rome wisely will free you from
lots of trouble. Inadequate airline seats, long lines, heavy
traffic, and unavailable hotel rooms are just some of the
problems a Rome business traveler might encounter. Despite the
emergence of e-commerce, businessmen still travel more often for
sales and business shows. Here are some tips to make your
business travel a successful one:

used on any emergency trips.

Not all Rome hotels have inexpensive telecommunication systems
from their rooms, so always choose your hotel's business floor,
for these rooms are made especially for business traveler. These
rooms should have dual telephone/modem lines, fax machine, and
free communications between rooms.
In order to save money on calls, use your calling card and place
calls through your country's long-distance carrier or find a pay
phone in the hotel's lobby. If available, use a nearby business
center for your fax needs since fax service within your room
will probably cost more.
These days, a Rome business traveler has to bring a lot of
electronic equipment such as; cell phones, electronic
organizers, laptop computers, etc. Here are some suggestions on
how to keep your expensive business items safe:
1. Put your laptop inside a bag that will not indicate that
there's a laptop inside. The same works well for other equipment
such as camera, electronic organizer, etc.
2. Don't expose your laptop to x-ray scanners at the airport
security check, rather have it checked manually. X-rays could
damage your electronic equipment.
3. Don't place your laptop on the aircraft's overhead bins;
instead place it near your seat or under the seat in front of

Today's Rome business travelers are enjoying much comfort
compared to their counterparts a few decades ago. Low airfare,
plenty of airlines to choose from, communication equipment
(especially cell phones and laptops) make modern day business
travelers more efficient. Even on a business trip, parents can
always be with their family members and co-workers can still get
in touch with their office work, at least virtually.
